Rockets back in control. Crazy game of 4 quarters. Warriors blew it in 4th quarter scoring only 12 points.

Curry got hot for a bit in the 3rd but other than that the warriors were off tonight. Need to win in Houston now,going to be tough

A lot of Warriors fans furious with Kerr for not calling the timeout when Klay got stuck with a few seconds left.  Also for benching Curry when he'd caught fire and the Rockets immediately went on a run.

With Klay and Iguadala carrying knocks now and home advantage lost, it's not looking great.

I see in his post game interview he says that Draymond was trying to call one and that the officials weren't looking towards the bench for him to call one.

The GSW big players all shot poorly and terribly in the 4th. There seemed to be a lot of dumb shot choices too and the ball movement wasn't good.

Anyone think the Cavs win in 7?

Will take a LeBron game for the ages to do it. 40 point triple double and Love, Korver and JR shooting lights out from 3.

3-2 Rockets but Chris Paul looked like he did his hamstring.
Very messy but very exciting game.

The Warriors were poor again. Klay was awful in the first half but battled through it and started making some big shots in the 2nd. Curry battled back from a poor start too and again had some great drives to the basket but has lost his shooting mojo. Draymond tried as hard as ever but was sloppy and had 6 turnovers. I thought Durant was very poor last night even though he scored 29 and is like a separate entity on this team. Just seemed to be forcing it all night. dribbling into traffic and taking terrible shots. He made a few great 3s but his performance was worse than his numbers would suggest.

Iggy has been a huge loss obviously.

In the last 2 games the Warriors had possessions to win or tie in the last 30 seconds. They looked clueless and panicked, took bad options and you'd have to blame that on Kerr.

Hard to see Paul being right for the rest of the series and if he is done you'd still have to make the Warriors favorites.

I don't know if any of us would have predicted the current standings in the conference finals and which teams would be 3-2 up... Some great competitive back and forth games. The playoffs have been excellent viewing, compelling sporting contests - I'm loving it....

Crazy stuff from LeBron. Huge Game 7 in store now. Can he do that again after playing 46 minutes?! Celtics haven't lost at home yet this postseason

Goodnight Boston. Delighted. LeBron is probably the GoAT now.

He's something else.

Cavs will be cannon fodder for whoever wins the West.

I think this is the season that LeBron deserves the most kudos for. Fair f**ks to him.
