Mike D'Antoni provides update on Chris Paul

Earlier tonight, a Texas Congresswoman by the name of Sheila Jackson Lee created a firestorm on Twitter when she tweeted out that she was excited to see Chris Paul back on the floor tonight.

With their backs up against the wall, many expected the Golden State Warriors to come out firing against the Houston Rockets in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. The Rockets raced to a 17-point lead in the first quarter of Game 6 only to run out of steam without Paul present to alleviate the pressure on fellow guards James Harden and Eric Gordon.

If Iguodala and Paul return, they may not necessarily be at full strength, but their presence will certainly make an already exciting game that much more compelling. They've won two out of the last three National Basketball Association championships so this kind of stage isn't something they aren't familiar with. He was ruled out of Game 6 the next day and had been receiving treatment almost around the clock in hopes of being able to play in Game 7.

Here are all the Golden State vs Houston Game 7 details including the live stream and start time.

Paul briefly tested the hamstring on Monday, but it was clear that he wouldn't be able to play in Game 7. If he were to play anyhow, it could affect his ability for the finals, as well as long-term health.

Game 7 will be on Monday night in Houston.

Décès de Pierre Bellemare : les journalistes et animateurs sous le choc
Puis enchaîne avec " Déjeuner Show " (1969-1972), "les Dossiers extraordinaires" (1974-1976), ou encore " Le Sisco " (1978-1981). C'est donc le père de Pierre Bellemare qui prit la succession de son parent après le décès de celui-ci.

Who will advance to the NBA Finals, and who will win the title?

"There's no pressure", said Harden, who had 32 points and nine assists but committed nine turnovers in Game 6. The Warriors can get a mismatch on the switch and attack just like Houston does, but it hasn't proven to be as effective.

Risking permanent damage by playing thru the injury may not be worthwhile.

Teams have to balance winning both now and the future. They had 25 in the entire second half.

Paul is in sports hell. He asked, rhetorically, if the Rockets would take a Game 7 on their home court against the Warriors and, in a heartbeat, D'Antoni acknowledged the benefit of that scenario. But he may have no choice.

And, if it is, there will be one reason for it: the Warriors' hubris will have finally caught up with them. Shimming one moment, and injured the next. He must play like an MVP if the Rockets want to take down this Warriors team.
