LeBron's Epic Celebration in Cavs Locker Room After Game 7

Klay Thompson

The Houston Rockets are out of the National Basketball Association playoffs after losing Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to the Golden State Warriors 101-92.

The Rockets and their Most Valuable Player candidate James Harden host the reigning champion Golden State Warriors in a decisive game seven of the Western Conference finals on Monday with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line.

The Golden State Warriors steamrolled the Houston Rockets in the second half last game to force tonight's Game 7.

Former Aussie star's remarkable feat in IPL final
Brathwaite, who fell in the final delivery of Hyderabad's innings, chipped in with a valuable 21 runs off 11 balls. In his 175-IPL career, Dhoni has scored 4016 runs at an average of 40.16, including 20 half-centuries.

Chris Paul missed the Game 6 of the series due to a hamstring injury for Rockets. Still, the odds are against them; they may have to win without Chris Paul, their superstar point guard who is a game-time decision with a hamstring strain.

About Thompson: He was locked in, emotionally and physically, popping off screens, catching and shooting, creating space to get good looks and punching the air after big 3s. Throw in some bad defensive communication errors by the Warriors, and the Rockets were raining threes in the first half - 11-of-22, with Gordon going 4-of-4.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets will be kicking themselves after getting blown out by the Warriors after jumping out to that early 17-point lead.

Even LeBron James might not be able to save these Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cleveland Cavaliers face elimination against the Boston Celtics on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals . Definitely going back to Cleveland on Friday, we had to take care of business, and that's what we did".

Paul's status will loom large over Game 7, but it may not mean anything if the Warriors finally play up to their potential.

The Warriors spurned to let their succession wrap up on Friday night, outscoring the Rockets at their home court Oracle Arena in a must-win Game 6 matchup during their Western Conference Finals. The Rockets can't blame this loss exclusively on Paul's hamstring injury, but his absence had a clear effect on Houston's already thin rotation. He'll become an instant hero in Houston if he pulls a Willis Reed and inspires the Rockets in Game 7, then again if he beats his pal LeBron in The Finals. It's no coincidence that Curry and Thompson both had a huge game in Paul's absence. With the offense not running through Kevin Durant isolations, it just flowed better (the Warriors best lineup of the night was Curry, Thompson, Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, and Nick Young, +13 in just more than eight minutes). Harden had to rest during a run by Golden State in the fourth quarter and Houston clearly lacked someone that could dominate the ball and score points. The Oakland-based franchise went on to win Game 7 and make it to the Finals. The head coach says Paul's recovery is going well, but he's going to be listed as questionable for Monday's game.

Golden State and Cleveland will meet in the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season after the Warriors prevailed in their elimination game against Houston.
