If at any point of the season (or the summer before the season) anyone had said the Rockets would be at home for game seven against the Golden State Warriors for a chance to go to the NBA Finals, we would all have absolutely been happy to accept.
Houston Rockets guard James Harden (13) reacts during the first half of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Saturday.
Thompson went a combined 20 of 32 from 3-point range in those two impressive Game 6 shows, Saturday and in 2016. Golden State eventually found some sort of rhythm in the second quarter, bringing the deficit back down to 10 by halftime. Stephen Curry added 29 points and five threes as well, while Kevin Durant scored 23 and Draymond Green filled the sheet with four points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, four steals and five blocks.
Thompson was brilliant from beyond the arc, hitting nine of his 14 three-point attempts. You could even say that head coach Steve Kerr has a lot on the line in Game 6. Their Eastern Conference final is also tied at 3-3 with the decider played on Sunday.
The Houston Rockets, who battled to 65 regular-season wins to earn a home-court edge throughout the National Basketball Association playoffs, aim to put that advantage to use on Monday. Prior to that injury, he had started in 11 games when Kerr wanted a faster, more athletic lineup. "We know what we have to do", Harden said. "I believe in our boys", said Thaddeus Gill. You never know how the game is going to play out.
"We have an opportunity to re-establish ourselves at home, get a big win, keep ourselves alive, and then roll the dice into Game 7", Curry said.
The Rockets are a win away from the NBA Finals and they're playing the game in Toyota Center. Plus, while James remains a marquee draw, as do the Warriors, another meeting between them this year would make four straight Warriors-Cavs Finals.
That day, the one player on the court who looked comfortable was Thompson, who had 41 points in the game - including 19 in the fourth quarter - to lead the Warriors to an improbable comeback victory. He was a flawless 37-for-37 from the line in the series through five games, and then missed four (10-of-14) free throws.
