  • Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson celebrates during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets in Oakland Calif. Saturday

If the Golden State Warriors are anxious as they head into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals today (9am Brunei time) on the brink of elimination, they aren't showing it. They tied the series, 3-3.

It's worth watching early on to see if the tweak to his knee suffered in Game 6 has any impact - he scored 12 points after it in that game, but it's possible it tightened up after his body cooled down. Sign up for the free DubsDaily newsletter. You could even say that head coach Steve Kerr has a lot on the line in Game 6.

There's no better way to end this exhilarating series and we're surely in for a classic encounter on Monday night.

For the second time in three seasons, the Warriors have cheated death because of Thompson.

Surely enough, Houston has taken a 3-2 series lead, and the Warriors haven't swept a postseason series.

Golden State's stars did as they were supposed to with Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry taking turns hitting big shots and filling up the box score. As Thompson said, "we felt like we gifted them a great first quarter".

"It would be a tough spot to put him in", Kerr said of potentially playing McCaw in Game 6. Going into this year's Western Conference Finals, they knew they were getting just that and then some.

On the secret to their second-half turnaround, Thompson - who was nine-for-14 from three-point range - added: "Effort, intensity and passion".

Williams , a three-time French Open champion, is expected to play in her first major since returning from maternity leave. Williams tweeted that, for the second time in a week, she was being asked to produce a sample for an anti-doping test.

Kerr jokingly chalked up the difference to "incredible half-time adjustments". "We want to take advantage of it". We're still confident. We're a confident group. The Houston Rockets are averaging 105.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 103.3 points on 46.4 percent shooting. He lasted five minutes and the Lakers went down in four games to the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons.

Whether Chris Paul plays or not, the Rockets have an opportunity to knock out the team that had dominated the western conference over the past few years.

Not that this should be surprising.

James Harden leads all scorers with 22 points. And the Warriors recorded a +371 plus-minus rating during that stretch. That's the most in a game over the last 5 postseasons.

Manchester United set to announce first mega-money summer transfer
The 25-year old finished the campaign with 4 goals and 7 assists in 37 appearances across all competitions. If he were to arrive at Manchester United he would add to manager Jose Mourinho's options.

Golden State stymied Harden on consecutive possessions early in the fourth quarter with smothering defense led by Nick Young and several helpers. The Warriors also have gone 4-1 in Game 6's since 2015, and avoided elimination just as they did in the 2016 Western Conference Finals against Oklahoma City.

My guess for Monday night: Paul tries to play, but can't. Just gotta be laser focused from the jump.

And quite frankly, if Golden State can't, at the very least, win Game 6 on their home floor with Paul sidelined, they don't deserve to be in the conversation for being the best team in National Basketball Association history. "That's our challenge mentality of having same mentality in the last 36 minutes". "Then once you get them going and they get out of the box - we didn't communicate really well two or three times, and then they just got on a roll. I think we'll be ready to play". "I can't wait till Tuesday".

It's reportedly less than likely that he'll be able to play in Game 7, but he's doing everything he can to make it happen.

Cohen's business partner to cooperate with prosecutors
Freidman pleaded guilty Tuesday to pocketing $5 million in passenger fees that were supposed to fund public transportation. At this point, Michael Cohen , the only thing he can do to save himself from going to jail, because this guy, Mr.

"Please don't miss a game", Curry cracked. Now they go back to Houston where the role players are more consistent and the whistle tends to favor the otherside.
