Jeff Green will start Game 7 against the Celtics on Sunday.

He'll replace Kevin Love and start his first game since Game 1 of the first round against Indiana. Green logged 31 minutes in Game 6, his most of the playoffs. He had 14 points, but he'll probably have to score at least that much if the Cavs want to advance to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year.

Coach Steve Kerr said he's assuming that Andre Iguodala (leg) will not play in Game 7 on Monday against Houston.

Kerr also mentioned that Iguodala is literally day-to-day. He's sat out the last three games and is said to still have pain when he runs. Until reported otherwise, Iguodala will more than likely miss Game 7. Kevon Looney will likely continue to start in his place with Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and recently activated Patrick McCaw seeing some more playing time.

Stephen Curry scored 29 points during a 115-86 victory in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday, adding five rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers and matching a postseason career-high three blocks.

He started off slow but picked it up in the second half hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 16 points. This was a statement game for Curry and it’s no secret that the Warriors are at their best when Steph is running the offense. The Rockets certainly knew that as they held the Warriors to 93.0 points per game in the previous two as they kept the passes down, but Steph dominated during the second half as the Warriors crushed Houston 64-25 in the second half. Curry is averaging 30.2 points per game inside Oracle this series compared to just 18.6 in Houston, so we'll see if that trend continues in a critical Game 7 on Monday.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, the chances of Chris Paul (hamstring) playing in Game 7 on Monday are "less likely than likely, but working every angle to try."

You don't hear that verbiage on an injury too often, but it still seems like he's closer to doubtful than anything else. Without Paul, even at home, the Rockets will have an uphill battle ahead of them to make it to their first NBA Finals since 1995. We'll know more after he's re-evaluated once the team returns to Houston.
May 27 - 12:37 AM

Klay Thompson scored 35 points, making 9-of-14 3-pointers with six rebounds, two assists and four steals in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday.

He loves Game 6 elimination games. You might remember Klay going off for 19 points in the fourth at OKC in Game 6 during the 2016 Western Conference Finals, and he was asked about it after the game. "I don't wanna go home. We worked too hard this season to go home," Klay said after tonight's win. This is the first time both Conference Finals have reached a Game 7 since 1979. Back then there was no 3-point line, but there will be plenty of those in Houston on Monday when Klay and the Dubs come to town.
May 27 - 12:20 AM

Draymond Green scored four points with 10 rebounds, nine assists, four steals and five blocks in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday.

He had one of those Draymond nights, coming just short of a 5x5 while fulfilling his promise of a Game 7. It was Green's postseason low in points, but he made up with outstanding defense on Clint Capela to go with the stat-stuffing line. He wasn't worried coming into this one and you can bet he'll have that same confidence and fire for Game 7 on Monday.
May 27 - 12:12 AM

Patrick McCaw scored two points with two rebounds and one steal in four minutes in Game 6 against Houston on Saturday.

He hadn't played since March 31st against Sacramento after a scary fall and wasn't even expected to play at all this postseason. McCaw even called his parents that he would be active, and the crowd was pumped up when he hit the court. While McCaw only got in for the last 4:28 once the game was out of reach, he played solid for those minutes. We could see him play more minutes in Game 7 on Monday as he gets readjusted to being in the lineup.
May 27 - 12:05 AM

Andre Iguodala (leg) said he considers himself questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

There really hasn't been much optimism on Iguodala. Coach Steve Kerr said today that he wouldn't play him until he can run, and he's also having trouble moving laterally. The Warriors really couldn't find a fifth option until the second half, so maybe Kerr mixes it up. Expect to see Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and maybe even Pat McCaw see some run.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

James Harden scored 32 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals, four 3-pointers and a postseason-high nine turnovers in a 115-86 Game 6 loss against the Warriors on Saturday.

He did all he could to keep Houston in this game, but the Rockets had 21 turnovers as the biggest problem today. Harden now has five career playoff games with at least nine turnovers, giving him the most such games ever (LeBron James has three). On the plus side, Harden was able to snap out of a brutal 0-of-22 slump from deep with a couple treys in the first quarter. He'll need it to come together in Game 7 at Toyota Center on Monday.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

Gerald Green made 4-of-6 from the field for 11 points with one block and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes as the sixth man against the Warriors on Saturday.

It's the most minutes he's played all postseason and the most points he's scored since Game 3 of the first round against Minnesota. If Chris Paul remains out, expect Green to again receive a heavier load of minutes in Game 7 on Monday, especially if guys like Luc Mbah a Moute come out flat.
May 26 - 11:48 PM

Eric Gordon scored 19 points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding with two rebounds, four 3-pointers and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He came out shooting the lights out, scoring eight points in the first 4:30 of the game and going 4-of-4 from deep in the first half with 16 points. The second half was a different story as Gordon went 1-of-4 from both the field and the line. If Chris Paul is out for Game 7 on Monday, he'll have to put together a complete game for the Rockets to advance to the NBA Finals.
May 26 - 11:37 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute had one rebound and two steals in 15 minutes in his return to action in the Rockets Game 6 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

He hasn't played since Game 3 and that may have been due to his shoulder issue, but with the Rockets shorthanded he returned to the rotation. Mbah a Moute continued to struggle, and he may not have played in the second half had the game been closer. Depending on Chris Paul's status and how coach Mike D'Antoni feels, he may or may not play in Game 7 on Monday.
May 26 - 11:29 PM

Clint Capela scored two points (1-of-4 FG, 0-of-2 FT) with 16 rebounds and an assist in Houston's 115-86 Game 6 loss to Golden State on Saturday.

He didn't score until the 5:58 mark in the fourth quarter and the Rockets were -32 when he was on the floor. This was his lowest scoring game of the postseason and worst +/- of the entire season. Capela was big on the boards, but he'll need a better performance in Game 7 if the Rockets want to win.
May 26 - 11:23 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said he won't play Andre Iguodala (leg) until he's able to run without pain.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines and with the way Kerr is talking, he's still got pain and it may be some time before he's ready to play. If the series goes to Game 7, his status is certainly in question.
