    Thank you Kenny Smith for mentioning McGee needs some minutes. Houston is crashing the offensive glass on every possession, only way to combat that is to get a true big in there to bring the energy back. Durant isn’t getting it done at PF.

    Weird play by Durant to end the quarter. Superstars draw fouls in that situation when the defender isn’t giving any room. He just threw up a wild shot with no chance of going in.

    Not quite. The referees swallowed their whistles until Golden State got back into it. Houston drove the ball, and couldn’t get a call to save their lives. This sort of crap has cost the Gators in the past. Swallow the whistle to get the other team back into it, and then the momentum shift is so great that the “better” team up to the point is now having to overcome a momentum shift they shouldn’t have had to.

    Can we talk about the problems GSWs are having when we're talking about JaVale McGee coming off the bench to save them? And all this while CP3 hasn't played at all for Houston tonight!

    EDIT: Holy cow! What the heck just happened?

    25 straight missed 3s for Houston, not a typo.

    So I have no shame in admitting this - I got frustrated and we were watching Black Hawk Down (hey it's Memorial Day appropriate and the best military film of all time). So I've missed much of the 2nd but read somewhere Draymond got in KD's face. Someone please tell me that's true so I can begin searching feverishly for video evidence! :p

    So the Golden State Warriors win Game#7 in Houston 101-92, taking the Western Conference Finals Series 4-3 and advancing to face LeBron and the Cavaliers for the 4th time.

    Sweet.
    Guess I will watch the finals now. Well, as long as there isn't a Gator baseball/softball game on.

    You've got your priorities in order! ;)

    Meanwhile I'm trying to catch up on what I missed last night by watching highlights from the 3rd and 4th quarters, and as expected, there's plenty of Steph and KD to be had. Gotta laugh at this best-of Steph from the 3Q at around the 9sec mark..."eludes Harden" indeed. :rolleyes:
