Rockets star Chris Paul is receiving treatment “around the clock” on his injured right hamstring and coach Mike D’Antoni hopes it will only be a matter of days before he is healthy enough to play again. The timeline remained unclear whether Paul might be fine to play a possible Game 7 if the Rockets lost Saturday night’s Game 6 and had to return to Houston to face the Golden State Warriors again Monday night. Eric Gordon started in Paul’s place Saturday at Oracle Arena. “I think he’ll play as soon as he can,” D’Antoni said before the game Saturday. “It’s just not a question of trying to outsmart. He’s going to play. As soon as he’s able to walk and run, he’ll do it. There was no shot at it today.”

There was a determination there that cut through all the pressure of the moment, with those 73-win Warriors only moving on because Thompson caught fire from long range in the kind of way few ever have. “I just knew this wasn’t going to be my last game, man,” he said that night. “If it by chance was, I was going to go out shooting, being aggressive. I see a couple easy looks go in, and after that you’ve got your legs under you and everything feels like it’s going to go in. I just stuck with it, never doubted myself.”
