NBA: Playoffs-Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re a little too nervous to function properly, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals is here, and the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets will leave it all on the line.

The winner will get a date with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. The loser will regroup and start preparing for next season.

It doesn’t get any more exciting than this.

The unfortunate injuries

While Game 7 is still extremely exciting and important, it has unfortunately been impacted by injuries. For the Warriors, Andre Iguodala will miss his fourth straight game with a knee contusion. And for the Rockets, Chris Paul will miss his second consecutive game with a strained hamstrings.

Both players are critical pieces, and it’s a bummer for them, their teams, and all NBA fans that these two are out.

Who will step up?

With the season hanging in the balance, the Warriors need strong performances from everyone. And if they’re going to win, someone’s going to need to step up big time. Will it be Stephen Curry? Klay Thompson? Kevin Durant? Draymond Green?

We’ll find out soon enough. Until then, for hopefully not the final time this season, let’s all say it together....

Let’s. Go. DUBS!!!
