The season now comes down to 24 minutes for two teams. It’s Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, and we’re already halfway through. And the Golden State Warriors have some work to do, as they trail the Houston Rockets 54-43.
It was a horrible start, as Klay Thompson picked up three fouls only a few minutes into the game, and Golden State was forced to patch things up with Quinn Cook, Shaun Livingston, and Nick Young.
Steve Kerr summed up their start well during his interview before the second quarter, when he called the first some of the worst basketball the team has ever played.

Unfortunately the team tried to one-up themselves when they started the second quarter with even worse basketball, and quickly found themselves trailing by 15.
They were beat up one side and down the other. Houston had better offense, better defense, and most importantly, a lot more energy and heart. They looked like a team that needed a win, and the Warriors didn’t.
Let’s roll some highlights:

Uhhhh......yeah, that’s all we’ve got.
Time for one of those big three quarters, please and thank you.
