"I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound".
The numbers show Lue's concern is genuine. The game went to overtime where they were outscored by 10.
It was the first time in Paul's career that he reached the conference finals. The Rockets and Celtics went seven games with Cleveland and Golden State and held 3-2 leads in their respective series.

The Golden State Warriors played coy when asked to reminisce about Klay Thompson's Game 6 performance against the OKC Thunder in the 2016 playoffs. Missing 3-point shots would be disastrous - the Rockets missed 27 straight 3-pointers in Game 7 - because the Warriors will turn the long rebounds into fast breaks.

ABC will have the TV coverage, and a live stream will be available online with WatchESPN. "Individual player accomplishment and team accomplishments", he said.
"If James and the Cavaliers win Game 1, you know, the interest is going to skyrocket because they are going to have done what very few except for them maybe think they can do, which is win at Golden State", Van Gundy said.
