The NBA Western Conference Finals continued. The Warriors took home the rocket challenge at home. Although this game is not what everyone calls the "Lord of the Kings" battle, but this game is a game for both sides who is not willing to lose, especially for the Rockets once they lose the game. Means that it will be behind 1:3, and in the history of the NBA can be described as a 1:3 final reversal can be described as very rare, so in this case the Rockets from the start of the game after the start is a bit nervous, but fortunately enter the second After the festival, the Rockets gradually found the offensive feel. Especially in the final section, Paul began to storm away and took away the game. Eventually, after four quarters of fierce competition, the Rockets defeated the Warriors 95:92 away to rewrite the score. 2:2 level.
Of course the Warriors lost a bit of a loss for this game, though in the second The Rockets scored a climax in scores and surpassed the Warriors by 7 points, but in the third quarter, the Warriors not only surpassed the score but also led the Rockets by 10 points. Even when entering the fourth quarter, the Warriors still kept 10 Leading in points, but in such a favorable situation, the Warriors did not hold their own victory, watching the Rockets at home as they took away the game was a victory, and losing the game is not only for the Warriors It is only a game, because the loss of this game is likely to affect the whole series.
Perhaps everyone will ask why the Warriors will eventually be reversed if they lead 10 points. Some fans of this problem may have said that in the final quarter, Paul began to run away, especially his three-pointers became the key to the game. In addition to Paul, Harden began to play constantly in the hands of the basket, either making fouls or scoring. At the same time, Harden made more efforts on the defensive end, allowing the Warriors to score only 12 points in the fourth quarter. Obviously this is undoubtedly the main reason for the Warriors to lose, but there is a secondary reason for the Warriors to lose. That is Cole's arrogant Cole's "gambling", the most able to show Cole arrogant one shot is in 12 seconds left in the last momentWait.
The Rockets led the Warriors by 2 points in the final 12 seconds of the game, and this time Harden The three-pointer did not drop Green into the offensive glass. There is no doubt that in this case any coach will call a timeout to set up the final attack, but Cole did not call a timeout but allowed Durant to hold the ball. Unfortunately, in the final 7 seconds, Durant did not choose to play but instead passed the ball to Thompson who did not get out of defense. In Thompson's moment of catching the ball, there was 6 seconds remaining, and in this case a three-pointer. Green outside the line shouted for Cole, but Cole was still indifferent and Thompson apparently failed to get out of the defense. Obviously there is an unshirkable responsibility for this ball Cole, you can imagine if Cole is called to suspend the placement of a successful two-pointer tactics, and once the Warriors successfully scored this ball then almost rockets into the overtime Impossible Warriors' opponent.
After the game, Cole responded to reporters why he did not call a pause: "I want to Called a timeout. Green tried to pause in the last 4 seconds, but the referee did not see and they did not see the bench. I was hoping they would see us call a timeout.” Although Cole said so, we can see from the shots. To Cole did not want to pause, but continued to shout at the scene. To put it bluntly, in Cole's view, he believes that his players can solve the game, or it can be said that Cole was "gambling" his own feelings, but Cole's "gambling" coaching is undoubtedly personally killing the Warriors. Hope, but also vainly sent away a victory.
