Report: Chris Paul denied Curry practice time before Game 6

According to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic, Houston Rockets’ point guard Chris Paul denied Golden State Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry practice time prior to the two’s Game 6 matchup the following night.

The incident reportedly began when Curry’s manager, Eric Housen, scheduled a shooting session for the star guard in the Toyota Center, which is the home arena for the Rockets and was the site for Friday’s Game 6 matchup. One thing seemingly led to the other and Paul was informed of Curry’s plan. The Rockets’ star point guard rushed to the arena and claimed the floor for himself, even turning down an offer from Curry to split the court.

This move seemed to affect Curry very little during the game, seeing as the 2-time MVP dropped 33 points in the second half of Friday’s win versus the Houston Rockets in Game 6. With the help of teammates like Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, who dropped 27 and 17 respectively, Curry and the Warriors surged in the second half to defeat the Rockets and advance to the Western Conference Finals. Paul finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds during 38 minutes of play in the Rockets’ loss
