Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni insists his team has "the right formula" despite seeing it miss a playoff-record 27 straight 3-pointers in the Game 7 loss to the Warriors. "Somebody asked, 'Four years in a row getting to the finals, do you appreciate it?' Yes". Most assume the Rockets and Paul had a wink-wink deal in place for a max deal this summer when Paul agreed to be traded to Houston last summer as opposed to signing as a free agent.

But the Rockets, whose system depends so heavily on their ability to make the most of the three-point shot, couldn't find the net from long range.
