DOWN GOES DELFINO

Rockets swingman Carlos Delfino missed Game 6 on Friday with a fractured foot that will require surgery. In the series, Delfino averaged 24 minutes, nine points and two assists. Delfino made 11 of 313 3-point attempts.

“Feel bad for Carlos,” Houston coach Kevin McHale said before the game. “Tough kid. He's had bone spurs for a long time. Never makes excuses. We'll miss his big-shot ability and guarding multiple positions.

“But ask Oklahoma City, there's not too much sympathy for anybody getting hurt.”

LIN REJOINS ROCKETS LINEUP

Houston guard Jeremy Lin rejoined the lineup Friday but came off the bench rather than taking his customary spot in the starting lineup.

Lin missed Games 4 and 5 due to a bruised right chest muscle.
