Rockets a step closer to dethroning Warriors

Rockets a step closer to dethroning Warriors

There was Paul on Thursday night, carrying the Houston Rockets in the third quarter, with an array of improbable shots, most notably a double-pump three-pointer as the shot clock expired. Harden, who was zero for 11 on 3s, missed his last one with less than 30 seconds left, giving the Warriors the ball back.

However, while Paul's trolling of Curry made a lot of fans laugh, the point guard has handed the Rockets a major injury blow ahead of Game 6.

The Rockets provided tickets for more than 300 Santa Fe High seniors, along with some staff and first responders, to attend the game and players wore a commemorative patch on their uniforms.

The Rockets were forced to play out the final seconds sans their superstar, but they held on to win the game and move one step closer to the franchise's first NBA Finals appearance since their 1994-95 championship season. He had been playing well before that, scoring 18 of his 20 points in the second half and even shimmying in front of the shimmy master himself, Stephen Curry.

"We'll see [if he can play Game 6]".

What made us really think about it the most was when Jesse [Lingard] and I went to visit some of the younger victims in hospital. Later, thousands of people - including a choir of survivors - are due to gather for a concert and sing-song in St.

Late in the fourth quarter, Chris Paul suffered a hamstring injury that forced him off the court in the final minute. "The play was unfolding nicely, it just didn't turn out obviously".

Kevin Durant scored 29 points for the Warriors, who lost in Game Five of a play-off series for just the second time since 2015.

Replacing Paul's point production and defensive work will require greater effort from Rockets standouts Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela. He's shot 46 percent from the field and 37 percent from three.

If you don't ever believe anything I say, believe this: "We're a group of champions". "So we understand that and we know the things that we can improve on, and we'll improve on those things".
