Chris Paul suffers injury in the final moments of Game 5

Adjust Comment Print

The Rockets took a 3-2 series lead Thursday with a 98-94 victory in Houston. The Houston Rockets are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.3 rebounds per game. Aside from playing in their home arena again for Game 6, the Warriors may see Houston without Paul, who injured his hamstring in the closing stages of Thursday's game. The reason for Paul's action was in response to Curry doing the same thing in the midst of a Game 3 blowout win for the Warriors. If they were to win, they would face whoever comes out of the Western Conference - the Warriors or Rockets. A bruised left knee kept Andre Iguodala out for the second straight game, and Kevon Looney started in his place.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters Thompson "is moving around really well". On that night, James Harden led the way for Houston with 30 points.

But the bigger problem, and one Golden State will have to get ironed out to win this series, is Durant's penchant for going 1-on-1 so much, to the point where he and his teammates get tunnel vision.

FOP to host annual Police Memorial on Thursday
Most the time, we get criticized, and just knowing that people do support us and back us is the reason why we keep going. Most officers are a close-knit bunch, having friends or family who have lost their lives on the job.

Durant didn't necessarily listen and in fact it looks the Warriors may not have been too happy with the footage being released, possibly due to the former fact.

A switchable forward defensively capable of stretching the floor from three, Casspi would have been exactly the kind of player the Warriors could use in a matchup against the Rockets.

Golden State appeared totally out of sorts late in that clash.

Even still, Cohen contacted high ranking Russian-contact Dmitry Peskov asking for "assistance" in closing the Trump Tower deal. His Washington hotel in a former Post Office building brought in more than $40m in 2017, its first full year in operation.

It's the first time they've had back-to-back defeats since the 2016 NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers and they're now in serious danger of seeing their three-year finals streak come to an end. Paul hit the shot in the third quarter with the shot clock running out. Thompson had 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting, but he was fighting an injured left knee that happened in Game 4.

And to think, plenty anticipated the Warriors and Rockets would trade baskets in this series.

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.
