Warriors falter in Game 5 loss to Rockets

Warriors falter in Game 5 loss to Rockets

Chris Paul suffered a hamstring injury during the Rockets' Game 5 win over the Golden State Warriors, which has led many to worry that he could miss Saturday's Game 6.

The Rockets beat the Warriors 95-92 in Game 4, evening the series 2-2.

Guard Klay Thompson is battling a strained left knee, but Kerr said he expects Thompson to play tonight. But coach Steve Kerr says that Thompson will play.

Together with National Basketball Association scoring champion James Harden, who averaged 30.4 points in the regular season and has netted 28.1 a game in the playoffs, Paul had the Rockets playing as a serious championship contender. Chris Paul, playing his heart out in his first opportunity on this conference finals stage, also began the game slowly, but he came alive in the third, hitting a number of heavily contested threes.

He shook his head at the fact neither team has broken 100 points in the last two games.

"The guy is such an awesome talent and he does so much for us", Kerr said of Durant.

Harden's Game 5 performance wasn't much better as he finished 5-of-21 from the field and 0-11 from beyond the arc for 19 points, three rebounds, and four assists in 39 minutes of action.

The Warriors are the toughest team the Rockets will face in the postseason. "We're just trying to do our little piece and make it special for all these special people in Galveston County and Santa Fe". Barring a Game 3 blowout, the two teams have mostly been evenly matched throughout the entire series.

We saw the Warriors run out of gas in the fourth quarter of Game 4 - freaky rotations and poor time management playing a big role in a 12-point fourth quarter and a stunning loss the evened the series at two games apiece.

Should the Warriors win Saturday, Game 7 will be Monday back in Houston.

It was just another moment in what has been a heated series between the Rockets and Warriors and in the rivalry between Paul and Curry. In Game 5? Different story.

If he can't, the Warriors will again be at the mercy of the Rockets and the presumptive NBA MVP, Harden.
