Rockets a step closer to dethroning Warriors

Rockets a step closer to dethroning Warriors

The shot was incredible (and lucky), but topped by the celebration.

"It feels good just to play for another game, and like I've always said "Game 7" is the best two words in sports", LeBron said.

Paul had just hit a 3-pointer midway through the third quarter of Thursday night's Game 5, when he made the move. The Celtics now lead the Cavaliers 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals.

Chris Paul has spent a good chunk of his prime trying in vain to keep up with Stephen Curry. 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. He started 30 games this season while Paul and James Harden dealt with injuries.

"We've been here before", Curry said.

Paul scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half to help Houston take a 3-2 series lead.

Paul arguably has been the Rockets' best player against the Warriors in the conference finals. D'Antoni said forward Luc Mbah a Moute would likely get minutes in Game 6; Mbah a Moute had fallen out of the rotation after struggling upon returning from a dislocated right shoulder for the second time this season. "They weren't great shots".

"You'd be a fool not to believe me", Green said when asked about the team's inconsistent play.

Paul eventually checked out of the game with 22.7 seconds remaining, watching the game in a slumped position on the bench and only getting up once to huddle with his teammates during a stoppage in play.

Paul did not even address the media post game because he was busy receiving treatment.

"We don't want to come and be pouting around", he said. "But great opportunity for other guys and we have plenty to choose from and we'll be ready".

The Rockets announced Friday that they will be without point guard Chris Paul, who has a right hamstring strain.

If the Rockets win, they can await Paul's medical update as they prepare for their first trip to the NBA Finals since winning the title in 1995. Without him, Golden State's margin for error widens significantly, as the Rockets have no obvious replacement for Paul on either side of the ball.
