Houston provides update on Chris Paul's injury

Andre Iguodala’s injury and the small-ball Rockets have put the Warriors’ center-heavy roster in the crosshairs

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said his star's spirits "aren't great" after Game 5 and that Paul is "worried" - which was an early indication that the injury was more than just a ding. 'He wanted to be out there, and for sure he's anxious. we'll see tomorrow how it goes'.

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

Warriors bench: David West, Quinn Cook, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston and Nick Young combined to play 53 minutes and scored just four points on 2-of-8 shooting. Just like Cleveland in the East, a run of three straight trips to the championship round is on the verge of ending.

"We had to rely on our defense once again", Harden said.

The Warriors' Kevin Durant reacts in the final seconds of game five.

Quinn Cook, who normally doesn't get the green light late in games, missed a three-pointer with 42 seconds left.

The Houston Rockets edged the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, 98-94, on Thursday, May 24, to move within one win of reaching the NBA Finals.

But Gordon came up with his steal when Green lost control in the lane and added two free throws with 2.4 seconds left to put it away. 'I lost the ball. not much more to it than that'.

In Game 5, he went 5-of-21 from the field (0-of-11 from three), although he was 9-of-9 from the line.

'Who cares, ' he said.

"We take it game by game, position by position, try to compete our butts off and give ourselves the best chance".
