Rockets ride final stretch to 3-2 lead

Chris Paul

"We just wanted to step up".

I don't want to go home. It just sometimes happens, and give them credit or whatever. "But I still think at the end of the day, we're a tough team and we can still find ways to win". But they're not soft, and they proved it.

"I like what you said. I shouldn't have quoted myself, but I misquoted myself".

Paul has been averaging 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game in this series, 43.3 percent from the field and 34.5 percent on 3-pointers.

LeBron James was unanimously selected to the All-NBA first team for a record 12th time, while Houston's James Harden also appeared on all 100 first-team ballots. Now the Rockets are one win short from making their first NBA Finals since 1995. Golden State still has the tools to beat the Rockets but will have to play even better tonight with Iguodala out. Houston committed 11 first-half turnovers, five early. The Rockets missed a billion threes in game five and still won. Oh, and the typically subdued Thompson let his emotions flow for all to see: He flexed his biceps Draymond Green style, pumped his arms like Kevin Durant and yelled out the way Stephen Curry often does at Oracle Arena.

Championship play-off final: Can you name past 10 clubs to win it?
Ream's only Premier League experience came in 13 games for Bolton Wanderers in 2012, after he left the New York Red Bulls in MLS. But football won today. 'He will be playing for a top four club in the next few years, if not I will be very, very surprised.

In a slugfest of a game, those points mattered. We know Harden and Ariza did recruit Paul heavily. If he isn't, we have enough guys, and it's time for somebody else to step up. If we keep attacking and score, then we can stay there within range, and we did. There were no highlight plays but rather a series of mishaps that shaped the result of the game. "Big defensive stops, big rebounds".

Rockets star guard Chris Paul exited Game 5 of the Western Conference finals in the last minute after hurting his right hamstring.

Gordon tallied a team-high 24 points off the bench.

"Klay is moving around very well", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. They're still in a realistic spot to add one in the next couple weeks. "We've got too much talent not just to hit singles like Coach always says". As a team, they shot just 39.2 percent and knocked down just 52.9 percent of their free throws (9-for-17). "We have two chances at this, but we have a really good chance Saturday". "That's why I let them play". Golden State became reliant on the three-point shot and they stopped dropping.

The fourth quarter was a different story.
