Rockets' Chris Paul will miss Game 6 with hamstring injury

The Houston Rockets earned a thrilling Game 5 victory on Thursday, moving one win away from The Finals with a 98-94 triumph over the Golden State Warriors. Tipoff of the TNT telecast from Oracle Arena is scheduled for 6 p.m. A lot of fuss has been made about James Harden's shooting struggles in the series, but if you ask the man himself he responds, "Who cares?" as he did after Game 5. Gordon averaged 21.5 points and 3.4 assists in 30 games as a fill-in starter this season. He'll seek mismatches, but Thompson will be the primary defender.

"I was just telling them again today, we want to get up between 40 and 50 threes", D'Antoni said after the Rockets attempted a series-high 43 three-pointers in their Game 5 win on Thursday. His production, particularly off catch-and-shoot releases, is one of the surest signs of the Warriors offense working as designed. It has been jarring to see arguably the greatest offensive team of all time fritter away games with disgusting offense, but their sloppiness combined with a physical, switching Rockets defense that has made it a point to extend well out on the perimeter has thrown the Warriors out of sorts.

Chris Paul will miss the game that could put his team in the NBA Finals. The only question now is if the Rockets will return home as Western Conference champs or with a Game 7 against Golden State on deck.

Rockets: Defeated Minnesota in five games in the first round, defeated Utah in five games in the conference semifinals. "He'll be evaluated tomorrow, but obviously you saw him limp off, and he's a tough guy", Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He's practically won us the last two games".

Golden State is 4-9 ATS in its past 13 games at home. "He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", Kerr said. He's shot 46 percent from the field and 37 percent from three.

James Harden earned a spot in the record books with his inaccuracy from 3-point range, but he settled a little bit less as the game went on, and he got to the line eight times in the second half.

Durant was blown out by the Miami Heat in the 2012 NBA Finals alongside Russell Westbrook, but the NBA world gave he and the Oklahoma City Thunder a slight pass because it was their first Finals appearance, and they were a very young team.
