The Warriors, however, now find themselves down 3-2 in their series against the Houston Rockets, and a significant factor is the lack of ball movement.

Unfortunately for Paul and the Rockets, he's officially been ruled out of Saturday's Game 6 in Golden State. "He wanted to be out there, and for sure he's anxious. we'll see tomorrow how it goes".

Kerr said Iguodala keeps improving incrementally.

Paul left in the final minute of the Rockets' Game 5 victory after suffering a hamstring injury. It's going to be a bitter pill for Rockets fans to swallow if their team doesn't make it to the NBA Finals and they're nearly certainly going to say that the Warriors are only there because of luck. 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.

The 2018 NBA Playoffs have been a unusual one as, despite a run where it seemed like every game was a blowout, ratings have been shooting up steadily.

Included in that scoring output was a shot clock-beating 3-pointer in the fourth quarter.

The injury was so bad that immediately after Paul suffered it after taking a shot in the lane that missed, he remained on the ground as Golden State stormed back the other way on a 5-on-4 advantage.

"I feel great about where we are right now", Steve Kerr said. The Warriors opened as 10.5-point favorites, which shifted to 12 when Paul's absence became official. Now the Rockets will have to go on without him for at least one game. It mostly started with Paul and Curry going at it while Paul was with the LA Clippers, and Paul ceded the "best point guard alive" title to a player who won multiple MVPs and championships. Harden will need to carry an even bigger offensive load for the Rockets than the 22.1 field goal attempts he now is averaging per game in the postseason. "So, going home Game 6, the way we played tonight, if we can repeat that, take care of turnovers, just stay mentally locked in on the details for 48 minutes, we know we can get a win".
