Twitter reacts to Warriors choking away Game 5

Houston announced Friday that Paul would miss Game 6 with a hamstring strain, delivering a sizeable blow to their chances of ending the Western Conference Finals in Oakland, California.

"I don't have a doubt", D'Antoni said.

"We'll see", D'Antoni said. In the Conference Finals though they are only averaging 276.2 passes per game, which is 58 fewer. The Warriors host Game 6 on Saturday and are trailing 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Just like Cleveland in the East, a run of three straight trips to the championship round is on the verge of ending.

Center Clint Capela made a pair of highlight-reel stops at the rim - turning back a Durant layup and rejecting a Draymond Green dunk attempt.

Curry missed a floater and Trevor Ariza grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 10 seconds left.

Curry added that he was excited to go back home for Game 6.

Green was asked what was supposed to happen on the play.

James Harden, their key player, said: "For us nothing changes". The ball squirted away in the direction of Eric Gordon, who was immediately fouled and sank the two free throw attempts to seal the game. Phil Jackson said, 'Who's open?' He said, 'John Paxson'. "I'm just missing shots, but we're winning".

The Rockets have a one-game cushion and the advantage of playing a potential Game 7 at home.

It's Houston's second straight win in the series after snapping Golden State's National Basketball Association playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Tuesday night.

Despite his worries about the injury in the midst of the most important playoff series of his career, Paul still seems confident he will take the floor Saturday night to help the Rockets take down the loaded Warriors squad.

With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line.

Despite the loss and facing elimination, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he wasn't anxious.

If you've followed FiveThirtyEight's analysis of Golden State this season, you know that the team's occasional sloppiness has been perhaps our biggest concern surrounding the Warriors this year - in part because advanced metrics have suggested they may not be as well-equipped to overcome the turnovers as they have been in the past. Cp3 avoided the media after the game, which was surprising, given that he was the hero, scoring 18 of his 20 points in the 2nd half after a brutal 0-for-7 first half.

The Golden State Warriors face elimination from the playoffs after a narrow defeat in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
