Rockets take Game 5, inch closer to dethroning Warriors

Rockets push defending champ Warriors to the brink

"I think they're angry", Kerr said.

"We'll see [if he can play Game 6]".

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. "They'll do whatever they can do". If he isn't, we have enough guys.

"I think Klay may have been in the far right corner so we had the floor spread. Just too many turnovers, too many reaches, and if we settle down a little bit, we're going to be in really good shape". However, Curry missed a runner off the glass with Golden State trailing by one point down the stretch. He limped noticeably during the next two possessions and checked out of the game after briefly consulting with Rockets athletic trainer Keith Jones during a timeout with 22.4 seconds remaining.

The Rockets were forced to play out the final seconds sans their superstar, but they held on to win the game and move one step closer to the franchise's first NBA Finals appearance since their 1994-95 championship season.

2016: Paul broke a bone in his right hand during Game 4 of the first round of the playoffs against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Paul has been sidelined by a hamstring injury on four occasions during his career, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Paul injured his hamstring late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 Thursday night when he landed after a missed jump shot.

"There is a concern, obviously", Rockets forward Trevor Ariza said. Just with the talent we have on this team and the resiliency and whatnot, you know, we can get the job done.

Houston won Game 5 despite James Harden missing all 11 of his 3-point attempts while finishing with 19 points on 5-of-21 shooting.
