Houston got a 95-92 win in Game Four on Tuesday to even the series at 2-2 heading in Thursday's game. Now back in Houston, are the Rockets going to secure another win tonight as the smallest of favorites?

Gordon has played a big role.

Paul will travel with the Rockets to Oakland, California, for the game, coach Mike D'Antoni said, and will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston.

The defending champion Golden State Warriors are now one loss from elimination after choking away Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Rockets in Houston. Heading back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 while facing a 3-2 series deficit, the defending champions displayed an air of confidence that one would expect from arguably the greatest National Basketball Association team ever assembled.

It will be the second straight game Iguodala has missed after he bruised his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.

Unfortunately, Paul will miss Game 6 with a hamstring injury.

Others left hand-written notes on Japanese maples that have been planted to form a "Trees of Hope" trail through the city. People laid flowers and cards in St Ann's Square, which became a focal point for mourners after the attack .

Kerr also said he wasn't pleased with the Warriors' execution on offense for Game 4. He dribbled out past the left elbow on the 3-point line. Golden State then had a chance to tie or win the game after Trevor Ariza made just one of two free throws.

The Stephen Curry shimmy is a sight to behold. Durant in isolation is a matchup you're willing to exploit, but Golden State has relied on it much more than normal.

It's the first time they've had back-to-back defeats since the 2016 NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers and they're now in serious danger of seeing their three-year finals streak come to an end. It was Paul's third 3-pointer of the quarter.

If he can't, the Warriors will again be at the mercy of the Rockets and the presumptive NBA MVP, Harden.

Kerr is an exceptional coach when it comes to managing the responsibilities and personalities that come from having an exceptionally talented team - that's not easy to do - but his performance as a game manager over the last two games has been suspect.

Paul has averaged 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists during the playoffs for the Rockets, who had an NBA-best 65-17 regular-season record and ousted Minnesota and Utah in five games each in the opening rounds of the playoffs.
