The Rockets managed to go 15-6 this season in games Paul missed when they had MVP front-runner Harden and blossoming center Clint Capela available.

The Rockets are one game away from reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since they won their second of back-to-back titles in 1995.

NBA Twitter always manages to go undefeated, and after Game 5 between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, that statement is as true as ever.

Golden State trails 3-2, but will host Houston on Saturday with tipoff set for 9 p.m. ET.

Paul had just hit a 3-pointer midway through the third quarter of Thursday night's Game 5, when he made the move. "So, we'll see what happens".

Curry couldn't help but appreciate Paul, though.

The club termed Iguodala as questionable for Game 6 after it lost for the second consecutive game Thursday with Iguodala sidelined due to a leg contusion.

It was the most he has scored in an elimination game and only three points shy of his playoff career high of 49. Continuing the series' freaky home/road differences, George Hill gave the Cavs an injection of playmaking.

"It will not change anything we do and how we do it", D'Antoni said, although he noted the rotation could expand to eight or nine players.

Should the Warriors win Saturday, Game 7 will be Monday back in Houston.

Coach Steve Kerr was asked about Iguodala's status Friday and said they are waiting on the OK from the team's head performance therapist, Chelsea Lane. We try to feed that off to him as well: "'Be happy, be ready; get this thing right, get this thing going and be back in no time'". He scored 20 points, including several key 3-pointers, in the Game 5 win.

I think it's probably a safe bet that when the Rockets are playing on their home floor again, that Timberlake and Watt will probably be in attendance.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul and Curry have been rivals for most of the 2010s.

Rockets: Clint Capela had 12 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double this postseason.

The Rockets believe they can absorb this loss and don't seem daunted by the setback, noting that they found ways to win in the regular season in many games where Paul sat out with injuries.
