Chris Paul Ruled out of Game 6 vs. Warriors with Hamstring Injury

Chris Paul Ruled out of Game 6 vs. Warriors with Hamstring Injury

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.

"I think we're excited about that opportunity to go home, to get ourselves back in the series, stay alive, obviously, like I said, then worry about a Game 7".

Houston managed to seal the win in his absence down the stretch but there is a real doubt about his chances of playing in Saturday night's Game 6. Take, for instance, the well-documented blow up Green had with Steve Kerr during a game against Oklahoma City in 2016.

Paul finished with 20 points.

In 15 games this postseason, the 33-year-old veteran is averaging 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.0 steals.




Harden scoffed at a reporter who questioned him about his struggles from long range in the last two games, where he's gone a combined 3 for 22. When Thompson scored through a foul on the first possession of the second half, the Warriors captured their first lead of the game at 47-45.

The team said Paul will be re-evaluated after the Rockets return from Saturday's Western Conference matchup against the Warriors, with Houston leading the best-of-seven series 3-2 entering game six at Oakland, California. "We'll just continue to take it day to day.".

The Warriors have won two out of the last three National Basketball Association titles and are widely considered to be the best team in the league since the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls.

"We wanted to come out and give them light, put smiles on their faces (and) clear their minds a little bit", Harden said.
