Chris Paul exits Rockets' win with apparent hamstring injury

Chris Paul exits Rockets' win with apparent hamstring injury

James Harden's defense is a huge bellwether in this series. Both are ball dominant.

Paul did not speak to the media following the game, but received treatment. Despite all those differences, Paul and Harden immediately found a way to coexist. Gerald Green led all players in plus/minus with a plus-14 in just under 12 minutes. Thompson and Curry combined for 21 of the Warriors' 33 points in the third quarter - and did all of the damage from deep, going 7-of-9 from 3-point range in the frame. However, after being overwhelmed by the third quarter flurry, the Rockets rebounded to win 95-92, tie the series 2-2 and break Golden States' run of sixteen straight home playoff wins. Minus Uncle Drew, the Celtics are extra-reliant on youngsters and guys who would normally be role players-two player types that don't typically travel well. Now the Warriors head home, looking to send the series back to Houston for Game 7 on Monday.

Even more, they'd have to do it at the Oracle Arena - a place the Warriors have gone 7-1 in throughout these playoffs.

A big riddle continues tonight, with neither team able to win on the other's floor. "That didn't work. You're not backing him down". Up 3-1 against the feisty Jazz, Paul acknowledged that those kinds of leads haven't been kind to him in the past. Curry had 17 points on 6-10 shooting (5-8 from three) in the period.

Stephen Curry added 29 points and five 3s on a night Harden dazzled for long stretches with 32 points, nine assists and seven rebounds while backcourt mate Chris Paul sat out sidelined by a strained right hamstring. He helped steady his teammates when they faced double-digit deficits in the first and fourth.




The Houston Rockets, this high-octane team that has been known exclusively for its offensive exploits these past few seasons, are derailing the defending champion Golden State Warriors with the kind of defense they haven't seen in these parts since Hakeem Olajuwon was roaming the paint. That sounds absurd to some people, but life is more so about putting yourself in a position to succeed than actually expecting to succeed in the face of conspiring forces.

The hosts began to pull ahead in the final quarter when Chris Paul dunked from distance. That should count for something! "Definitely a missed opportunity, but we have another opportunity tomorrow to turn the series back, and it's an exciting time for us to see what that's about". It's a sight the Houston Rockets are exhausted of seeing.

Paul made the right decision to sign in Houston.

Boston needs another aggressive first quarter from Brown (he's done that most of the series).

Golden State coach Steve Kerr said of the late play that resulted in a Green giveaway, "I think Draymond saw an open lane to the basket, but he knew the time was winding down a little bit". Paul may not win a championship this year.
