Klay Thompson active, Andre Iguodala out for Game 5

Klay Thompson active, Andre Iguodala out for Game 5

After an incredible effort, the Houston Rockets are one game away from the NBA Finals.

"I feel like we're the best team in the world and most fun team in the world to watch when we're pushing that ball, getting defensive stops and making plays", he said. "But great opportunity for other guys and we have plenty to choose from and we'll be ready".

"I think Klay may have been in the far right corner so we had the floor spread".

Chris Paul, James Harden and the Rockets took down the Warriors 98-94 to go up 3-2 in the Western Conference Finals.

The Rockets will have a chance to knock off the Warriors for good, but Paul's health remains a huge question mark heading into Game 6 on Saturday. "He wanted to be out there, and for sure he's anxious". They'll also need to temper the indeterminable impact of Green for the Warriors, who has spent a lot of time facilitating for Golden State this postseason, and do what the Pelicans couldn't and find a solution for Durant.

"That's not our focus", Green said. "Make sure I can go", Iguoadala told ESPN before Thursday's loss.

Speaking to reporters about the nature of the injury, the nine-time All-Star said he had been receiving round-the-clock care to manage the complaint.

Celtics open as slight betting favorites vs Cavs in Game 7
Love missed the majority of Cleveland's 2015 run to the Finals after separating his shoulder in the first round against Boston. Boston fans chanted "Celts in six!" near the end of Wednesday's game. "The sky's the limit" for Tatum, Brown said.

"I thought Klay was incredible tonight, not just the 35 points and the nine 3s but his defense", Kerr said. We know we let one slip away. PLAYOFFS POST GAME: Boston Celtics #2 (55-27) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (50-32) #4 8:30 p.m., TD Garden, Boston, MA.

LeBron James could be playing his last game ever as a Cavalier on Friday, with the Celtics holding a 3-2 series lead.

The Warriors opened the game with a 12-0 run, but the Rockets, with their backs to the wall, fought back to take a 53-46 half time lead.

The Rockets were clinging to a one-point lead with about seven minutes left when Durant fouled Gordon on a 3-point attempt, losing one of his shoes in the process. With Paul, Harden and Ariza, they have three guys that can shoot, alongside Paul's facilitation of the offense. Houston struggled to keep pace throughout the game, shooting just 40 per cent from the field and committing 19 turnovers. And yet, the Rockets hold a 3-2 advantage on the champs thanks in large part to the play of point guard Chris Paul. They weren't disrespecting the flag or the military, but our president decided to make it about that. But the victory came with a cost, as Paul had to leave the game in the final minute with a right hamstring injury.

The Rockets honored victims and survivors of the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School on May 18 before the game. The school's choir sang the national anthem before the contest.

"It will not change anything that we do or how we do it", D'Antoni said.

"We all should be exhausted of gestures and moments of silence", D'Antoni said.
