Team-invisible just copped another loss to the Houston Rockets despite an ordinary shooting night from James Harden (going 5-of-21 from the field and missing all 11 of his three-point attempts).
The 98-94 win was soured by a late suspected-hamstring injury to Houston barometer Chris Paul. CP3 went down in the fourth quarter.
“He’ll be evaluated tomorrow. We’ll be all right … ” said Rocket’s coach Mike D’Antoni after the win. “They’ll do whatever they can do. If he’s there (for Game 6), great, good for him… His spirits aren’t great. He wanted to be out there. That’s normal.”
Paul went for 20 points, 7 rebounds and 6 wins. Gordon again produced heat off the bench, going off for 24 points.
The series now shifts back to Oakland, where the Warriors will hope to level the series 3-3. For the Rockets, a win would put them back in the NBA finals for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 1994-95.
Put your enemies on the brink of elimination with the basketball beer pong table.
