Rockets lose ailing Chris Paul, vow to dig in for Game 6

He limped noticeably during the next two possessions and checked out of the game after briefly consulting with Rockets athletic trainer Keith Jones during a timeout with 22.4 seconds remaining. "They'll do whatever they can do". We don't have no insane like superstars on this group right now, but we make it work because we play hard and we play together and we stay together.

All-star point guard Chris Paul was forced to leave in the last minute of Game 5 after appearing to suffer a right hamstring injury while taking a shot.

"I hope he's healthy", Trevor Ariza said Thursday night, before the Rockets had ruled Paul out. I just think he wants to go out there and hoop, and he doesn't worry about much else. A fourth chapter of the Golden State-Cleveland rivalry is in serious jeopardy as both squads stare at 3-2 deficits in their respective series, with neither having home-court advantage.

"That's not our focus", Green said.

"We were great in the regular season on the road", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, per Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today. It requires National Football League players to stand if they are on the field during the performance - or else be subject to a fine.

Chris Paul's grit and veteran leadership have pushed the Golden State Warriors to the brink of elimination.

Game 6 is Saturday night in Oakland; a Game 7, if necessary, would be Monday night back in Houston. "I feel like our guys feed off of them and it really just drives us as a group". And, you know, we as a team, we had a tough shooting night.

One game. victor moves on to the NBA Finals, loser can book early tee times starting Monday. The Celtics now lead the Cavaliers 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals. "But I think whoever can buckle down and get stops consecutively and create opportunities with their defense is going to win or have a chance at winning games". "It won't go down as a classic, but it should go down as a hard-fought win".

Kevin Durant changed things as he scored 11, with Houston leading 23-17 going into the second quarter. They held Boston to an opponent post-season low 86 points on 39 per cent shooting, including 27 per cent from three-point range. What he did was remarkable when we were kind of teetering. He made just one of two free throws, however, keeping the Warriors within striking distance.

"We haven't been in this position it's a chapter we need to figure out and finish the story", Stephen Curry said.

The Rockets honored victims and survivors of the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School, where a teenage gunman killed 10 people and injured 13 others on May 18. I love the way this team responds when our backs are against the wall. The school's choir sang the national anthem before the contest. "He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", Kerr said.

"It's just the shots [are] not falling, and a lot of it has to do with how hard everybody is playing", D'Antoni said.
