Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala questionable for Warriors-Rockets Game 5

Golden State Warriors on brink of NBA elimination with loss to Houston Rockets

Houston got a 95-92 win in Game 4 on Tuesday to even the series at 2-2 heading in Thursday's game. It's a sight the Houston Rockets are exhausted of seeing.

Gordon has played a big role. Chris Paul led the Rockets with 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists, but injured his leg late in the fourth quarter, forcing him to miss Houston's final defensive possession. The Warriors, on the other hand, are desperately trying to avoid going down a game and having to deal with a potential Game 7 in Houston. The Warriors are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 4-17 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 1 days rest.

In Game 5, we saw a total shift in bench deployment - David West played almost a full quarter and Quinn Cook was on the floor in crunch time - as well as a continuation of the Warriors' offensive woes, which unmistakenly manifested themselves in the fourth quarter of the team's second straight loss. Asked specifically about Game 6 on Saturday, Paul said, "Oh, yeah". But coach Steve Kerr says that Thompson will play. On that night, James Harden led the way for Houston with 30 points.

Golden State's stars have been uncharacteristically bad in crunch time.

In a frantic final minute of play, the Rockets showcased their tremendous defence to deny Golden State an opportunity to steal the win.

Thompson made a 3-pointer after that and then officials reviewed Paul's first basket of the quarter and ruled he got it off after the shot clock expired, leaving the Warriors ahead 80-79.

For all the emphasis on Harden's brand of iso ball in the series, Kevin Durant's desire to work one-on-one was among the more pronounced features of the Warriors' offense Thursday night.

Chris Paul will miss the game that could put his team in the NBA Finals.

Paul exited Houston's 98-94 Game 5 win on Thursday in the final minute and received extensive postgame treatment, leaving the Toyota Center around midnight.

The Rockets will once again be looking to disrupt the Warriors' rhythm tonight.

The Warriors are the toughest team the Rockets will face in the postseason.
