The Warriors opened as a 10.5-point favorite for Game 6 at several sportsbooks. Paul hit the shot in the third quarter with the shot clock running out.

The lack of complementary scoring has plummeted recently.

The Rockets honored victims and survivors of the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School on May 18 before the game.

The Rockets are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games.

Could the lack of offensive movement, and production, also be a result of fatigue? Kerr could occasionally platoon his bench players for spurts without suffering a dramatic drop-off in production.

According to Associated Press' Tim Reynolds, Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni says CP3 is "worried" about his injury. That switching defense isn't as effective going against an isolation-heavy team like the Houston Rockets. He's practically won us the past two games. For the postseason, Thompson is averaging 19.4 points which is a tick down from his regular season average of 20.0.


That carelessness has been exposed this series. Nor did it help the Warriors committed 16 turnovers, granted the Rockets multiple trips to the free-throw line (27-of-32) and allowed the Rockets to take more 3-point attempts (43-30).

At times since Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors, there's been talk that the team is so loaded that it undermines the notion of competitive balance in the National Basketball Association.

Unfortunately, Paul will miss Game 6 with a hamstring injury. Once again, the Warriors had a chance to win it in the final seconds, but Draymond Green bobbled a pass from Curry and turned the ball over.

Houston got a 95-92 win in Game Four on Tuesday to even the series at 2-2 heading in Thursday's game.

Iguodala has a left lateral leg contusion and missed Game 4 due to knee soreness.

What is so perplexing is that Golden State has three of the world's best, most clutch shot-makers. By relying on isolation and threes in the fourth quarter, they only scored 12 points and had a miserable 14 assists for the entire match.
