Rockets guard ruled out for Game 6 against Warriors

Despite losing Game 4 at home, the Golden State Warriors are ...

Things are getting personal in the Western Conference Finals, and Chris Paul is in the middle of it.

With Paul suffering a hamstring strain at the end of Game 5 and already being ruled out of Game 6, all eyes are pointed at the likely 2018 MVP in Harden to lead Houston after a pair of lackluster games.

The only downside for Houston was an apparent hamstring injury to Paul that saw him limp off in the final minute. This is a potentially devastating outcome for both the Rockets and for Paul, who has never made it this far in the postseason and has played an enormous role in giving his team the series lead.

"His spirits aren't great", D'Antoni said.

We'll likely hear soon on Paul's status for Game 6 and beyond. However, with the game on the line, Paul drove the lane and pulled up for a floater. Just like Cleveland in the East, a run of three straight trips to the championship round is on the verge of ending. We got everything we needed. He finished with 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists, making several impossible looking shots over the outstretched arms of Warriors defenders in the second half. In their two victories, the Warriors averaged just 8.5 miscues. When you switch everything, it makes ball movement more hard, and it makes player movement more hard.

Houston won Game 5 despite James Harden missing all 11 of his 3-point attempts while finishing with 19 points on 5-of-21 shooting. "Phil Jackson said 'Who's open?' He said, 'John Paxson'".

Thompson strained his left knee in Game 4 on Tuesday when he tumbled to the floor on a drive to the basket in the second quarter.

Paul exited Houston's 98-94 Game 5 win over the Golden State Warriors in the final minute of Thursday's contest and received extensive postgame treatment, leaving the Toyota Center around midnight. Thompson also went scoreless in the first quarter and did not make a field goal until converting on a layup with 7:38 left in the second quarter.
