"We have a chance to tie the series at home".

"I feel great about where we are right now", Kerr said after Game 5, according to The Athletic.

When told by ESPN that these Rockets are not the Grizzlies, Green responded assertively: "We'll be back here for Game 7".

When Paul strolled into practice Friday morning after the game and after the night talking with Harden, he was smiling and laughing.

Should the Warriors win Saturday, Game 7 will be Monday back in Houston. "Not all is lost". 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. It's a major blow for a team which is looking to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in more than two decades.

"Chris is a tough loss. but we always find ways to win", Gordon said.

Warriors' Steve Kerr calls National Football League 'idiotic' for anthem policy
Kerr says that he takes pride in the National Basketball Association being more socially conscious than the NFL . I think we were at a better place in terms of what was happening in the world.

D'Antoni said "without a doubt" the team will be able to handle the challenge of playing Game 6 without CP3. "They're looking forward to it".

Things are different now, though, with Houston stealing Game 4 on the road and then holding serve in Game 5 behind Paul and a gritty fourth quarter from James Harden. He was seeking revenge, for those years of aggravating defeats and for Curry's showy celebrations during these Western Conference finals. "There is pressure on everybody". Should the Rockets try to play Paul under reduced minutes? He couldn't even get up to get back on defense in the crucial final moments and limped around until being taken out seconds later. We want to see your fan photos and videos!

Game 6 is on Friday and will air at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.

Golden State would go on to lose the game in heartbreaking fashion, 98-94.

"He's a great player", Kerr said. We got everything we needed. His shortest absence due to a hamstring injury was two games during the 2015 West semifinals against the Rockets, when he played for the LA Clippers.

"It's something we talked about building up all year", Houston's P.J. Tucker said.
