The Rockets say Paul's strained right hamstring will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston following Game 6. Harden, who was 0 for 11 on 3s, missed his last one with less than 30 seconds left, giving the Warriors the ball back.

It's Houston's second straight win in the series after snapping Golden State's National Basketball Association playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Tuesday night.

Green was asked what was supposed to happen on the play. "I lost the ball. not much more to it than that". When Thompson scored through a foul on the first possession of the second half, the Warriors captured their first lead of the game at 47-45.

It will be the second straight game Iguodala has missed after he bruised his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.

Game 5 is Thursday night at Houston.


With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line.

To do that they'll need their superstars to step up again, with the pressure on James Harden and Chris Paul to deliver after their big performances in Game 3 spurred Houston to the road victory that tied the best-of-seven series at 2-2. Gordon made all three free throws to start a 7-2 spurt that extended the lead to 88-82 midway through the quarter.

However, the final play went awry, ending with a trapped Klay Thompson throwing up a desperation shot from the baseline as the final second ticked away. "We'll just continue to take it day to day.". "Scored 12 points. Tried to buy a little bit of rest for our guys, but, yeah, they just outplayed us in the fourth and they earned it".

Gordon tallied a team-high 24 points off the bench.

Rockets: Clint Capela had 12 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double this post-season. "So I saw Draymond trying to call it, and I was hoping they'd give it to us, but we didn't get it", said the two-time champion coach.
