Rockets' Chris Paul ruled out for Game 6 against Warriors

Paul's right leg will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston following Game 6.

Paul, who was not available for comment on Thursday, missed 24 games this season with a variety of injuries, including a hamstring. The Houston Rockets stands to gain a 3-2 lead in the series and inch one step closer to its first NBA Finals in 23 years.

Eric Gordon, the star of Game 5, will start in Paul's place Saturday night.

There was Paul on Thursday night, carrying the Houston Rockets in the third quarter, with an array of improbable shots, most notably a double-pump three-pointer as the shot clock expired.

"We'll see", D'Antoni said.

At his postgame news conference, Stephen Curry, who scored 22 points, was asked to explain how exactly it is that they are in a great position.

The injury occurred with around 50 seconds left in Game 5.

"I think we're excited about that opportunity to go home, to get ourselves back in the series, stay alive, obviously, like I said, then worry about a Game 7". The two of them had a blast at the Toyota Center. As a team, the Warriors shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 26 from the three-point line but they just kept shooting themselves in the foot with 18 turnovers which led to 18 points for the Rockets.

The Warriors have won two out of the last three National Basketball Association titles and are widely considered to be the best team in the league since the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls.

The Warriors will have a chance to tie the series and send it to Game 7 in Houston if they can land a win against the Rockets at home on Saturday. The reason for Paul's action was in response to Curry doing the same thing in the midst of a Game 3 blowout win for the Warriors.

"I feel great about where we are right now", Kerr said after Game 5, according to The Athletic. But we can't count on it. Injuries happen and we've just got to play with whoever is out there.

Rockets: Clint Capela had 12 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double this postseason.
