  • Andre Iguodala’s injury and the small-ball Rockets have put the Warriors’ center-heavy roster in the crosshairs

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul and Curry have been rivals for most of the 2010s. "I lost the ball. not much more to it than that".

The Houston Rockets edged the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, 98-94, on Thursday, May 24, to move within one win of reaching the NBA Finals.

"I will be all right", Paul told Marc J. Spears of ESPN's The Undefeated.

Harden scoffed at a reporter who questioned him about his struggles from long range in the last two games, where he's gone a combined 3 for 22.

Paul had been having a bad game up until the shot in the third quarter.


With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line. However, Curry missed a runner off the glass with Golden State trailing by one point down the stretch.

The Cavaliers, who have played the Warriors in each of the last three finals, trail the Celtics 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals. "He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", Kerr said. "We just have to continue what we're doing". Golden State had 18 turnovers.

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. Houston's stingy defense helped the Rockets come out on top on a night when Harden, the MVP front-runner, was 0 for 11 on 3-pointers. It's a sight the Houston Rockets are exhausted of seeing.

The Warriors know that they need to play better to win on the road.
