Warriors' Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala are questionable for Game 5 against Rockets

LeBron on Chris Paul shimmy'I was laughing smiling like everybody else

How To Watch Houston Rockets vs. The point guard has been diagnosed with a hamstring strain and is listed as day to day.

The Golden State Warriors insisted they weren't anxious Thursday night when they lost Game 5 to the Houston Rockets and were pushed to the brink of elimination. 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.

Numerous current Warriors roster have been in this position before as they overturned a 3-1 deficit against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 conference finals when Kevin Durant was in the opposing team. Durant and Curry both made just one field goal in the fourth quarter of Game 4, shooting a combined two-of-13 as the Warriors blew a sizeable lead.

Curry added that he was excited to go back home for Game 6.

However, despite losing, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said: "I feel great about where we are right now". 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.

Golden State remains a small favorite, minus-130, to win the series. Paul hit the shot in the third quarter with the shot clock running out.

Twitter users ecstatic about Alabama, Texas scheduling home-and-home series
Texas owns a 7-1-1 record against Alabama. "This will certainly be a great opportunity for our program and our fans". The last time the two teams faced off was in 2010 at the National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl.

The Stephen Curry shimmy is a sight to behold.

The Rockets are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. That's when Eric Gordon enters the game and Tucker plays the '5'. Unfortunately, they may need to get there without Chris Paul.

Guard Klay Thompson is battling a strained left knee, but Kerr said he expects Thompson to play tonight.

A switchable forward defensively capable of stretching the floor from three, Casspi would have been exactly the kind of player the Warriors could use in a matchup against the Rockets.

If he can't, the Warriors will again be at the mercy of the Rockets and the presumptive NBA MVP, Harden.

Golden State, whose streak of 16 straight home playoff wins was halted by the Rockets on Tuesday, will try to fend off elimination when they host Game 6 on Saturday.
