NBA Rockets lose star guard for Game 6

Draymond Green Guarantees Warriors the Win their Series Against the Rockets'Book It

The team said Paul will be re-evaluated after the Rockets return from Saturday's Western Conference matchup against the Warriors, with Houston leading the best-of-seven series 3-2 entering game six at Oakland, California. Paul has led the Rockets to two straight wins to help give them a 3-2 edge over the Warriors. They lost the pivotal Game 5, putting Houston in the driver's seat to advance to the NBA Finals.

Draymond Green all but guaranteed that Golden State would win Game 6 Saturday night and extend the series, telling ESPN, "We'll be back here for Game 7". Golden State is 11.5-point favorites after Paul's injury. Eventually, the specter of Curry's Warriors forced Paul's 2017 relocation to Houston too.

"We've been here before", Kerr said.

D'Antoni wouldn't speculate on Paul's availability if the Warriors force Game 7 on Monday night in Houston.

The Rockets guard deployed the troll move during the Rockets' 98-94 win Thursday at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

"Every facet of the game, he was controlling the tempo", James said after Friday morning's practice session in Cleveland, referring to Paul's Game 5 performance.

"He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", coach Steve Kerr said Thursday. 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. "We'll just continue to take it day-to-day".

After losing Game 1 of the series, the Rockets made the best of home-court advantage this time, thrilling a sellout crowd that included Justin Timberlake, Houston Texans star J.J. Watt and rapper Travis Scott.

Up 3-2 in their Western Conference Finals matchup against the reigning National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets are just one win away from the Finals. But trying to close out this Warriors team without Paul will be a monumental challenge for the Rockets.
