Twitter Went Wild Over Rockets-Warriors Game 5

26 May 2018

Paul has led the Rockets to two straight wins to help give them a 3-2 edge over the Warriors. Durant in isolation is a matchup you're willing to exploit, but Golden State has relied on it much more than normal. Well, they're looking pretty glaring now. "He'll be evaluated tomorrow", coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters, via ESPN. I think our leaders in the National Basketball Association understand that when an NFL player is kneeling, they were kneeling to protest police brutality, to protest racial inequality.

"The rest of it is just gutting it out, and finding a will, a way, and a want".

Houston has forced the Warriors into 34 turnovers combined and limited them to 19 total 3-pointers in the last two games. A sports writer then coined the term Hamptons 5.

Despite the loss and facing elimination, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he wasn't anxious.

So what could go wrong? And without someone like Andre Iguodala - who's missed the last two games due to injury but previous year * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/advanced/?sort=AST_TO&dir=-1&Season=2016-17&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&CF=MIN*GE*25" *led the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio - you could argue the Warriors might even be at a disadvantage from a ball-control standpoint.

"Anybody says to beat Golden State they talk about scoring 120, 130 points", Tucker said.

Casspi, on the other hand, isn't even on the postseason roster. As the pair made their way back down the court, Paul took the opportunity to have some fun at Curry's expense, staring the Warriors guard down and tossing Curry's signature "shimmy" right back at him. But what Casspi was supposed to be for the Warriors would be awfully useful right now.

The Rockets kept the Warriors under the 100-point mark for the first time this series in Game 4.

While everyone has been pitching in, the tone on defense, especially in these last two games, has been set by the aggressive play of P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza, and Clint Capela's presence at the rim.

The Rockets will update Paul's status after he gets more treatment Friday morning.

Curry's conditioning is still a work in progress after missing seven weeks with a knee injury. The Rockets' two key players - James Harden and Chris Paul - led the offensive attack for the ball club.

It's not like Houston hasn't had its own adversity to deal with. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 83.7 percent from the free throw line.

Last year's Western Conference Finals only went four games before eventual champ Golden State headed off to the finals against Cleveland, so a direct comparison is a little bit of a bad pass. Look, the Celtics from the top down, they are lunatics.

The Rockets are that matchup. Houston and Golden State are locked in a tight one but are still having fun out there.
