What a dumb last possession by GSW.. Why in the world would Draymond ever even touch the ball in that situation? Never mind being the one to dribble into the frontcourt and asked to make a play with 5 seconds left.

Steph or Durant clearly should have been the one to make a play right there, or even klay. Idk if it was drawn up like that by Kerr or if that was steph's decision, but jeez that was dumb. And Draymond looked like a WR in the NFL trying to run before securing the ball. Just ugly
everyone got so sensitive after 9-11... thanks alot bin laden

Chris Paul.
It looked a lot like Brown's injury.

But CP3 is 33 not 21, I think he's going to be out for a while sadly. Which is just gut wrenching for him and the Rockets.

If he's out the chances GSW win both game 6 and 7 are far higher, I'd favor them to do so. If they do make the Finals it could make the matchup CLE or BOS a pretty even.

The play was for Steph.

If the defense was set Draymond was going to go into a DHO/pick for Steph to get a clean look at a shot. Because it wasn't the read was for Draymond to drive and either dunk it or kick it to a shooter if anyone helps.

Alabama wins a championship = Lebron James wins one. Quite an eerie thought coming together as these situations unfolding.

Villanova also won the basketball title in 15 when the Cavs won and just happened to cut down the nets this year.

ESPN reporting that Rockets have announced Paul will miss Game 6 with a hamstring strain.  :(

Chris Paul had been Houston's best player that series.

I gotta be honest, I just find myself not trusting Harden in pivotal moments even if he's objectively one of the league's best four or five players.

Guess Rockets trying to rest him for a game 7. Don't think they win another game in the series now

He knew he was going to be out once it happened. You could see it in his face, wasn't happy about the win just devastated he wouldn't be able to play in the game to clinch the Finals.

I don't think he's playing again this postseason unless its late in the Finals.

This will ultimately be the excuse of the Rockets should they lose this series.
Puts a big asterisk on the Warriors if they advance to the Finals...but imagine the pandamonium if they still happen to pull it off... Chances of that happening though is very slim.. They need Paul in a very big way unlike us we are basically surviving despite the absence of Kyrie and Hayward.

If GS does advance.. They still look the very vulnerable this yr.. They look discombobulated against the Rockets.. Imagine facing the daunted Celtic defense.

Me either...IF the Rockets could somehow steal this series...and Boston can finish the deal...Cs would have a very nice path to 18

Warriors are heavy favorites now, but if the Rockets make an inordinate amount of threes in Game 7, who knows... Harden has missed 20 straight threes lol
