NBA Playoffs 2018: Watch Warriors vs

Game 5 was a barnburner between the top two teams in the Western Conference this year, and was the closest game we've had these Conference Finals, both in the East and West.

James Harden contributed to the cause for Houston with 14 points on only 5-of-21 shooting, while Kevin Durant led the way for Golden State with a game-high 29 points in a losing effort.

The Rockets faithful would have been very anxious after the Warriors blew them out by 41 points in Game 3, but they've reeled off two impressive wins on the back of some stellar defense and are now just one win away from an NBA Finals berth.

Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals tips off on at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 31.

Paul had just hit a 3-pointer midway through the third quarter of Thursday night's Game 5, when he made the move. The nine-time All-Star finished with 20 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three steals, going deep into his bag of tricks during the fourth quarter to grind out Houston's second consecutive ugly victory. "He wanted to be out there, and for sure he's anxious. we'll see tomorrow how it goes". "But we can't count on it", Kerr said. I remember asking because I told KD, I said: "I hope Chris Paul can play [in Game 6], I really feel like he deserves a good series".

All of this can still be a moot point as the Rockets remain capable of winning at least one of the two remaining games, including a Game 7 in Houston.

While Kerr said "it would be great" to have Iguodala back for Game 6, he added the Warriors, who face elimination in Game 6, can't count on him being on the court. The Warriors opened as 10.5-point favorites, which shifted to 12 when Paul's absence became official.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul and Curry have been rivals for most of the 2010s.

"We take it game by game, position by position, try to compete our butts off and give ourselves the best chance". Now he and the Warriors are just waiting on the team's head performance therapist Chelsea Lane to clear Iguodala.
