Chris Paul: 'I Will Be Alright'

Rockets push defending champ Warriors to the brink

Chris Paul exited Houston's 98-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, and the Rockets announced Friday the All-Star point guard will miss Saturday's Game 6 with a hamstring strain. Despite pulling off a second straight win, this time on their home floor, a dark cloud loomed over the outcome due to Chris Paul sustaining a right hamstring injury in the final minutes of the game, leaving his status questionable for a potential series-clinching Game 6. If he's there (for Game 6), great. He said the soreness diminished significantly between Games 3 and 4. It's only right that we do it a different way to set a new chapter. Harden, who was zero for 11 on 3s, missed his last one with less than 30 seconds left, giving the Warriors the ball back. "The play was unfolding nicely, it just didn't turn out obviously".

In the event that CP3 is unable to suit up for Game 6 on Saturday night at Oracle Arena, head coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters that Eric Gordon, who had a team-high 24 points off the bench, will transition to the role of playmaker.

Paul finished with 20 points.

Golden State closed the second quarter with an 8-0 spurt and pulled even at the break after Durant kept them afloat with 18 first-half points.

After losing Game One 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. He's shot 46 percent from the field and 37 percent from three.

"We know what we're capable of, we know that we can win two games", Green said. Despite the Warriors feeling good about their chances moving forward, Kerr acknowledged this is a bit of uncharted territory.
