Chris Paul out of Rockets lineup for Warriors decider

Klay Thompson

The Warriors caught a break they, frankly, didn't deserve when Chris Paul suffered a hamstring strain in the final minute of Houston's victory here in Game 5, which puts Golden State in an exceedingly strong position to win this game, despite it being on the road.

After the game, Curry told reporters coach Steve Kerr had some advice after his rocky start. The point guard remains a game-time decision going into the 7th and final game of their series with the Golden State Warriors.

"I feel like we're the best team in the world and the most fun team to watch when we're pushing that ball and getting defensive stops, making the simple play", said Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who scored a game-high 35 points while sinking nine 3-pointers.

Golden State shot 7 of 20 from the floor and 2 of 10 from 3-point range in the first quarter.

The Warriors are in a do-or-die battle to become the Western Conference Champions as they take on the Rockets in Houston. It can't be at the most crucial point of the game against a team that can end everything in a flash. After gutting through with a game-winning shot that helped the Los Angeles Clippers beat the San Antonio Spurs in their first-round series in the 2015 National Basketball Association playoffs then Paul missed the first two games of the Western Conference semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies with a strained left hamstring.

"He can get the same type of treatment", D'Antoni said.

Sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com have Golden State as a 6-point road favorite. Meanwhile, the Warriors came out cold on offense.

Of course, without a Game 7 win, this is all relatively meaningless.

The Western Conference Finals heads back to Toyota Center as the Rockets looking to wind up the series against Steph Curry and the Warriors, and claim their golden ticket to the 2018 NBA Finals. They've responded to adversity at every turn in this series, and there's no reason to think they can't do so again in Game 7. As a team, the Rockets shot just 40 percent from the field and 15 of 39 from the three-point line but there's no denying how much Chris Paul was missed from the lineup as the bench looked real thin with Gordon starting.
