  • 'This Is My House': Steph Curry Rebuked by His Mom After Outburst in Game Three

"I've always wanted to be on a winning team", Gordon told the Houston Chronicle Friday, as the Rockets prepared to board a plane for Oakland, Calif., and the possibility of returning to Houston as National Basketball Association finalists. Gordon recovered the loose ball. He also committed six turnovers.

The only downside for Houston was a right hamstring injury to Paul that saw him limp off in the final minute.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni again opted for a short, seven-man rotation, and the supporting cast for Houston helped bolster its struggling leaders in the first half and maintained its poise in the second. They'll do whatever they can do. If he's there [for game six], great, good for him. "But if we've got a guy like Eric Gordon making shots and being aggressive, who cares?" Sparked by 24 points from rookie Jayson Tatum and 17 from Jaylen Brown, the Celtics looked the more lively and purposeful team.

"I remember the last game, I set a screen for CP and he hits me and I'm wide open for a 3, and James, same thing tonight".

"The forward said: "[We're] kind of pissed off.

The Rockets provided tickets for more than 300 Santa Fe High seniors, along with some staff and first responders, to attend the game and players wore a commemorative patch on their uniforms. After Kevin Durant signed with the Warriors in 2016, Golden State was slated to be a lock for the Finals as long as he stayed.

Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in the postseason. "But I think whoever can buckle down and get stops consecutively and create opportunities with their defense is going to win or have a chance at winning games. At the same time, we'll rally and do what's right", D'Antoni said. "I didn't see that". "The play was unfolding nicely, it just didn't turn out obviously".




A fan in Oracle Arena made a decision to heckle Chris Paul, but the nine-time All-Star had the flawless response for him.

Houston won despite James Harden missing all 11 of his three-point attempts while finishing with 19 points on 5-of-21 shooting.

The Warriors used another of their signature third quarters to take an 84-77 advantage going into the final 12 minutes, then maintained that dominant level this time down the stretch, unlike their last home game at roaring Oracle Arena when they blew it in Game 4 on Tuesday.

For the second straight game, Stephen Curry caught first in the third quarter. Can someone tell Kobe to do an episode on Kevin Durant before next game?

He shook his head at the fact neither team has broken 100 points in the last two games. However, probably bolstered by the home-crowd energy, the Cavaliers astounded the Boston Celtics' defence en route to a 126-85 win. The Warriors started the game on a 12-0 run and appeared like they were on their way to another blowout.

It's hard to deny that the Houston Rockets have already had a remarkable season, but there's always been a sense that their season would ultimately be judged on the outcome of one series. Timberlake is in town to perform at the Toyota Center, while we all know J.J. Watt plays for the Houston Texans. We know we let one slip away.
