Chris Paul Out Game 6 With Right Hamstring Strain

"We'll see what happens".

2013: Clippers co-star Blake Griffin sustained an ankle injury ahead of Game 5 in their first-round tilt against the Memphis Grizzlies, and re-aggravated it in Game 5 - a game that ultimately gave the Grizzlies a 3-2 series lead it would never relinquish.

Chris Paul of the Houston Rockets recorded 20 points, 6 assists, and 7 rebounds. As far as the point guard's status for Game 6 goes, "We'll see".

The team will reevaluate him when the Rockets return from their Game 6 road trip to Golden State, where they can clinch the series. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and eventually Kevin Durant have appeared to have some ups and downs, but for the most part, the group has always managed to stay the course en route to two titles in three years.

Game 6 is Saturday at Oracle Arena. If the Warriors force a Game 7, it will be held Monday night in Houston.

It's Houston's second straight win in the series after snapping Golden State's National Basketball Association playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Wednesday.

With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line.

Paul arguably has been the Rockets' best player against the Warriors in the conference finals. They found themselves down 2-1 before winning three straight to meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals.

Replacing Paul's point production and defensive work will require greater effort from Rockets standouts Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela.

The Rockets honored the 10 people killed in last week's school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, before the game, with the school's choir singing the national anthem and team owner Tilman Fertitta wearing a "Santa Fe Strong" T-shirt, before Houston scored the game's first six points in a first half where the team led by as many as 11.
