The high-octane Rockets are shutting down the defending champion Warriors with the kind of defense not seen in Houston since Hakeem Olajuwon.
Chris Paul had to watch the final 22.4 seconds of Thursday’s thrilling Game 5 win due to an apparent right hamstring injury suffered on a floater.
One more win and the Rockets are going to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995. One more loss and the Warriors are going home.
