I agree on Harden... he can wash that all away in Game 6 if Paul is out. Harden's defense has definitely been solid... not perfect, but solid.

Curry said Paul's shimmy was well deserved after that shot.

Interesting, both of last year's finalists now have their backs against the wall, down 2-3 and needing to win two in a row.

Itís just odd to me that he had arguably one of his worst offensive nights in this critical game

But check this out. If Eric Gordon can step up Incase cp3 is hurt I do need him to use his full skill set and not live at the three point line!

Both teams will win game 6 at home to force a game 7, but think the Warriors have a better chance to win on the road in Houston does than Cleveland has at winning in Boston.

Just saw injured Rockets guard Chris Paul jump into a Maybach outside the Toyota Center and he said: “I will be all right.” I next asked about Game 6, Paul said: “Oh yeah,” before being whisked away.

Good to see the NBA is regaining the thing that made it great, superstars putting on the moves against tough D.
There is nothing more boring than an open 3.

And now we are seeing why these Warriors would fall flat on their faces if they had to play the Bad Boy Pistons or MJ Bulls or Ewing Knicks in a 7 game series.
Very easy to take great shooters out of their rhythm when mental and physical pressure converges in the playoffs.
And Houston aren't even physical compared to the elites of previous eras.

You can say that again. Harden plays some dumbed down, iso, streetball jack up the 3 or drive for an out of control layup basketball. No wonder the thunder were cursed to never win a ring with him and Westbrook ball hogging for points. CP3 is an excellent floor general and Gordon has performed out of this world.

CP3 has sealed his fate as an elite player. Harden? He’s lucky he has CP3.

Rockets better hope Andre is not back and that CP3 is healthy for next game, regardless we all know GSW will likely win game 6. They have the 3 greatest modern shooters on one team.
