LeBron’s Reaction to Chris Paul’s Game 5 Shimmy on Stephen Curry

Even Stephen Curry enjoyed Chris Paul mocking his shimmy

The Golden State Warriors insisted they weren't anxious Thursday night when they lost Game 5 to the Houston Rockets and were pushed to the brink of elimination.

Numerous current Warriors roster have been in this position before as they overturned a 3-1 deficit against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 conference finals when Kevin Durant was in the opposing team.

"Obviously you saw him limp off, and he's a tough guy", D'Antoni said.

Paul is averaging 21.1 points per game during the playoffs.

The Warriors opened as a 10.5-point favorite for Game 6 at several sportsbooks.

Houston Rockets star guard Chris Paul will miss the team's crucial National Basketball Association playoff game against defending champion Golden State on Saturday, May 26 (Sunday, May 27 in Manila) due to a strained right hamstring, the Rockets announced Friday.

"The Houston Rockets tweeted: "@CP3 will miss Saturday's game at Golden State with a right hamstring strain.


Houston point guard Chris Paul scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half as the Western Conference heavyweights went toe-to-toe.

"It's obviously not something we wanted", D'Antoni said before Friday's practice. Both Games 4 and 5 could have gone either way.

The Warriors know that they need to play better to win on the road.

It came with significant cost, however, as point guard Chris Paul suffered a right hamstring injury in the final minute. Leonard played in only nine games last season due to a nagging quad injury as rumors surfaced of a growing rift between the two-time All-Star and the championship organization coached by Gregg Popovich. "We'll just continue to take it day-to-day".

Durant has struggled in the fourth quarter the past two games, combining for only one field goal. "Injuries happen and we've just got to play with whoever is out there". And he was scoring, but we weren't getting anything going.

In the locker room, Curry and Draymond Green were discussing the vibe of the series and agreed that it reminded them of the series with the Memphis Grizzlies from three years ago.
