Rockets' Chris Paul will miss Game 6 with hamstring injury

The Houston Rockets guard as been ruled out for Game 6 Saturday (May 26) against the Golden State Warriors with a right hamstring injury suffered during Thursday's Game 5 win.

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 Tuesday night.

On Friday, the Rockets announced that Paul will miss Game 6.

"Chelsea just needs to tell me that he can play", Kerr said. "Our guys have the ultimate confidence that we can get it done this time, too".

"We take it game by game, position by position, try to compete our butts off and give ourselves the best chance". It is a journey that has attracted a lot of attention - last night's Game 5 pulled in a 7.0 in metered market ratings for TNT.

The 2018 NBA Playoffs have been a odd one as, despite a run where it seemed like every game was a blowout, ratings have been shooting up steadily. "We don't want to come and be pouting around".

"His spirits aren't great", coach Mike D'Antoni said after the game.

James Harden was actually spotted playing lock down defense, or the closest thing to it, in Thursday's 98-94 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 5.

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

Despite his worries about the injury in the midst of the most important playoff series of his career, Paul still seems confident he will take the floor Saturday night to help the Rockets take down the loaded Warriors squad. Durant specifically is averaging just under four assists per contest in the Warriors' two victories this series, but is averaging only a single dime in Golden State's three losses. Though the Warriors found the 22-year-old McCaw battling inconsistency with his shooting, they liked his defensive versatility and team-first mindset.

The Rockets have no similarly poor shooter - they led the league in points per possession during the regular season.
