Houston overcomes Harden's off night to push the champs to the brink

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry reacts after getting called for a foul against the Houston Rockets during the second half in Game 5 of the NBA basketball playoffs Western Conference finals in Houston

It is nearly impossible to know where we are at in the 2018 Western Conference Finals. Houston needs to win only one more game in this series (with two chances to do it, one at home) and even without their star guard, the Rockets remain more than capable of fulfilling that requirement. Turnovers have always been a vulnerability for the Warriors, and in Game 5, they racked up 16 of them.

"I feel great about where we are right now", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters after Golden State's 98-94 loss Thursday night.

The Warriors juxtaposed an electric, 34-point fourth quarter in Game 4 with a fruitless, 12-point fourth quarter.

Here are all the Game 5 details you need in order to catch the Rockets vs Warriors online or on TV tonight. Draymond Green said Golden State "figured something out" on the offensive end. He started 30 games this season while Paul and James Harden dealt with injuries.

If there has been one consistent knock on this Warriors team throughout recent years, it is their looseness with the ball.

Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in the postseason.

Curry couldn't help but appreciate Paul, though. They deserve all of the credit for that. Durant should heed Kerr's advice on that topic since it's an all-around performance needed from KD for the Warriors to give the Rockets everything they need to extend this series.

Curry's conditioning is still a work in progress after missing seven weeks with a knee injury.

"Both teams are playing their guys heavy minutes so shots will fall or not", James Harden said.

Durant and Curry are taking more than half of Golden State's shots, as opposed to 41 percent during the regular season.

It's not like Houston hasn't had its own adversity to deal with.

Golden State still is favored to win this series, and should go on to win a second straight title. Golden State had one of the best offenses in National Basketball Association history this season, but over the last two contests, they've failed to average a point per possession. However, Curry missed a runner off the glass with Golden State trailing by one point down the stretch.
