The Houston Rockets beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 on Thursday night, securing a 3-2 series lead and pushing the Warriors to the brink of elimination.

Kerr said Iguodala, who sat out Tuesday's game with a sore left knee after banging knees with the Rockets' James Harden in the Warriors' blowout win in Game 3 on Sunday, is feeling better and making progress.

After combining for 3-for-13 shooting on threes in the first half, Thompson (4-for-5) and Curry (3-for-4) bombed in seven of nine from beyond the arc in the third quarter, during which the Warriors outscored the Rockets 33-16 to take a lead they never relinquished.

Should the Warriors lose both Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson at least in Game 5 this Thursday on the road, it's going to be a huge punch in the gut for the defending champions. Thompson had been listed as questionable leading up to the game because of a strained left knee. With Patrick McCaw (lumbar spine contusion) already out, Steve Kerr would probably have to give Nick Young - one of his more inconsistent players - more meaningful minutes.

Brandon Crawford hit a two-run homer, Brandon Belt drove in two runs and the Giants stopped a three-game slide.

"I thought our guys just hung in there, hung in there and found a way", added D'Antoni, whose Rockets shot just 37/2 percent from the floor.

After Stephen Curry's floater bounced off the rim, the Warriors were forced to foul Trevor Ariza. Houston committed 11 first-half turnovers, five early. We try to feed that off to him as well: "'Be happy, be ready; get this thing right, get this thing going and be back in no time'". I don't know how many times everybody's got to see it in the league, he's one of the best players to play the game.

Gordon has played a big role. "We've just got one chance".

The Warriors have plenty of experience performing in pressure-packed Game 7s and thrive in these conditions.

The Cavaliers, who have played the Warriors in each of the last three title series, trail the Celtics 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals. If he's out, the Rockets will have to rely on James Harden, who has struggled to find his shot in this series. These guys train so hard and they're here and they're competing, and you want everybody to be healthy, but just the reality is it usually doesn't work out that way. In the end, the All-Star accounted for 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a gutsy effort. I'm sure there are some shots he'd like to have back.

"Nothing", said Harden, who finished with 19 points on 5-of-21 shooting in Game 5. "We just have to keep playing our game".
