One of the most highly anticipated games of the NBA Western Conference Finals. The Houston Rockets have won game 5 and look to close out on the next game.
Klay Thompson was listed as questionable up until tip off and played well with 23 points on 57% shooting from the field. NBA fans assumed Nick Young who earned a (DNP) and Shaun Livingston would consume his minutes prior to him being announced ready to play.
It would appear as the Rockets controlled the tempo for majority of the first half up until the final minutes before Golden State was able to tie the score 45-45 with Harden committing 4 turnovers.
Ultimately it was Eric Gordon’s 3pt shot in the 4th that closed the game and put the Rockets up 95-91. The Warriors weren’t able to get back into the game leading to their loss.
Game 6 will be played on Saturday, May 26th 9:00 PM ET.
