ONE WIN AWAY

Rockets get huge Game 5 win, possibly lose CP3 to hamstring injury

James Harden couldn't buy a basket. Chris Paul missed 13 of his 19 shots. Eric Gordon struggled hard until the second half. So how in the world did the Rockets pull out another gut-check win over the NBA's juggernaut? Defense. The Rockets cranked up the defensive pressure Thursday night, pulling out a gutsy 98-94 win over the Warriors to give Houston a 3-2 series lead. The Rockets are now just one win away from their first NBA Finals appearance since 1995. The problem? Chris Paul left the game with 22 seconds left to a hamstring injury -- more details from the team will be available Friday. MK Bower joins Dave Hardisty on the post-game podcast to talk about the crazy Game 5 win and the impact of possibly losing CP3.
