Could another injury in game 5 derail the Rockets chance at the NBA Finals? Last year, Chris Paul injured his groin during game 5, grounding the Rockets chances of dethroning Golden State. This year, at the end of Game 5, it wasn’t a Rocket who was injured, it was Kevin Durant. The best player in the NBA, whose injury might have woken up the best team in the NBA.
With the series headed back to clutch city, expect game 6 to be a gritty dogfight, and an offensive storm. The Beard and CP3 better perform at a level well beyond their norm, guarding the three. The Splash Brothers are back, with Steph reverting back to his form when he was the leagues MVP.
