  • LeBron James Chris Paul

That is his area of tactical expertise, after all. He played an instrumental role in the Game 3 126-85 win by Golden State as he acccounted for 10 points, three assists, three rebounds and three steals. If he isn't available the Rockets chances of winning the series would nearly certainly hit a tailspin. However, with the game on the line, Paul drove the lane and pulled up for a floater.

"Well, there are things I tell you guys here, and there are things I tell my team that are private", Kerr said Friday.

TNT's Reggie Miller and Chris Webber spoke more on the message Kerr was trying to deliver to Durant. The Celtics now lead the Cavaliers 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals. That was the closest game we've seen in the conference finals to this point.

The Rockets head to Oakland for Game 6 on Saturday night a win away from knocking off the defending champions and advancing to the NBA Finals for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 1994-95.

But despite a disappointing loss on the road, the mood in the Warriors camp remains upbeat and full of confidence.

It's tough to pick this game without knowing the health of Chris Paul.

D'Antoni wouldn't speculate on Paul's availability if the Warriors force Game 7 on Monday night in Houston.

It's upon Kerr to find a way to mesh the Warriors' offense, which now looks like it's in a battle with itself over what it wants to be.

Golden State host game six on Saturday. Now, Houston have an a massive chance to finally claim their first series lead in the Western Conference Finals over the Warriors.

The Rockets held the Warriors to a.167 field-goal percentage in the 4th quarter in Game 4, the lowest for Golden State in any playoff period during its 6-year playoff streak. He's a ideal counter to Houston's defense.

Kevin Durant paced the Warriors with 29 points while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 45 points on 16-of-31 shooting.

"I feel great about where we are right now", Kerr said. "I lost the ball. not much more to it than that".

It's not on the players to figure out this puzzle as they go.

The Warriors have had as many or more turnovers as assists five times this season; two of those have come in their last 2 games.
