"But we can't count on it", Kerr said.
Curry couldn't help but appreciate Paul, though.
Paul was receiving treatment after the game and did not speak to reporters.
Late in Thursday night's game, Paul, who happens to be one of James' best friends, suffered a hamstring injury on a drive attempt to the hoop. But he did address what it would mean to Golden State if he's healthy enough to go on Saturday. They obviously have the talent to still turn this thing around, but they'll have to start by taking care of the ball better after 16 turnovers in Game 5. Golden State also needs to keep on dominating the third quarter. Durant and Curry both made just one field goal in the fourth quarter of Game 4, shooting a combined two-of-13 as the Warriors blew a sizeable lead.More news: Woman poops on floor, throws her dung at restaurant employee

The injury occurred with around 50 seconds left in Game 5. Gordon averaged 21.5 points and 3.4 assists in 30 games as a fill-in starter this season.
Told by ESPN that these Rockets are not the Grizzlies, Green responded assertively: "We'll be back here for Game 7". They thought he could not endure: "So we're gonna post you up with KD [Kevin Durant], we're going to turn up the defence on you and eventually, you will get too exhausted and you will make all the mistakes". "Just with the talent we have on this team and the resiliency and what not, you know, we can get the job done".
The Warriors need a win at home to stave off elimination and force a Memorial Day Game 7 matchup at Houston after they lost for the second consecutive game Thursday with Iguodala sidelined due to a knee contusion. That's too much of a burden for Harden to carry against an elite defensive team. He scored 20 points, including several key 3-pointers, in the Game 5 win.
The Rockets have not reached the Finals since they managed it on successive occasions in in 1994 and 1995.
