The ball squirted away in the direction of Eric Gordon, who was immediately fouled and sank the two free throw attempts to seal the game.

A massive opportunity awaits James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Houston committed four quick turnovers. The Rockets' other leader, Chris Paul, was on the bench for the final 22.4 seconds due to a right hamstring injury.

"We'll see", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said when asked about Paul's status for Saturday's game six, when the Rockets can clinch a berth in the NBA Finals.

"Ninety-four points for a team like that, the guys are trying to find a way and they did", D'Antoni said. They'll do whatever they can do. The Warriors are 16-8 all-time in Game 6 of postseason series. The five guys on the floor and whoever else is playing, we're going to roll.

Forecasters predict active hurricane season: 10-16 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes
One to four of those hurricanes could be "major" with threatening winds blowing at at least 111mph. Harvey , Irma and Maria have been retired from the list of hurricane names, Robichaud said.

The biggest key to tonight's game for the Warriors is Stephen Curry.

It's the "break it up" chorus, and ahead of a Game 7 on Monday that - let's be honest - could go either way, they're gearing up to chime in again. "Penetrates, kind of sag off, and he hits me for a 3", Gordon said. "I lost the ball. not much more to it than that".

Thompson came through with his best performance of these playoffs with the season on the line, just as he did in a 2016 Game 6 of the Western Conference finals at Oklahoma City when he went off for 41 points against Durant and the Thunder to force Game 7.

James passed Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone with the 12th first-team selection of his 15-year career. With Patrick McCaw (lumbar spine contusion) already out, Steve Kerr would probably have to give Nick Young - one of his more inconsistent players - more meaningful minutes.

"I think Klay doesn't worry too much about repercussions".

"Draymond saw an open lane to the basket, but he knew time was winding down a little bit", Kerr said. That served to ignite him. If not, the Warriors will reevaluate Iguodala and Thompson prior to tipoff. He's going to have to put this team on his back like he's done so many times in the past.

The Warriors kept up the pressure - Durant posting 18 and Steph Curry 11 as Golden State made it 45-45 at half-time.

The Warriors dropped a critical Game 4 against the Houston Rockets Tuesday at Oracle Arena, setting up a pivotal Game 5 in Houston Thursday. These Rockets were 14th in pace in the National Basketball Association this season, they are not a D'Antoni seven seconds or less team, they are methodical and hunt mismatches, running only when it suits them.

Flash flooding causes chaos in parts of Baltimore
Larry Hogan, who declared a state of emergency for the flooded community, visited the area as the sun began to go down. After floods devastated Ellicott City in 2016 , killing two people, it was called a "once in 1,000 years flood".

"I guess you could say I was born for it. Man, that felt good", Thompson said. You can't take a weakened team into a new home.
