A HUGE WIN for the Houston Rockets. 

What a game though. This was the series that everybody was promised. Even without Andre Iguodala, the Warriors put up a tough fight but turnovers came back to bite them. They committed 16 of them, one too many in the final period and now for the first time since the 2016 Western Conference Finals, the Warriors trail in a Playoff series. 

It might not be over though. In the final minute of the game, Chris Paul came up hobbling. He didn't play any possession after that and seemed in some obvious discomfort. 

How much will he be able to recover before Game 6 on Saturday in Oakland at the Oracle Arena? Only time will tell.
