The Houston Rockets shocked a lot of people by coming back from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter of Game 4 on Tuesday night to beat the warriors and even the Western Conference finals at 2-2. And now they’ve flipped the series around, taking a 3-2 lead with a 98-94 win in Game 5. It was an ugly game early, with both teams struggling to make shots. But it was closely contested, which made it exciting, as neither team could gain much of an advantage at any point in the second half.
Just as they did in Game 4, things went down to the wire, and the Warriors had the ball with a chance to win it or send things to overtime. But they turned the ball over, with Draymond Green dropping a pass from Steph Curry .
