Golden State's Iguodala still struggling with bruised knee

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry declares Oracle Arena his house. More

It's a huge opportunity for Harden and Paul, who've both had their fair share of playoff disappointments in the past, but combined to score 57 points Tuesday's 95-92 win that put the top-seeded Rockets back in the driver's seat in this series.

Paul rebounded Klay Thompson's miss just before the final buzzer sounded for the first time and pounded the ball down in delight.

The Rockets' other leader, Chris Paul, was on the bench for the final 22.4 seconds due to a right hamstring injury.

While the Rockets are thrilled to see the momentum of the series swing their way for perhaps the first time in the series, the Warriors are upset that they let what they feel like was a winnable Game 4 get away.

Golden State led by one to start the fourth before Paul got going, scoring seven points to power a 10-5 run that gave the Rockets an 81-77 lead with about 9 1/2 minutes left.

Kevin Durant scored 29 points for the Warriors, who lost in Game 5 of a playoff series for just the second time since 2015. "So everybody has their role and some play a bigger role - bigger meaning they shoot the ball more so we as a society give them a bigger role - but everybody is just as important".

Green was asked what was supposed to happen on the play.

Iguodala missed Tuesday night's game after banging his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. "I'm just missing shots, but we're winning".

Thompson injured his left knee during Tuesday's Game 4.

Thompson made a 3-pointer after that and then officials reviewed Paul's first basket of the quarter and ruled he got it off after the shot clock expired, leaving the Warriors ahead 80-79.

With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line. "He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", Kerr said. Green had 12 points, 15 rebounds and six turnovers. "So I saw Draymond trying to call it, and I was hoping they'd give it to us, but we didn't get it", said the two-time champion coach.
