As a result of their Game 5 win, the Rockets have moved ahead of the Warriors in the series, 3-2.
In 13 games this postseason, Iguodala has averaged 7.9 points on 47.9 percent shooting and 4.9 rebounds in 27.5 minutes. "We want to take advantage of it".
At his postgame news conference, Stephen Curry, who scored 22 points, was asked to explain how exactly it is that they are in a great position. Instead, Kerr has had to use Quinn Cook, who ended up missing a pivotal 3-point attempt in the closing minute of Game 5. "But we can't count on it", Kerr said. But Paul remembered it, and a couple games later an opportunity for some semblance of retaliation came. But this is Paul's best chance to beat Curry and the Warriors in the playoffs, despite an injury at the end of Game 5 that has his status for Game 6 up in the air. In the West, Game 6 will be played on Saturday and a potential Game 7 would be on Monday. But under the lights in the Toyota Center with the world watching, Cook missed an open three that would have given the Warriors the lead, and perhaps the win.

I think it's probably a safe bet that when the Rockets are playing on their home floor again, that Timberlake and Watt will probably be in attendance. "Just too many turnovers, too many reaches, and if we settle down a little bit, we're going to be in really good shape".
