"We just have to continue what we're doing".
LeBron James was asked about the shimmy before the Game 6 shootaround, and he said he smiled and laughed at it.
The Rockets head into Game 6 on Sunday in Oakland one win away from knocking off the defending champions and advancing to the NBA Finals for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 1994-95.
"We'll see [if he can play Game 6]". Since that point, he has won 10 of 13 elimination games, and his stats are out of this world, averaging 35.8 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists.
With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead, Gordon sealed the victory at the foul line.
Down by one with less than 15 seconds left, two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry missed one of his patented running lay-ups.
"We've been here before", Curry said.
In the locker room, Curry and Draymond Green were discussing the vibe of the series and agreed that it reminded them of the series with the Memphis Grizzlies from three years ago. New Orleans fell 4-1 in the first round to Carmelo Anthony's Nuggets and derailed what appeared to be an otherwise promising postseason run for Paul's Hornets squad that fell seven games shy of a franchise-best regular-season record.
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul and Curry have been rivals for most of the 2010s. Gordon made all three free throws to start a 7-2 spurt that extended the lead to 88-82 midway through the quarter. And then with what we've put out there on the floor the last two games, it could have easily been two wins.
Harden did point out he is impacting the game in other ways as he tries to shoot his way out of his offensive struggles. "Obviously, a sense that you've been there before is always a good feeling".
