"Draymond was trying to call one around four seconds", Kerr told reporters after a 95-92 win allowed the Rockets to tie the NBA Western Conference finals at 2-all heading to Game Five on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

Joshua got in on the action in the warm-up, nonchalantly taking a pass from Curry with one hand and returning the ball for the two-time MVP to nail a three-pointer.

It's Houston's second straight win in the series after snapping Golden State's National Basketball Association playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Tuesday night. Though he's never reached this level in the postseason before, his 13 years of NBA experience have proven invaluable as the Rockets try to knock off the defending champions and advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since winning consecutive titles in 1994-95.

"Once he got trapped, and at that point the officials weren't looking, and they're not going to look down at our bench. I kept telling the guys, 'We can win this game.' And now it's a best-out-of-three". "We've got to see how he feels in pregame".

Though the pressure to perform is heightened for Harden and Paul, Rockets players and D'Antoni agree that they can't get it done without plenty of help from Houston's supporting cast. "I lost the ball. not much more to it than that".

North Korea also demanded the United States stop military exercises with South Korea, the North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper said. Kim Yong Chol was seen at Beijing's airport just after noon on Wednesday as he was heading to his connecting flight.

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

The Rockets honoured the 10 people killed in last week's school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, before the game, with the school's choir singing the national anthem and team owner Tilman Fertitta wearing a "Santa Fe Strong" T-shirt, before Houston scored the game's first six points in a first half where the team led by as many as 11.

This series has already had so many ups and downs that it could give a young person gray hair.

Houston won despite being outshot from the floor 44.4 percent to 37.2 percent. He's feeling a little better today. "It's great competition, against one of the best teams ever".
