Warriors vs Rockets, Game 5: Andre Iguodala out, Klay Thompson in

New, comments

It’s the most important game of the series, and the Warriors will be without one starter, but thankfully not two.

If you’re nervous, I don’t particularly blame you. This is the 97th game of the year for both the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, and it is by far the most important for both.

With the series tied at two games apiece, the winner of the game will have two chances - one at home and one on the road - to clinch the series, and advance to the NBA Finals.

In other words, both teams have their backs against the wall, which makes this game as nerve-wracking as it is exciting and compelling.

Injury report

There were a lot of questions yesterday about Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, who were both listed as questionable yesterday due to knee injuries. The news today is hot and cold: Iguodala will miss his second consecutive game, while Thompson will be staying in the lineup.

It’s time, Dub Nation.

Here. We. Go.
