What Will Game 6 Look Like In Oakland?

Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon debate if the Rockets are doomed without Chris Paul, if tonight is the last glimpse at LeBron in a Cavaliers jersey and more. Plus, Brian Windhorst joins.


Is This Bad News For The Rockets?

Mina Kimes, Papi and Izzy Gutierrez question if the Rockets are (bleeped) without Chris Paul in Game 6, if Draymond or KD was a bigger choker, if this is the end for the Cavaliers and much more.

The Rockets defense has been stellar the past 2 games, especially late, holding Golden State to 26 points combined in the last two 4th quarters. Which is why this quote today from one of their defensive anchors, PJ Tucker, is extremely interesting. "It's something that's built up all year. We see our defense now be as good as it is, but we still feel it could be a lot better. We just watched film, and honestly it wasn't great. We didn't play great defense last night. Everybody is talking about how great we were on that end, but we really don't feel that way. We need to keep working and be even better next game."

James Harden on Chris Paul's absence: "It's tough, but we don't just want to be down about it. We don't want to be pouting around. Keep our same swagger, our same positive energy. And we kind of feed that off to him as well. Be happy, be ready. Get this thing right, get this thing going and be back in no time."

Mike D'Antoni on Chris Paul's injury: "I hate it for him above all. He's practically won us these last two games." He added that he may extend his rotation to 8 maybe 9 guys, and that Eric Gordon will start in Paul's place for Game 6.

Despite being ruled out for Game 6, Mike D'Antoni says Chris Paul will travel with the team to Oakland.

Steph Curry on Chris Paul's shimmy: "It was well deserved. It was a tough shot. If you can shimmy on somebody else, you've got to be all right getting shimmied on. So I'll keep shimmying and maybe he will as well."
