So much for that guarantee, Jason Terry…
Dwight Howard had eight points on 3-for-13 shooting and 21 rebounds in Game 5, and is likely headed elsewhere this summer.
Per the AP:
“None of us can do it alone,” Thompson insisted hours earlier. […] He sure got things started, scoring 27 points with seven 3-pointers as the Warriors rolled into the second round of the playoffs without their injured superstar, thoroughly embarrassing the Houston Rockets 114-81 on Wednesday night in Game 5.
Draymond Green added 15 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Warriors, who will face the winner of the Clippers-Trail Blazers series. Portland leads 3-2. […] “Everybody, they think Steph (Curry) goes down and the entire series changes. But we thought otherwise,” Green said.
James Harden scored 25 of Houston’s 37 first-half points on the way to 35 points, but the Rockets had no chance with a one-man show against the deep defending champions. […] “The season, from the beginning, wasn’t going our way. Just had too many distractions,” Harden said. “It’s just been like a bumpy road this entire season.”
