San Antonio Spurs vs. Houston Rockets

Two questionable plays closed regulation with the game tied at 101. "The diving on loose balls, coming up with whatever it may be, you're throwing your body on the line in those situations".

Jonathon Simmons played a crucial role for San Antonio all night.

Ginobili, having an atrocious series in what is once again is projected to be one final run in the playoffs for the future hall of famer, woke up in game 5 to deliver a vintage performance. "So I think everybody else picked it up very well". "It's going to be tough".

It was Green and Ginobili who led the Spurs to the win. The Rockets had opportunities at the end of the 3rd quarter to widen the gap, but poor shot selection and turnovers foiled those plans. I saw a switch, but I should have stayed up because (Patrick) Beverley went with LaMarcus and we could have played off that. "We weren't going to lose the game being on our heels".

San Antonio simply can not afford another injury to its rotation to have a shot at contending for an NBA Championship this summer.

Leonard is among the NBA's leading MVP candidates after averaging a career-high 25.5 points with 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game, while playing elite defense.

If the scale of Theresa May's victory in Britain's local elections was startling, so too was its geography. Time and again the phrase they use is that those around Jeremy Corbyn must "own" any defeat.

Both teams struggled to score in overtime, with Houston's James Harden scoring a triple double with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the game but failing to score a point in the extra period.

The All-Star still finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds.

The Spurs now have a 3-2 edge in the series after Wednesday's overtime win, but it would be hardly shocking if the Rockets and their incredible offensive firepower stole the series by winning the next two games. The Spurs failed to take a shot on their final possession, with Patty Mills banking in a 3-pointer after the buzzer sounded.

The Spurs had a choice at the end of Game 5 in their National Basketball Association playoff series vs. the Rockets: Foul or defend. Victory at the AT&T Center today would ensure the Spurs have two bites at the cherry to progress to the Western Conference Finals in Games 6 and 7. This series has been so close that even if Leonard is at 80 percent that could be enough to swing it in Houston's favor.

Popovich said he was unsure of the severity of Leonard's injury, despite Leonard's claim that it would not keep him out of the lineup. In a game where neither team held more than a three-point lead at the quarter break, you knew it would come right down to the wire. Leonard attempted to play on it for the remainder of the third and for a four minute stretch in the fourth, but Greg Popovich noticed on a shot attempt Leonard was taking off on one foot and elected to pull him from the game, despite Leonard's objections.
