Leonard officially questionable for Game 6

Leonard officially questionable for Game 6

San Antonio Spurs guard/forward Kawhi Leonard (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Game 6 on Thursday.

Upon advancing past the Houston Rockets on Thursday evening, the San Antonio Spurs appear to already be looking ahead to the Western Conference Finals. Leonard played 38 minutes and finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds as the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead. Rockets guard James Harden had 33 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 5 but had his last-second 3-point attempt was blocked by San Antonio guard Manu Ginobili.

The two-minute report also includes three other uncalled violations - but all three were offensive, and the offending team didn't score anyway.

With a home game, the Rockets were looking forward to having a home-court advantage, but that quickly disappeared.

Russia Investigation is 'Adequately Resourced,' Deputy FBI Director Says
McCabe repeatedly told senators that the FBI has adequate resources with which to conduct the Russian Federation investigation. He declined to say whether he is meeting personally with President Trump on Thursday, saying: "If I am, I wouldn't say".

"We let one slip away", Harden said. LaMarcus Aldridge also improved his game, scoring a game-high 34 points while grabbing 12 rebounds. With veteran center Nene (groin) done for the postseason, the Rockets only used seven players with 3-point bomber Ryan Anderson seeing action in the interior to help compensate for the loss.

"I don't know", he said. If Kawhi actually is limited in Game 6, San Antonio's shooting from the outside will need to improve, especially when wide open. The Rockets, who set an National Basketball Association record by making 1,081 3s in the regular season, have averaged 20.5 3-pointers in their two wins and just 13 in the three losses. The Spurs will have to win in Houston for the second time this series to avoid a Game 7 in San Antonio.

Boston played stout defense at the rim and turned those stops, which often left a Wizard behind the play under Celtics' basket, into transition points and separated itself early in a 123-101 win Wednesday. Houston has to have a victory in Game 6 to keep alive their hopes of reaching the conference finals for the second time in three years.
