Without Steph Curry there was concern that Golden State would struggle against Houston. There were absolutely no issues last night as the Warriors rolled against the Rockets by a final of 114-81. Klay Thompson carried the team with 27 points including seven three-pointers made on 11 attempts. Klay was happy with his and his teams performance.

As for the Heat, they did not fare as well. Even with 25 points from Dwayne Wade, the Charlotte Hornets were able to sneak out a two-point victory over the Heat in Miami by a final of 90-88. The Heat now have their back against the wall with a Game 6 matchup on the road facing elimination. That will be played this Friday.

Out west it is looking like Portland has taken over the series against the Clippers. The absence of Chris Paul really showed last night. C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard combined for 49 points in route to a 108-98 win over the Clippers. The series is now 3-2 and the Trail Blazers are a win away from a round two date with Golden State.
