Here's hoping Rockets advance in fascinating series with Spurs

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 wily Argentinian came up with a clutch play with under a minute to play in the fourth quarter, tying the score with a crafty drive and layup. Jonathon Simmons, who continues to have a tremendous series, had 12 points while playing lockdown defense on James Harden and readily attacking him off the dribble on the other end of the floor.

Already down point guard Tony Parker - who suffered a season-ending rupture of his quadriceps tendon in Game 2 - the Spurs would be forced to improvise again without a healthy Leonard.

Popovich declined to speculate on the seriousness of Leonard's injury. In the last seconds of the game the Spurs were up 110- 107.

Capitals overwhelm Penguins 5-2 to force Game 7
Puck possession and skating hadn't been the issues, and once he got the first playoff goal Saturday, the others came more easily. In beating the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist to put Ottawa up 3-2 in the series, Turris joined Devin Setoguchi, Martin St.

Now Leonard will prepare for Game 6 after leaving Tuesday's game with 22 points and 15 rebounds, his most boards in a playoff game since Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, when he had 16.

"I'm not sure if you saw the wrong foot right handed dunk, but that's one for the record books right there", Danny Green said after the game in relation to Ginobili's dunk. But he seemed to run out of gas in an overtime where he was held scoreless, and had a 3-pointer which could have tied the game blocked by 39-year-old Manu Ginobili just before the buzzer.

But it was a frustrating night for Harden, who led the scoring for the Rockets with 33 points and a triple-double but was unable to provide his team with the breakthrough in overtime. "We'll see how it goes ... when we travel". After Anderson answered, giving his team the lead 107-106, Green came back for an three-point play on Harden with just 30 seconds to go.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets will be filthy with themselves that they let this one get away as they had multiple opportunities to pull away late. The Spurs will have to win in Houston for the second time this series to avoid a Game 7 in San Antonio. Mark this one up for Houston, but it will not be an easy game.

Popovich said earlier in the day that Leonard would be a game-time decision.

Game 5 was back and forth all night long and was, by far, the closest game between these two teams this series. The victor of the semi-final will take on the Golden State Warriors in the best-of-seven West finals.

The home side also produced a fantastic fielding performance, including a brilliant catch by Axar Patel to dismiss Robin Uthappa. Marsh's departure prompted Amla to go on the offensive and the South African star hit two sixes off consecutive overs.
