Spurs overcome Leonard injury, Harden to beat Rockets in OT

That prevented Houston from running a proper play that could have tied the game, and a last-second block by Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili sealed the deal. It seemed like he was being held or he was unaware if the ball was coming to him. The Spurs' big men only managed 2-for-5 shooting in the opening three minutes, leading San Antonio to abandon the strategy midway through the first quarter and sub Simmons for Gasol. After Manu Ginobili tied the game at 101 with 34 seconds left, Houston called a timeout.

"I was trying to keep them in front of me", Harden said.

Spurs' Patty Mills (08) scores against Houston Rockets' Trevor Ariza (01) and Eric Gordon (10) at the Toyota Center on Friday, May 5, 2017. Winning at home without the small forward in crunch time was one thing, but defeating the Rockets on the road when Leonard might still be hampered won't be easy. He went on to play in a team-high 43 points, scoring 20 points. Manu Ginobili switched with Jonathon Simmons to defend James Harden at the three point line.

"No", he said. "Not in control until we win Game 6".

Tonight's game is at San Antonio, with Game 6 scheduled for Houston, and the deciding Game 7 if it's needed back in San Antonio.

Leonard had 22 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes before exiting with an injured right ankle. Ginobili wasn't alone. Danny Green had 16 points, outscoring Houston single-handedly in overtime, seven to six thanks to two momentum-swinging baskets. If he were to miss even one game that could be a huge problem for the Spurs.

Being listed as questionable doesn't normally mean much, but we should expect Leonard to do everything in his power to play in a potential series clincher on Thursday night.

The series returns to Houston on Thursday, where the Rockets fight for the opportunity to extend this series to its deciding game. "They're a great offensive team".

San Antonio point guard Patty Mills has repaid the faith of coach Gregg Popovich after starring in the Spurs' crucial game five victory against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

Teams that win Game 5 in a 2-2 series go on to win the series a ginormous percent of the time.

He made only four of 15 attempted three-pointers and crucially coughed up nine turnovers - including three in overtime.

Leonard was walking without a noticeable limp after Tuesday's game, though he struggled to put weight on his ankle shortly after the injury. Following back-to-back comeback wins by the East's top seed in the first two games in Boston, Washington returned the favor with a pair of dominant wins on its home court.
