Klay Thompson flashed back to a night he left the arena still in uniform, furious about his forgettable performance against Denver.

Don't turn the ball over a lot and you'll usually win the game. When Thompson scored through a foul on the first possession of the second half, the Warriors captured their first lead of the game at 47-45.

Warriors star Draymond Green said uncertainty over Paul's status wouldn't change Golden State's preparation for their must-win game six. The Warriors have been suffering from their own injury woes, missing Andre Iguodala for the last two games - both Houston wins.

Once Golden State got going in transition, following clutch defensive stops, Thompson found the looks he so prefers from long range.
