It's Game 6 on Saturday night (May 26), as the Rockets vs Warriors live stream online and televised series continues. Houston holds the 3-2 lead right now, but Golden State will try to force a Game 7 with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line. The Warriors won't only have home court advantage, but an advantage due to the Rockets missing star player Chris Paul. Here's the latest game preview including matchup odds, start time, TV channel, and how to watch the Rockets vs Warriors live streaming online.

Game 6 preview

Guard Chris Paul has been a huge boost for the Houston Rockets this past season and throughout the playoffs.

Unfortunately, he'll be sidelined for tonight's potential close-out game with a strained right hamstring. It's unknown at this point if "CP3" will be able to go if a Game 7 happens, but he's been a major help throughout the series. In Game 5, he scored 20 of the team's points in a big win. It's being speculated that this could be the first time in Paul's NBA career that he reaches the NBA Finals with a team, only to be injured during that appearance. The good news has been that Houston has a 15-9 record without Paul in the lineup during his 24 missed games this past season. James Harden hasn't shot well in any of the Rockets' wins so if he heats up it could be series over.

On the opposing side will be a Golden State Warriors team looking to take advantage of playing at ORACLE Arena.

They are 36-6 at home in the NBA Playoffs since 2015 when head coach Steve Kerr began his tenure. Golden State was also on a 16-game winning streak at home, but Houston defeated them at ORACLE in Game 5, 95-92. While the first three games of the series were blowouts, the past two have been close losses for the Warriors. They'll try to attack tonight's game with a "stay alive" mentality for the postseason as their group of All-Stars tries to capture this "must win" game.

Since their backs are against the wall and they're playing at home with CP3 out, the Golden State Warriors are big favorites. Currently, they are favored to win tonight's game by 12.5 points, and are priced at -1400 on the moneyline. The visiting Houston Rockets are +800 underdogs, with the over/under points total at 213 points for the game.
