The last 14 minutes of Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinal between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets were as wild as any NBA fan could ask for in a playoff series. Klay Thompson was at the center of the action.

Golden State had as large as a 20-point lead in the first half, but the Rockets clawed back into the game behind some hot shooting from deep and a subsequent three-point drought from Golden State amidst shooting struggles from both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

With just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter, Kevin Durant knocked down a jumper and immediately grabbed his right leg. It would later be revealed that Durant had suffered a mild calf strain, and he would be ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

The Rockets had a wonderful opportunity to seize the series lead on Golden State's home floor, but Curry and Klay Thompson both got hot in the fourth quarter, which was mostly a stalemate heading toward the final minutes.

After James Harden scored on a driving layup to cut Houston's deficit to 102-99, the Warriors took the ball out on the sideline with 18 seconds remaining. In a wild scramble, Klay Thompson eventually ended up with a loose ball and scored to give the Warriors the five-point lead and wrap up the win.

After the game, replays appeared to show that Thompson may have stepped out of bounds while he was being double-teamed after the inbounds play, but ESPN's Tim McMahon reports that the NBA's Last 2 Minute Report found replays to be inconclusive:

A turnover would have given the Rockets a chance to tie the game, but instead they will have to return to Houston for Game 6 hoping to keep their season alive and send the series back to Oakland for Game 7 on Sunday.
