The Houston Rockets got a huge win against the Warriors in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday night, but it came with a hefty price. Chris Paul had to leave the game with a hamstring injury, and will not be able to play in Game 6 on Saturday night. Mario talks about what a huge loss Paul will be for Houston because he's been playing great, and he's the emotional leader of the team. The Rockets will have to rely on James Harden in Game 6, and hope Chris Paul is ready to go for Game 7 if necessary.
