Heat snap Rockets’ five-game win streak after Paul injured

Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul appeared to injure his left hamstring against the Miami Heat on Thursday. After the game, Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said Paul is most likely going to be out for a while.

Paul limped off to the locker room in the second quarter holding his left hamstring.

The loss in Miami ended the Rockets' five-game winning streak and Houston slipped to 16-15, which now sees them hold the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Gordon's last-second miss was a reflection of what type of night it was for both teams - the Rockets finished the game shooting 29-for-82 (35.4 percent) from the field while the Heat were slightly better, shooting 36-for-93 (38.7 percent) on the night.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Danilo Gallinari scored 32 points, Lou Williams added 26 and Los Angeles snapped a four-game losing streak by beating Dallas. And with 1:20 left, Wade used the same move he's used for 16 seasons - the shot fake on the wing - to induce Gordon into a foul that he turned into two free throws for a 101-96 edge. His teams have gone 9-10 during his absences.

He also missed Games 6 and 7 of the Western Conference Finals last season with a right hamstring injury, when the Golden State Warriors rallied back to take the series and reach the NBA Finals. Thursday marked his first appearance in an National Basketball Association game at Miami since March 2, 2015.

They lost only 17 regular-season games last season.
