It's Houston's second straight win in the series after snapping Golden State's National Basketball Association playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Tuesday night.
While Golden State will be without Iguodala, the Warriors will have Klay Thompson.
The Rockets say Paul's strained right hamstring will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston following Game 6. "We've got to see how he feels in pregame".
The Rockets will take a 3-2 series lead back to Oakland, Calif., with a chance to close out the defending champions on Saturday.
Though the Rockets are heading to Houston for Thursday's game, they know that playing at home doesn't give them an excuse to let up. "So everybody has their role and some play a bigger role - bigger meaning they shoot the ball more so we as a society give them a bigger role - but everybody is just as important". Draymond Green is OK with his team having its back against the wall and believes the Warriors play well when faced with adversity. "I'm just missing shots, but we're winning". A replay review ensued and it was determined Shaun Livingston fouled Paul before the game ended, so Paul made a free throw with 0.5 seconds left.

The Rockets were clinging to a one-point lead with about seven minutes left when Durant fouled Gordon on a 3-point attempt, losing one of his shoes in the process. "He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough", Kerr said.
Rockets: Clint Capela had 12 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double this post-season.
The Warriors got off to a flying start with a 12-0 raid on the visitors who trailed 28-19 by the end of a first quarter that saw Kevin Durant score 10.
Gordon tallied a team-high 24 points off the bench.
"We wanted to come out and give them light, put smiles on their faces (and) clear their minds a little bit", Harden said.
