OAKLAND, Calif. — Rockets center Dwight Howard will be suspended for a potential Game 6 on Friday in Houston after picking up his seventh technical of the postseason in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Wednesday night.
The Warriors lead the series 3-1. If Game 6 is necessary, the Rockets likely will ask the league to rescind the technical to allow him to play in that game.
