The Golden State Warriors find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they sit on the brink of elimination following their Game 5 loss to the Houston Rockets.

With Game 6 set to take place back in the Bay Area on Saturday, the Warriors will be hoping to force a Game 7 back in Houston on Monday.

Despite the predicament the Warriors find themselves in, coach Steve Kerr doesn't appear fazed as he attempts to lead his troops past the Rockets.

''I feel great about where we are right now, that may sound crazy but I feel it," Kerr said in his post-game press conference.

''I know exactly what I'm seeing out there and we defended them beautifully, got everything we needed. Just too many turnovers, too many reaches and if we settle down a little bit, we're going to be in really good shape.

''I'm extremely confident that we're going to take care of business. We've just got to be a little sharper."

Draymond Green echoed the thoughts of his coach and stated the Warriors know they can pull this one off and take the final two games of the series.

''We know what we're capable of, we know we can win two games. A sense of 'you've been there before' is always a good feeling," Green said post-game.

''What we've put out there on the floor the past two games it easily could have been two wins, we know the things we can improve on and we'll improve on those things.''

The situation is brand new for the Warriors since Kevin Durant joined the team, but with their backs against the wall expect the Warriors to come out swinging in front of their home crowd when Game 6 gets underway on Saturday.
