Golden State's edge in offensive efficiency against Houston, therefore, will be its lowest since the 2015 NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the only time, at least on paper, they are the lessor of the two; the Warriors scored 113.6 points per 100 possessions during the 2017-18 regular season.

The two-time champion Warriors, according to the Las Vegas-based Westgate SuperBook, opened-185 picks to prevail in their best-of-seven confrontation with the Rockets starting Monday.

Stephen Curry missed more than five weeks, including Golden State's entire first round series against the San Antonio Spurs, with a sprained MCL. The NBA belongs to the Houston Rockets now.

The Warriors have won two of the last three National Basketball Association titles, both at the expense of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Rockets are hungry for their first taste of playoff glory since the mid 90's, and they have the squad and arsenal-both defensive and offensive-to push the Warriors in their upcoming series. Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals is Monday in Houston.

The Rockets are the number one seed in the playoffs with the NBA's best overall record. Center Clint Capela has also made his bones on a club whose defensive efficiency rating of 103.8 points per 100 possessions was sixth this season, which was far better than a year ago when they were ranked 18 and allowed 106.4 points per 100 possessions.

Even though the Rockets won two out of three regular-season meetings against the Warriors, Kerr likes Golden State's position.

But most likely, it'll be another rematch between the Warriors and Cavaliers.

The Rockets are the Warriors most formidable rival they have faced in the last four seasons. After all, they are the No. 1 seed out west.

"I think Golden State may protect its home serve so it's imperative that the Houston Rockets do the same".

The dynamic duo of Houston's James Harden and Chris Paul rivals any in the league and that includes Curry and Durant. "Let's go get another one", he said.
