NBA Playoffs 2018: Warriors-Rockets Combined Playing 12

Rockets have last, best chance to put stop to Warriors dynasty The inevitability of the Warriors and Rockets
Frederick Owens | 15 May, 2018, 01:13

"It's different", Kerr said, according to ESPN. The Rockets said they're more than up for the challenge. "We seem to be at our best when we are threatened". That's been kind of the M.O. of this team. At least to us regular folks who don't actually have to play in Game 1.

The Rockets, sparked by National Basketball Association scoring champion James Harden, were 2-1 against Golden State in the regular season and went a league-best 65-17 overall, seizing a home-court advantage in the series. "Support them the best we can as a one-Houston sports city", Astros manager AJ Hinch said.

"This might be a series where you lose one or two and then win four in a row - either side".

A road game to start the Western Conference Finals against one of the best teams they've ever faced in the playoffs? The Warriors will be waiting to strike in Game 1, but if the Rockets can win on Monday, it could give them a huge mental lift. These two teams were clearly the class of the Western Conference all season long, as they were the top two seeds well above the 49-win Trail Blazers in third place. The Rockets won two of three matchups between the teams this season, and Houston arguably had the stronger regular season. "We did win 65". Will Houston grab the early series lead tonight in Game 1 as a small home favorite? Now they begin the series in Houston, which was so unusual to the Warriors that some players reportedly booked the wrong plane tickets for family members. "And we haven't shown that yet and that's the doubt in most people's minds, until you show it they don't know.so we've just got to beat them and show them we can do it". The thing about playing the Warriors is that you have to work incredibly hard to keep pace with their scoring.

Stephen Curry certainly feels back to his spot-on self with the swagger that goes with those dazzling drives and way-back 3-pointers.

LeBron James continues to prove why he is the best player in the league, despite being in his 15th season, averaging 34.3 points per game in the postseason. Despite already losing more games during this playoff run, the Warriors are still the Goliath that the rest of the league is looking to conquer. "It's time to play".

The Rockets big man has averaged 12.2 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game, including a ridiculous 3.6 blocks over a five-game span in the second round. I see Capela being the X factor for Houston in this game.

"What he does has been unbelievable", D'Antoni said. Paul is also an adept pickpocket, averaging 2.1 steals per in the playoffs after recording 1.7 per contest in the regular season.

They still have the hardware.

The Warriors are underdogs for the first time in a game with Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. I think I'm not supposed to say that, but we're basically obsessed with 'How do we beat the Warriors?'

Of course as you already know, the Sixers won't be advancing to the next round of the playoffs, after being ousted last week by the Boston Celtics. You got the opposing fans coming at you. I like our position.

"We're going in here knowing we're the defending champs, knowing we got a couple championships here the last few years".
