"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 championJames 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.

"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.

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.
