Steve Kerr's Warriors have never faced a team quite like the Rockets

  • Kragthorpe: They're stuck in the West, but the Jazz like where they stand after a season of improvement

"My mom used to say to me, 'man, Donovan, you're good.' I'd be like, alright, thank you but moms are supposed to say that".

Golden State has lost just twice in the opening two rounds of the postseason and they'll look to maintain that momentum now that the team is healthy again.

Paul's final stat line reads like a Curry game for the ages: 13-of-22 shooting, 8-of-10 3-point shooting, 7-of-8 foul shooting, seven rebounds, 10 assists, no turnovers and plus-20 in point differential.

The Rockets run a revival of the ultimate two-man show with Chris Paul and James Harden posing as the league's most unexpected - yet lucrative - backcourt. Golden State also needs to keep on dominating the third quarter. It wasn't until the Warriors were plagued with major injuries towards the end of the regular season that it became clear the Rockets would have the home-court advantage in any potential playoff matchup.

Houston, Vegas has a problem with your Rockets. "We know they are ready, and we'll be ready for them". Morey said that he'd like to see the Rockets get the No. 1 seed.

As well as advancing to the Conference Finals for the first time in his career, according to ESPN, the Rockets point guard now joins the legendary Chicago Bulls star as the only two players throughout National Basketball Association history to have accomplished a certain feat.

The Western Conference Finals get underway in the Lone Star State with the two teams that most expected to be here squaring off.

China's trade surplus with USA widens to $22.19 billion in April
Chinese Vice Premier Liu He was involved in the Beijing-based trade talks with the US trade delegation. The country's surplus with the USA expanded to $22.19B - compared with a surplus of $15.43B in March.

There has been no team better built to credibly challenge these Warriors since Kevin Durant signed with them in July 2016. That total is the highest on the secondary market for a Conference Final since TicketIQ began tracking data in 2011.

"I think the Jazz want me back, so hopefully it all works out", said Exum who missed 68 games in the regular season with a shoulder injury.

Taking down the defending champions is a daunting task. "I think both teams are different and playing better".

The Westgate opened the over/under on Game 1 at 225.5. If you in the way of that, then you happen to be in the way. Clint Capela (five points, five boards, three steals, five blocks) and Eric Gordon (two of eight, eight points) were non-factors offensively: they will have to step things up against the Warriors as it will be all hands on deck for the Rockets.

"It's been awhile since we started out a series on the road", Green said. "We'll see who better". The Rockets, meanwhile, are seeking their first trip back to the Finals since winning back-to-back titles in 1993-94 and 1994-95.

It's all we've been asking for.
