Warriors favored over Rockets, who have home court


"You see when you let the dog off the leash what happens".

With Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala in the starting lineup, the Warriors have two players who can match up pretty well with the Rockets' pair of guards. The Bulls did so from April 27, 1990 to May 21, 1991.

Draymond Green: 19 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists. "I'm like, he's too hot right now", said Shiloh McFadden.

"We know they are ready, and we'll be ready for them".

Golden State will be playing in the Western Conference finals for the fourth straight year, having advanced to the NBA Finals each of the previous three seasons and winning titles in 2017 and 2015. With five full off days between the Warriors' and Rockets' respective second-round clinchers on Tuesday and Game 1 of their series, a lot of people will be saying a lot of somethings.

There will be a ton of Hall of Fame talent on the floor when the Warriors and Rockets face off to determine which team will represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. Houston eliminated Utah in its Game 5 earlier Tuesday. Yes, this is the most compelling series we could have hoped for.

Curry, who returned for Game 2 after almost six weeks out with a knee injury, knocked down an open 3-pointer midway through the third and raised his hands to get the crowd going, then made another less than two minutes later. "Obviously, there's a conversation and there's a free agent market that is hard to predict".

In order to slow down the Rockets' high-powered offense, Golden State will need to prevent their guards from getting penetration and making plays. Mitchell also developed an ability to take over games offensively late in the season, giving the Jazz a boost at critical times. "Everybody takes their job serious".

"The first two games here, we've gotten production out of the bottom of the order and that sets up nicely for the top of the order", Hinch said.

Road signs pointing to 'US Embassy' go up in Jerusalem
The worldwide community considers the annexation illegal and considers east Jerusalem as occupied territory. President Donald Trump announced Monday the delegation that will attend the opening of the U.S.

The Warriors advanced past the Pelicans in five games, while the Rockets moved past the Jazz in five games.

As Pelicans' coach Alvin Gentry gave instructions to Rondo, Green walked over and joined their huddle - until a referee yanked him away. "I've never been that way", Mitchell said. "Should that surprise me?"

Until this breakthrough, he had played in more playoff games than any player in league history without reaching this point (86).

Yet after telling reporters on Tuesday morning shoot-around that he wasn't sure when he would be fully healthy, the fact that Curry played 37 minutes was the best sign yet that he's truly back.

He was 32 for 67 with 15 3s in the series.

Game 6 of that series, if necessary, would be Friday in Philadelphia, with a potential Game 7 scheduled for Sunday back in Boston. While the Rockets won by double figures, it was a one point game when the Jazz's star rookie Donovan Mitchell went down with an injury.

What's more, Paul knows what it feels like to beat the Warriors in a playoff series. Durant received the Al Attles Community Impact Award in a pregame ceremony.

The Warriors' 15th straight home play-off win also tied the National Basketball Association record set by the Chicago Bulls in 1990-91.
