The 65-win Houston Rockets, proud owners of the best record in the NBA this season, are being treated like a national joke after one loss. Nor did it mean anything that Houston was the No. 1 seed and had home court advantage. The Rockets were working very hard for every look at the basket, while it looked too easy for the Warriors as they feasted on cuts and kick outs. They've been there, done that, and redesigned the t-shirt.
These two teams are in line for a special finish tonight and potentially a special series overall.
"It's a must that you have to have (someone like him) against Golden State or they're going to get you", he said.

Rockets: Paul added 23 points and 11 rebounds. But no one else had a game that could even remotely be considered good for Houston. Trevor Ariza and P.J. Tucker combined for nine points in the first game.
The Rockets stormed out with a 21-12 lead with 5:12 left in the first quarter, but the Warriors remained composed enough to respond back.
"We want to keep the ball moving", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "Sometimes, when you play on such a great team, with other great scorers in Klay and Steph, you tend to sometimes think, 'Oh, man, I need to get him a shot.' The way our offense is set up, the ball is going to find those three guys and they're going to get their shots. He can get a bucket as well as anybody on Earth".
3 lessons Boston Celtics can learn from Pacers to dethrone LeBron James
Nothing is too big for the Core Four - James, Smith, Thompson and Love - after rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the 2016 NBA Finals. The Eastern Conference Finals open on Sunday at TD Garden, and all eyes will be on James, but discerning ones should be on Love.
Durant managed to do essentially whatever he wanted in the half in terms of scoring, tallying 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting. "There's just so much belief in LeBron through the years". After becoming part of the team's unassuming All-Star through two National Basketball Association title runs in three years, Warriors guard Klay Thompson had 28 points while going 9-of-18 from the field and 6-of-15 from the 3-point range.
The game started out as good as expected with the Rockets taking an early lead, 30-29, after the first. Harden may have finished with more points but it's an absolutely taxing style and he gassed out in the third quarter, which is when the Warriors made their move. Houston never regained the lead as the Warriors cruised to the win. The Houston Rockets continued to fire away while the Warriors were like sitting ducks camouflaged in a ton of tall grass, waiting to escape from being completely poached.
Game Two will be Wednesday night in Houston.
