We've been waiting for Warriors-Rockets for what feels like forever

We've been waiting for Warriors-Rockets for what feels like forever

The Warriors steamrolled NOLA in Game 1 without Curry, and the two-time MVP's return in Game 2 gave Golden State a commanding 2-0 series lead.

When asked if he is going to celebrate this moment, he said no. "You see when you let the dog off the leash what happens". They say they're just getting started and will only get better from here. The Bulls did so from April 27, 1990 to May 21, 1991. "I'm like, he's too hot right now", said Shiloh McFadden. "Timing could still get a little bit better with the ball and things like that when you start to get so excited, still when I'm out there missing six weeks is still appreciative of being out there playing". "I think that if we're doing what we're supposed to do on defense - all the switches, the weak side - and keep playing our offense by keeping that mentality all game long, we have the weapons to beat them".

His last, and most important goal, is for the Rockets to defeat the reigning champion Golden State Warriors in a 7 game series.

The Rockets finished 7 games ahead of the Warriors in the Western Conference, but it turns out Vegas isn't all that impressed by that.

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. Houston eliminated Utah in its Game 5 earlier Tuesday. He accomplished most of his handiwork off the dribble, utilizing his quickness to get to the rim. But after missing almost six weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, Curry clocked in for four games of the second round against the Pelicans. "Obviously, there's a conversation and there's a free agent market that is hard to predict".

Paving way with their new-found floor general and heavily improved backcourt, the Rockets have successfully built a team-specific franchise to gain West supremacy over Golden State. Mitchell also developed an ability to take over games offensively late in the season, giving the Jazz a boost at critical times.

"We've been hearing about that match-up all year", Durant told NBC Sports on Tuesday. And on Tuesday night, put away the New Orleans Pelicans for good.

Paul has taken a larger scoring role in the playoffs as he's averaged 3.2 more points a game through 10 postseason games than he did during the regular season. Harden, whose only trip to the Finals came with Oklahoma City in 2012 when the Durant-Russell Westbrook Thunder lost to Miami, had the worst finish of any star player in the 2017 playoffs in the second-round loss to San Antonio.
