You can't take that away from them. The Rockets won 65 games this regular season.
The verbal jousts between the Warriors and Rockets go back to the preseason, with Green questioning Houston's commitment to defense.
Houston is a 2-point favorite in Game 1 of the series, which is slated for Monday.
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. He played 27 minutes on his return when he came off the bench, and the coach revealed the precaution was due to his conditioning and not because of the knee injury. Despite 34 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks from Anthony Davis in his best game of the series, the Big 4 were too much for the Pellies.
Kim Jong Un Secretly Met With Xi Jinping Again
Like the March summit in Beijing , the Dalian summit was kept secret until Kim's plane left for Pyongyang on Tuesday afternoon. Shortly after the news of Kim-Xi meeting, Trump said he would speak with the Chinese President on North Korea.
The Warriors advance to play the top-seeded Houston Rockets in what has always been an anticipated Western Conference finals matchup - with a Finals feel, perhaps.
When Golden State eliminated Houston in the Conference Finals in 2015, the $665 average asking price on the secondary market seemed high.
Even with all that in mind, Houston still has to go out and beat the Warriors four times in a seven-game series, something no other team has done since Durant's arrival in the Bay.
Despite Houston's compelling regular season, the question remains: will the Rockets' passion for eradicating their postseason nightmares be enough to unmask the Warriors seasoned starting five?
Saints RB Mark Ingram suspended four games for PED violation
The Week 2 trip to New Orleans comes when the host Saints will be without starting running back Mark Ingram. Ingram will be eligible to return to the Saints on Monday, October 1.
In order to slow down the Rockets' high-powered offense, Golden State will need to prevent their guards from getting penetration and making plays. Having reached the Finals in each of the past three seasons and won two world titles in that span, the Warriors are on the verge of a modern-day dynasty. Morey said that he'd like to see the Rockets get the No. 1 seed.
Can he lead the team to the Finals?
Paul is coming off of possibly the best game of his career as he dropped 41 points and 10 assists on the Jazz with 7 rebounds and 0 turnovers as the Rockets clinched a berth in the Conference Finals.
He finished with 28 points, while Kevin Durant had 24 and Klay Thompson added 23. General manager Dennis Lindsey says the team will be focused on internal improvements first during the offseason.
Palestinian Authorities Urge to Boycott Opening of US Embassy in Jerusalem
The move prompted global condemnation and triggered a wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories. No country now has its embassy in Jerusalem, instead keeping them in the Israeli commercial capital Tel Aviv.
Houston's Hall of Fame talent is represented by their superstar guards James Harden and Chris Paul. He played 37.4 minutes per game. "Timing can still get a little better with the ball, things like that, when you start to get so excited.I continue to get better, continue to get my timing right and continue to get back to the normal rotations, normal, you know, minutes that I'm out there playing, and hopefully won't look back".
