Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors - 5/14/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

This is the kind of superstar a team can build around. He also lost 4-2 to the Thunder while with Los Angeles, and his Clippers had a 3-1 lead in 2015 before Houston won the next three games. However, it's going to be interesting to see how they defend a team that doesn't rely on just one guy to carry the load.

The Rockets have wanted the Warriors all season, and now they have them and even though Draymond Green may not feel that the Warriors feel the same, they do and it's a series we have all been waiting for.

Until Tuesday night, when Paul's Rockets beat Utah 112-102 to win that West semifinal in five games. Houston did a far better job limiting the Warriors' looks off those actions in their two wins. They'll be an upper-end team in the hopelessly steep Western Conference. Paul scored or assisted on the Rockets' final 18 points, showing off his array of moves in the process. "Got a lot of respect on this side for them".

The Rockets averaged just over 117 points per game against the Warriors in the regular season, but Golden State outscored Houston 353-352 in the three games combined. Houston quickly regrouped, putting the boots to Utah in Game 3 then leading wire to wire in Game 4 before putting the series away with some hot outside shooting late in Game 5. He said, 'You get out the way. However, they returned home and grinded out a 99-91 victory to move on to the next round.

There's a reason it has been billed as the de facto NBA Finals since these teams met for a third time in January.

"However, we got them, aiight".

The Jazz struggled from the 3-point line in the first two periods as Houston turned up the defensive intensity.

Tickets for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 110.3 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 101.6 points on 43 percent shooting.

Speculation has run wild the entire year about who the dominant team might be; and both teams certainly showed their prowess in their second round matchup. The Warriors definitely have the experience in these pressure-filled games, as the Rockets and their stars have yet to achieve any major playoff accomplishment.

Chris Paul is an ultra-intense competitor, often the most passionate player on the court.

Paul had been criticized over the course of his 13-year National Basketball Association career for never getting past the second round in nine previous playoff runs. The last time he made the conference finals the Warriors took his team out in five games. The only thing that stands in their way in my opinion is themselves. The Rockets have a monumental challenge ahead to take out the Warriors. "We're not about to run off talking about how bad we want to play somebody". The Rockets won 65 games this regular season. That is unless they can steal a game on the road.

David Griffin put together the last roster that beat the Warriors in the postseason. As many fans know, Curry is the engine behind Golden State's offense and can really get the team going in spurts. I expect to see the Warriors return to their fourth straight NBA Finals to take on the Boston Celtics or Cleveland Cavaliers for a shot at their third NBA title in four years.
