"With that being said, Houston, the majority of the (conference finals) series, they did a very good job defensively following game plan discipline". Kevin Durant scored 34 points, Curry sparked another third-quarter turnaround, and the Warriors earned a fourth straight trip to the National Basketball Association finals by beating the Houston Rockets 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night. He has averaged 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game in the playoffs.

But the two meshed nicely and helped the Rockets to a 3-2 lead in the conference finals before Paul's season ended with a hamstring injury in Game 5. Cleveland is an inferior defensive team to Houston, and Durant should have more opportunities to make things happen, both for himself and for his teammates.

Even he won't be able to save the Cavs this time.

But having come so far this year, the Rockets are determined to bounce back next season and go one better.
