Warriors, Cavaliers favored to reach NBA Finals

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry celebrates his 2-point basket against the New Orleans Pelicans in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Tuesday

You don't know, quite know, if you can do it.

His Rockets teammates saw it a little differently. James is determined to win, and so are Harden, and Curry. "[To have] an opportunity for him that he's never had before".

Let's assume the Celts close out the 76ers on Wednesday night - Boston beat Houston once and lost a close one to the Rockets.

"The performance that Chris put out there - if he didn't make it out this time, something's wrong", Coach Mike D'Antoni said. They are 24-3 overall in six series and have yet to even be pushed to a Game 6.

Houston has been on fire offensively this year-it averages 109.5 points in the playoffs, second only to the Warriors-and it has also been very solid defensively, with only five teams conceding less points per game during the regular season.

Eric Gordon is the best player off the bench for the Rockets.

"It's just fun", he said.

The Warriors have also cruised through the postseason thus far with series wins over the San Antonio Spurs and the New Orleans Pelicans.

On Jan. 4, Paul made 5 of 10 3s against Golden State, and had 28 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists.

Dust lashes Delhi, hail pounds Shimla, five-day alert issued
The Delhi Metro, too, has made a decision to exercise extreme caution in running of trains in the wake of the warning. In the thunderstorm last week, at least 124 people died and more than 300 were injured in northern states.

The NBA Finals start May 31. Not only is Golden State's SRS almost half of what it was the past few seasons, this year marks the first time since 2015 it is lower than its opponent. He would not return to the game, forced to watch the final seven-plus minutes of Utah's season tick away from the sideline. A late push, including a pair of Chris Paul 3-pointers, helped Houston finish the half on an 11-3 run to take a 54-46 lead into the break.

Joe Ingles made a basket for Utah before Paul added another basket to make it 107-98. Rudy Gobert missed 26 games during the regular season because of a knee injury. "But he was not allowing that thing to go back to Utah and he took over offensively".

Yes, I know it's possible the Finals could feature LeBron James in the midst of an unreal playoff run and that Kevin Love was an All-Star. Mitchell was injured on that play and grabbed his left leg.

The Houston Rockets have home-court advantage in the Western Conference finals, but they're still underdogs to the defending champion Golden State Warriors. The Bulls did so from April 27, 1990, to May 21, 1991.

Houston is in the conference finals for the seventh time in franchise history and looking to win its first title since taking back-to-back championships in 1994-95.

Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals matchup between the Warriors and the Rockets will be on Monday night at the Toyota Center.

If the Rockets win the series, it will be due to perimeter defense limiting Curry from sniping beyond the arc and double-teaming Durant down low so he can't drive the paint whenever he chooses.

Houston wins series 4-1. After all, it's clear to everybody who watched Golden State both in the regular season and the postseason that the Dubs did not care much about the first 82 games.

Sunday, May 13: Cleveland at Boston, 3:30 p.m.
