How one quote set up the Rockets-Warriors clash

View 3 Items

A lot is on the line for both teams and their stars, buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni was all smiles after the Rockets had jettisoned the Jazz from the playoffs, Tuesday night. They have home court advantage. He drilled 13 of his 22 field-goal attempts - including eight straight 3-pointers, capped by a dagger-ish banker to put Houston up nine with 2:30 to go - and distributed 10 assists, hauled in seven rebounds and snagged a steal while logging a team-high 38 minutes without a single turnover.

It picked up in January, when the teams split a pair of games.

Sefolosha, who got into trouble with the league recently after failing a marijuana test, is almost four months into his injury rehab, and is confident of taking to the court next season, after serving his five-game suspension.

Paul did just that on Tuesday by sending the Rockets to the Western Conference Finals with a 41-point, 7-rebound, 10-assist performance. He could win rookie of the year, but the odds are it will go to Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers.

But after Tuesday's semi-final she was overtaken by Cyprus' Eleni Foureira with a catchy pop song entitled "Fuego". Despite speculation Russian Federation would not broadcast the Irish performance, it was shown in full.

The Western Conference duel is set. The Warriors had little problem brushing aside San Antonio in the first round and then had to play a run and gun series with the Pelicans in the conference semifinals.

At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the defending-champion Warriors opened as -185 favorites to win the best-of-seven series against the Rockets which begins Monday in Houston.

"He said you get out of the way ..." However, they returned home and grinded out a 99-91 victory to move on to the next round.

"However, we got them, aiight".

"You've got to play the game now", Green said.

Novartis paid $1.2m to Trump lawyer for policy insights
A lawyer for Columbus Nova has said Vekselberg had nothing to do with the transaction Avenatti said amounted to $500,000. Trump (NOT a lobbying firm) was actively soliciting clients and trying to sell access to the highest office in the land.

For the first time under Steve Kerr, the Warriors will be going on the road for Game 1 of a Western Conference Finals series. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 110.3 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 101.6 points on 43 percent shooting.

Meanwhile, the second-seeded Warriors finished the regular season with a 58-24 record and also made quick work of their early round opponents this playoffs, ending the seasons of the Spurs (4-1) and Pelicans (4-1). While a showdown between two great teams in the playoffs should always stoke the excitement of fans, this matchup is a moral dilemma for fans who have no rooting interest. Andre Iguodala missed both of the Warriors-Rockets games Harden played in, so he will be an option as well, but Thompson has fared well and will likely get the assignment to start the series.

It's been a long time coming for Chris Paul.

This is a series where James Harden can get redemption for his lack of playoff performances, where Chris Paul can finally beat Steph and advance to the NBA Finals for the first time, where Kevin Durant can bolster his legacy, and Where Steph Curry can have that epic playoff performance that many believe he's yet to have. The last time he made the conference finals the Warriors took his team out in five games.

The NBA champions and Houston, will decide the West victor, and the finalist of the world's premier basketball championship ahead of the Eastern Conference champion, who has only one known finalist, the Cleveland Cavaliers, runners-up in 2017.
