Rockets set to host Warriors in Western Conference Finals

As well as advancing to the Conference Finals for the first time in his career, according to ESPN, the Rockets point guard now joins the legendary Chicago Bulls star as the only two players throughout National Basketball Association history to have accomplished a certain feat.

At the beginning of the season, Daryl Morey set a few goals for the Houston Rockets.

Steph Curry was looking carefree, like the knee injury never happened.

It's been a long time coming.

There has been no team better built to credibly challenge these Warriors since Kevin Durant signed with them in July 2016. Favors bounced back after a pair of injury-plagued seasons and averaged 12.3 points and 7.2 rebounds and accepted a more complementary role this season.

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. In this picture, Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors congratulates Durant #35 after he made a basket against the Minnesota Timberwolves at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California, on January 25, 2018. Durant was impressed with Kerr's handling of Curry before he was unleashed for 37 minutes in Game 5 when they wrapped up the series against the Pelicans. Okay, so it took until the third quarter.

Sources informed the media that Comcast wouldn't make the offer to Fox until the court rules out the decision next month. It is not a solicitation to make any exchange in commodities, securities or other financial instruments.

"Man, we won two championships in three years". The Warriors are playing out of their minds right now, and every key piece looks healthy and energized. He had hoped to replicate his first-round performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but with Rubio out for the series, Mitchell was asked to quarterback the team as the point guard, lead facilitator and primary scorer.

It should matter a little who the Warriors play.

Tickets for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. And Paul, if you somehow haven't heard, will now play in the first conference finals of his 13-year career.

On Tuesday night, with Harden struggling, Chris Paul showed that he is the extra superstar that Houston was previously missing.

The Western Conference Finals get underway in the Lone Star State with the two teams that most expected to be here squaring off. General manager Dennis Lindsey says the team will be focused on internal improvements first during the offseason.

Tucker finished 5 of 7 from behind the arc and helped the Rockets overcome pedestrian efforts from MVP candidate James Harden, who totaled 18 points on 7-of-22 shooting, and Eric Gordon, who missed 6 of 8 shots and had five points. "He went out there and took over the game". "It throws a lot of these groups off, but for us, we've got a versatile group that can play different ways".
