Rockets, Warriors advance to Western Conference finals

Happy Hour is Back for Western Conference Finals Game 1

These two teams were the frontrunners in the Western Conference going back to the beginning of the season.

This series has everything.

This off-season won't be like past year with the Gordon Hayward circus, but the longest tenured player on the team, Derrick Favors will be an unrestricted free agent.

Golden State will be playing in the Western Conference finals for the fourth straight year, having advanced to the NBA Finals each of the previous three seasons and winning titles in 2017 and 2015. "Know what I'm saying?" They got us we got them.

On a night when Harden went 7-for-22 from the field for 18 points - Paul later said Harden was under the weather - Paul did exactly what Houston brought him into do. "They are playing incredible and I'm not even a Rockets fan", McFadden said.

"There was a good team in there somewhere, we just didn't know to what degree", Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said Wednesday as the team prepared to head into the offseason. He put us all back and said, 'Listen, I got us.' That's big time right there.

The Swiss-South African, who had been out since January after knee surgery, told KweséESPN that the team's relatively surprising season was a clear indication of future gains: "I think with the talent level that we have. we have Donovan who is super young and he's going to keep improving". They finished second in the conference, seven games back of the Houston Rockets, and with the third-best record in the National Basketball Association this season behind the Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets. He went to go get it.

"We are better than them". Throw in long, lanky perimeter defenders such as Mbah a Moute, Tucker and Trevor Ariza to throw at Durant - not to mention bomb away from three-point range the other end. He scored or assisted on 29 of the Jazz's 32 points in that quarter.

Meanwhile in Texas, Chris Paul scored 41 points as Houston made sure of their place in the conference finals. The seeds are flipped this time, after Houston finished the regular season with the league's best record. Upon returning home, the Warriors handled the Pelicans easily and closed them out in Game 5 by a final score of 113-104.

So now it's time for every Houston Rockets fan to proudly show their love for their point guard.

The nxt round was another cakewalk for the defending champions as they took on a surprising New Orleans Pelicans team that swept the Portland Trailblazers in the first round.

The Houston series may have played out differently has Rubio been able to play.

"We just advanced in another series which is an accomplishment, but that's not our main goal", Trevor Ariza said. Curry and Paul can go blow for blow while Harden and Klay Thompson do the same, and these games are going to be won around the perimeter. 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. We want to win another championship and it don't matter who is in the way of that. However, Golden State quickly ended their Cinderella story by dominating them in five games.

It's all we've been asking for.
