Average ticket price for Warriors-Rockets series highest ever for Conference Finals

May 11 03:02 2018

As the Warriors deconstruct Houston’s two iso-heavy players, the Rockets will need to make a critical roster expansion to redeem their suppressed offense. “We want to win another championship, and it don’t matter who’s in the way of that”. Instead it was the wily veteran, who gave us glimpses of the Paul we fell in love with early in his career in New Orleans. The veteran had seven points and seven rebounds in the first half. The Cavs are favored to win the series at -280, while the Celtics are underdogs at +235. He is different from (Rockets shooting guard) James (Harden).

It’s the second time in four years that Houston and Golden State have met in the West final; the Warriors ousted the Rockets in five games in 2015 on their way to the National Basketball Association title. This will be Chris Paul’s first-career Conference Finals appearance, so that’s (another) interesting storyline to keep an eye out for. Donovan Mitchell is going to be a star for a long time in this league. He put us all on his back and said listen: “‘I got us'”.

This is the team the Warriors will face Monday in Houston for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

They upset the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first-round of the playoffs in six games and they lost in five games in the second-round against the Houston Rockets, but the Jazz played them tough. The Rockets have a monumental challenge ahead to take out the Warriors. Paul was seen as a ideal point guard for head coach Mike D’Antoni’s run-and-gun system, but how would he handle splitting ball-handling duties with Harden?

“You have to be nearly ideal in what you do and we weren’t good enough to overcome the level of talent they have on the court”.

GAME 4: Tuesday, May 22 at Golden State, 6 p.m. The Rockets are capable of shooting much better from the field and Harden can be much more consistent. In the last game of the season for the Jazz, before hobbling his foot, Mitchell singlehandedly brought the Jazz back against a mighty Houston team with his smorgasbord of moves and shots.

The Rockets run a revival of the ultimate two-man show with Chris Paul and James Harden posing as the league’s most unexpected – yet lucrative – backcourt.

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. Finally in their third match up, the Warriors were without Iguodala again and the Rockets were without Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green.

Jrue Holiday chipped in with a 27-point, 10-rebound, 11-assist triple-double for the sixth-seeded Pelicans, who had swept the third-seeded Portland Trail Blazers in the first round.
