Western Conference finals set for Warriors-Rockets: 2018 NBA Playoffs rewind

  • Monson Donovan Mitchell the Terrific not the Terrible is what the Jazz will take from 2017-18 season

This is the first Western Conference Finals for the childhood friends.

Holiday contributed 27 points and 11 assists, but even with better shooting, New Orleans couldn't stay with deep, score-at-will Golden State.

The over/under on Game 1 opened at 225.5 and Houston is a 2-point favorite in that contest.

Or in June, when the Rockets landed Chris Paul.

The team's fortunes crashed when Mitchell aggravated a left foot injury with seven minutes to go in the game and hobbled to the locker room.

This series has everything. After one of those victories, Rockets center Clint Capela added fuel to the fire, saying about the Warriors: "We're better than them".

Melanoma Monday, free screenings offered
New research shows when melanoma is caught in the earliest stage, survival chances are much higher. Darker skin does contain more melanin which protects skin but only to a certain extent.

Today, however, we received further statistical proof that this Houston Rockets team will be unlike anything the Warriors have seen before. That means the two teams will both have six days off after closing out their respective second-round series. After the third and final meeting, Capela told ESPN what the Rockets were thinking. They got us we got them. Yet, the Warriors sounded mindful and understanding of the tug-and-pool Curry and the coaching staff faced in accelerating his progress without overwhelming him.

The team posted a parody on its social media accounts late Tuesday night after sending the Jazz packing. What did he say?

"Especially for an opportunity he's never had, he went to go get it", said Harden. "That's all fine and dandy in January. And I like to get in my sweet spot and go to work". 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.

And right now, the Warriors are on another level defensively - posting the league's best defensive rating in the first two rounds of the playoffs. He led the way with 28 points.

"We have guys that can do multiple things", Durant said. There are scorers such as Eric Gordon and Gerald Green off the bench, plus an energy big in Nene behind Capela.

The 33-year-old scored 20 points in the fourth quarter, answering everything the Jazz tried to do in order to close out the game and series. He's the first player in playoff history to have at least 40 points and 10 assists without a turnover since turnovers became an official statistic in 1977-78, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

China reiterates foreign enterprises' respect for its sovereignty, territorial integrity
As of Monday afternoon, the post had attracted more than 23,000 comments, majority critical of the US. It wasn't clear what China had demanded Qantas do, or what the penalties for non-compliance might be.

The NBA has been anticipating a 2018 Western Conference Finals matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets for months.

This season the Rockets won the series two games to one.

But how this Houston season will be remembered hinges largely on the outcome of this series.

Five months later, this clash of titans has finally arrived. "We want to win another championship, and it don't matter who's in the way of that".

It's been a long time coming for Paul, who has played 86 playoff games without ever appearing in the third round, the most in National Basketball Association history. However, we got them. It all seemed to align with Morey's admission in December that the question "How do we beat the Warriors?" is "the only thing" the Rockets think about.
