Warriors advance Western Conference Finals

Warriors advance Western Conference Finals

"Timing could still get a little bit better with the ball and things like that when you start to get so excited, still when I'm out there missing six weeks is still appreciative of being out there playing". Both teams had their full allotment of stars on January 20, when the Rockets beat the Warriors 116-108.

Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will tip off at 9 p.m. ET on May 14 at Toyota Center in Houston.

Curry returned, after nearly six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury in Game 2, against the Pelicans and was used sparingly by coach Kerr in the initial games. When it's May and buckets are hard to come by and everyone is running on fumes, you need a superstar to take over the game. Harden, whose only trip to the Finals came with Oklahoma City in 2012 when the Durant-Russell Westbrook Thunder lost to Miami, had the worst finish of any star player in the 2017 playoffs in the second-round loss to San Antonio. He added eight assists and seven rebounds in Game 5. The Golden State Warriors have a date with the Houston Rockets. After just a few hours of posting, it increased to -190 for the Warriors. It will only be the seventh game this season in which the Warriors have been the underdogs. Recently, Mitchell revealed that he intends to take his game to the next level by watching all 97 games from the season prior to the September workout. "We used to play AA basketball against each other when we were 10, 11 years old". The Warriors are playing out of their minds right now, and every key piece looks healthy and energized. This will be Chris Paul's first-career Conference Finals appearance, so that's (another) interesting storyline to keep an eye out for.

Can he lead the team to the Finals? Teamed with James Harden in Houston this season, Paul let someone else quarterback the squad.

There was a late scare for Kerr's side, however, as the Pelicans staged a late rally, stitching together an 18-2 spurt to close within seven points at 107-100 with 1min 43sec left. General manager Dennis Lindsey says the team will be focused on internal improvements first during the offseason.

The Western Conference Finals get underway in the Lone Star State with the two teams that most expected to be here squaring off. "Cute love story", James Harden joked. "I don't know what it's supposed to feel like, but we've still got a lot of work to do". Morey said that he'd like to see the Rockets get the No. 1 seed.

Until this breakthrough, he had played in more playoff games than any player in league history without reaching this point (86).
