Vegas Lists Golden State As Favorite Over Rockets In Western Conference Finals

Jazz shootaround Defense needs to find antidote to Paul Harden Capela for series to continue Vegas Lists Golden State As Favorite Over Rockets In Western Conference Finals

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors will face the Houston Rockets for a place in the National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals after the Western Conference heavyweights wrapped up series wins on Tuesday. Paul then proceeded to slash Utah's season in a fourth quarter to remember. In Game 5, Houston shot 48.2 percent from the field and hit 18 of 39 three point attempts while going 14 of 17 at the line.

It should matter a little who the Warriors play.

However, If I'm forced to be as objective as possible, I don't think I would fervidly dissuade someone from betting on the Rockets.

If one of these teams completely dominates the other, it's going to be a really stunning illustration of just how powerful that victor is. Our team showed great resilience and fought our way to the playoffs.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Restless nights became common for Donovan Mitchell during his rookie season. "That's insane if you think about the turnaround".

Forward Joe Ingles said about Mitchell's rare ability to catch on to anything: "He watches something one time and learns pretty quickly". "It didn't because of the guys we got in our locker room and in our coaching staff".

They're able to flip home court early in this series. If nothing abnormal happens in the series, the stats indicate a likely 7 games with the Rockets ultimately advancing.

"I did everything I could", Rubio said. More importantly, he looked spry and offered no complaints about pain or limitations from the knee.

Davis had 34 points and 19 rebounds for a Pelicans team that overcame the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending torn Achilles tendon three months ago to make this strong run. Now, after a grueling season, he can finally bask in his accomplishments. You can believe the Warriors are a better team all things considered (which I do). "They are playing wonderful and I'm not even a Rockets fan", McFadden said. 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. The seeds are flipped this time, after Houston finished the regular season with the league's best record. "So, it's kind of like a relationship where you've been through so much together, there's no sense in breaking it up".

"We hope to retain him", said general manager Dennis Lindsey.

Game 6 of that series, if necessary, would be Friday in Philadelphia, with a potential Game 7 scheduled for Sunday back in Boston. "It's something new that I obviously haven't gone through".

He's scored more than 40 points in two of their 10 games, but he has an unspectacular true shooting percentage of 55.5% in the postseason and he's been held under 20 points twice in this year's playoff run.
