Ben Golliver, the 2017-18 Houston Rockets "have won more games, compiled a better point differential, and posted a higher offensive efficiency rating than any Warriors playoff opponent in the Stever Kerr Era".

Curry, who returned for Game 2 after almost six weeks out with a knee injury, knocked down an open 3-pointer midway through the third and raised his hands to get the crowd going, then made another less than two minutes later.


The fit-again Curry played 37 minutes, and was heavily involved in a devastating burst of scoring in the third quarter which ultimately took the game away from the Pelicans.

Durant became irate when Nikola Mirotic made a late, hard bump on a 3-point try with 5:23 left in the first - a play that was reviewed and Mirotic received just a common foul.

Donovan Mitchell, the 13th overall pick, logged in 20.5 points per game, 3.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.5 steals.

It's the second time in four years that Houston and Golden State have met in the West finals; the Warriors ousted the Rockets in five games in 2015 on their way to the National Basketball Association title. After just a few hours of posting, it increased to -190 for the Warriors. They'll also need to temper the indeterminable impact of Green for the Warriors, who has spent a lot of time facilitating for Golden State this postseason, and do what the Pelicans couldn't and find a solution for Durant. 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.


But now, as these two franchises square up again on the same stage three years later, the Rockets are much different and much more unsafe. Every team gets frustrated with Harden's free-throw attempt numbers, so the onus will be on Green and, to a lesser extent, Durant to limit him.

"We want to win another championship", Green said, "and it don't matter who's in the way of that". And it begins Monday night in Houston.

However, it was a positive experience for the team led by Mitchell, who averaged 24.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game in the postseason as a rookie.

"What we did, if we can stay healthy and keep our group together, I think we can be a really, really good team", Ingles said. "Cute love story", James Harden joked.


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