Reigning NBA champ Warriors face season-best Rockets in West final

To watch the Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets NBA Western Conference final round Game One matchup live stream online from Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, access the streaming video provided by Watch TNT at this link, or by downloading the Watch TNT app to watch a live stream on mobile devices. The Rockets, who beat the Timberwolves in five games to advance, lost to the Spurs last season, and Utah was eliminated by Golden State.

Curry knows the Rockets will attempt to get him to switch onto Harden or Chris Paul. Both teams are among the league's best first-quarter teams.

This series has everything.

With Tim Kawakami, we break down this series, which begins tonight in Houston. "They're either going to have to slow it down, abandon the isolation, abandon something that they typically do all the time because that's just the nature of winning a championship".

The Celtics have been dealing with injuries all season long, but as the first two series have shown, Boston is doing just fine without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward in it's lineup.

When asked if his Golden State Warriors were ready for their much anticipated playoff showdown with the Houston Rockets, head coach Steve Kerr wasted few words in answering. After the third and final meeting, Capela told ESPN what the Rockets were thinking. "We need to do a better job of staying up mentally".

Those comments have sat in the minds of the Warriors for five months.


Draymond Green on getting the technical so early: "I was a bit overzealous, a bit amped up, but I'd rather that any day than coming out flat". What did he say? According to NBA.com stats, Harden led the league with 877 points off isolations during the regular season, with Cleveland's LeBron James (500) the only player who scored even half as many points on such plays.

"That's all fine and dandy in January". Comparing the present-day Warriors to 2015-16 doesn't just hold them to an insane standard (as if you care about being fair to those cheating scoundrels!), it detracts from a time in basketball that, for many of us, was extraordinary. "We're not about to run off talking about how bad we want to play somebody", Green said.

While no team can match Golden State's star power, Houston have managed to close the gap by adding maestro Chris Paul to MVP frontrunner James Harden. A Trevor Ariza three-pointer would tie the game at 41 with 7:36 remaining in half but Kevin Durant would respond with two baskets giving the Warriors a four-point first-half lead which would swell to seven points on back-to-back Steph Curry layups.

A narrative has emerged that Houston are also the hungrier team, with Harden and Paul having yet to win a title while several of the Warriors' key players have two to their name. Let's go get another one.

There's a reason it has been billed as the de facto NBA Finals since these teams met for a third time in January.

"Physically, other than (backup guard) Patrick McCaw's injury, we're in good shape", Kerr said. Here's the six players we are using for the contest.

And if you put money on the Warriors at the Golden Nugget, then congratulations! My problem is that, ever since they signed Durant, it feels like we're being denied a full glimpse at what this team is capable of. It don't matter to us who we play. They've got three great scorers.
