Stephen Curry Says Championship Experience Helped Warriors Beat Rockets In Game 1

Shaq plays police chief for a day

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) drives to the basket past Houston Rockets guard James Harden (13) during the first half of Game 1 of the NBA basketball Western Conference Finals, Monday, May 14, 2018, in Houston.

The Rockets lost at home for the second time this postseason, giving away their home-court advantage to the defending National Basketball Association champs.

"They took the challenge and played awfully well", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

'This is why anybody would want him on their team. "But tonight, every time we did it, they made the shot".

The fact that they were starting this series away from the friendly confines of Oracle Arena for the first time during their recent run did nothing to shake their belief in themselves.

Stephen Curry added 18 points, six rebounds and eight assists for the Warriors, who were outclassed early but battled back to seize the lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference final, which continues in Houston on Wednesday. "We just tried to take their best punch and keep fighting".

I took a chance and predicted that the Houston Rockets would win this series, and while I never panic after one game, I'm not almost as confident as I was earlier.

"He needs about 55 next time, and that would take care of it", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni quipped.

While it's only Game 1 of the series, you could see that devastation on the faces and in the body language of the Rockets late in Monday's contest.

With every made shot, defensive stop and foul, the Warriors and Rockets showed in 48 minutes why this became an anticipated playoff matchup for almost 10 months.

Trump lays out plan for reducing drug prices
Other parts of the plan were previously released in the president's budget proposal and would require action by Congress. That idea has always been supported by Democrats but is a non-starter for drugmakers and most Republicans in Congress.

"It's just a bunch of stuff we can clean up and we will". "It's nice to be at home but we've got a lot of guys who have been in this league a long time". We can't withstand turning the ball over and giving up so many wide open threes'.

The Rockets rediscovered their offense after that, scoring the next eight points, powered by 3s from Gordon and Gerald Green, to get within 85-80 with about a minute left in the quarter.

It's exactly what the Warriors did to Houston, with Paul and Harden running down the shot clock every single possession.

Durant added two free throws to close out the quarter and leave the Warriors up 87-80 entering the fourth. You could lose a game in the first half by abandoning your game plan just because they hit some tough shots or whatever the case is. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Houston, 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the road team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. They conceded the game to the Warriors.

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".

Harden has been spectacular in all of the Rockets' series openers this postseason, scoring 41 points in Game 1 against the Minnesota Timberwolves, 44 points in Game 1 against the Utah Jazz and 41 points against the Warriors.
