The Warriors Send the Rockets Home In 6 Games.
Well Everybody, Here We Go Again. The Golden State Warriors Are Back In the NBA Wester Conference Finals AGAIN!!!!. The Warriors Beat the Houston Rockets 118-113 To Advance for the Fifth Straight Year.
And this Comes Despite the Fact that Kevin Durant, The Warriors Superstar Was Not Able To Play Due To an Injury On His ACL.
Steph Curry Stepped Up in His Team Leaders Absence as He went On a 33 Point Tear, Despite Being Shutout in the First-Half With No Points at All. Klay Thompson, The Big Man Came Through with 27 Big Points, Don't Forget About Him.
Golden State Head Coach Talked to Curry's Parents After the Game and Said the Following.
"You Have a Son Who Can Get the Job Done When He Needs To. And Yes You Are A Wonderful Family, And I am Proud Of Him and The Way He Was Brought Up."
Steph Curry Told Reporters After the Game, " We Won And Were Not Going Anywhere anytime Soon and If anybody Thinks We're Not Going to the NBA Finals, THINK AGAIN, Because this Team Is Full Of All Stars and Yes I Said It."
Here's How the Rockets Did In Game 6 In a Losing Effort.
James Harden Played His Heart Out with 35 Points in the Game. He Couldn't Get Passed the Warriors Dynasty and That's The Truth. But His Play Was Not Overlooked. Chris Paul, He had 27 Points But The Struggles for CP3 in the Postseason Showed Once Again.
Houston Rockets Coach Mike D'antoni Said this Afterwards.
" This Loss Hurts Plenty, We Had Chance After Chance to Win, But When You Get Beat On the Fastbreak and You Get Dominated By the Dynasty You Have No Chance. And I am Disappointed about the Loss."
The Rockets Are Going Home Again After Losing to Golden State, Now Here's My Take. The Rockets Are Done For the Season After Losing to Golden State for the 4th Time In 5 Seasons and They Were Eliminated at Home For the 3rd Straight Year.The Rockets are Now 0-3 Against the Golden State Warriors Under Mike D'antoni In Deciding Games. And that would have Me Concerned. Do the Houston Rockets Need to Make Some Trades During the Offseason, That's a Thought For Starters. But With the Team the Rockets Have Who Would The Rockets Want to Trade For, Now That's a Hard Question. But that's For the Offseason, But For Now The Houston Rockets Are Going Home Again.
Now As Far As the Golden State Warriors Go, They Are Back In the NBA Western Conference Finals for the 5th Straight Year. The Last Time that Happened You Have to go back to the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers From 1982-89 That's The Last time a Feat Like that Happened In the NBA. Not Even Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls Dynasty Teams Of the 90'S didn't Even Accomplish that Feat. Now How Did the Golden State Warriors Do it, Well Think about the Fast Break Points for a Moment. In Game 1-5 The Warriors Averaged 19.5 Points on the Fast Break. In Game 6 The Warriors Used the Fast Break as they had 33 Points in that Department. Steph Curry Went on a 23 Point Crazy barrage and 16 of those Points Came in the Final 4:00 Minutes Of the Game.
What's Next For the Golden State Warriors In their Effort To 3-Peat as NBA World Champions, They Await The Winner of Game Seven Between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trailblazers. And the Bottom Line Is Golden State Will Have their Hands Full In the NBA West Finals.
