National Basketball Association playoffs 2018: Vegas favors Warriors to win series over Rockets

James Harden Donovan Mitchell NBA Playoffs 2018: Chris Paul Determined To Win First NBA Championship Title

"My mom used to say to me, 'man, Donovan, you're good.' I'd be like, alright, thank you but moms are supposed to say that". And Chris Paul himself has lost 13 of his past 15 games against the Warriors.

The buildup for this series truly began in February, with some pointed comments from Golden State's Draymond Green. 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. Both teams had their full allotment of stars on January 20, when the Rockets beat the Warriors 116-108.

Starting Monday, Houston strives to dethrone Golden State as the Western Conference champions, while the Warriors look to dominate the West for the fourth year in a row. "We know they are ready, and we'll be ready for them". "I think that if we're doing what we're supposed to do on defense - all the switches, the weak side - and keep playing our offense by keeping that mentality all game long, we have the weapons to beat them". Pretty forgettable. The Warriors were massive favorites and played like it.

On top of that, the Rockets won two of three games against the Warriors during the regular season, when the Warriors were the favorites in all three. It's an unwritten rule that closeout games are the most hard to win, and with James Harden under the weather, Chris Paul earned his entire season's pay in Game 5.

There has been no team better built to credibly challenge these Warriors since Kevin Durant signed with them in July 2016. Cleveland has advanced to the Eastern Conference finals and is awaiting the victor of the conference semifinals series between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, with Boston up 3-1 going into Wednesday night's Game 5 at TD Garden.

Warriors: Green is the first Warrior to ever average a triple-double in a playoff series. He's now a name to remember, the priority of every opposing team's game plan; he is the Jazz in National Basketball Association circles and to followers of the league.

The Westgate opened the over/under on Game 1 at 225.5.

In Paul's 10 seasons after his two OKC years, he averaged 10.2 assists per game but became a sympathetic figure. "It took us a while to figure out things". "You see when you let the dog off the leash what happens". "We'll see who better".

"We're not about to run around like, 'Yeah, we want to play them in the conference finals.' For what?" "We got a little exhausted and a little rattled and we didn't finish the game the way we wanted to".

It's all we've been asking for.
