Vegas Play of the Day: Warriors at Rockets

Shaq plays police chief for a day Houston Rockets Drop Game 1 WCF to Warriors in Houston

Thompson buried nine of his 18 shots for 28 points.

The Golden State Warriors began a playoff series on the road for the first time since 2014, but they had no trouble getting a win, as they took down the Houston Rockets, 119-106 in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Kevin Durant scored 37 points to lead the Warriors to victory.

Most of the stars came ready to play.

"If that's the game plan they want to stick with, my job is just to make it as tough as possible", said Curry, who had 18 points.

Houston used a 9-3 spurt, where James Harden scored five, to cut the lead to 103-96 with less than five minutes to go. He all but mocks a Rockets defense that left him beyond wide open on four of those triples.

However, the Warriors can live with Harden's scoring if they can keep him from creating open looks for the Rockets' 3-point shooters.

For the most part, we've seen a lot of blowout games throughout the course of the season but something like that is not going to happen against the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets stormed out with a 21-12 lead with 5:12 left in the first quarter, but the Warriors remained composed enough to respond back.

For a coach like Mike D'Antoni, who patented his seven seconds or less offense with the Suns, this team is the polar opposite. With 2:30 remaining in the fourth quarter and down by 10 points, the Rockets made it clear through their play that they had no interest in making a late push.

The Houston Rockets started out the game with guns a-blazing as they seriously pumped up to partake in what I hope will continue to be competitive series.

After one game, it's already apparent that this style isn't sustainable to beat the Warriors. Draymond Green picked up a technical foul a little over a minute into the game.

Chris Paul didn't have a bad game with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

Curry returned from almost six months sidelined with a sprained left knee to play the final four games of a five-game semifinal series against New Orleans.

The result of their regular season series with the Rockets (2-1, Houston) didn't matter. Capela was the lone presence in the paint for the Rockets. "He can get you a bucket as well as anybody on earth". "We've got this far doing that and having that mindset, so we're just going to continue with it".
