We've been waiting for Warriors-Rockets for what feels like forever

"They were watching something of us".
Golden State has won two of the last three National Basketball Association titles, while the Rockets haven't been to the Conference finals since 2015. Both teams had their full allotment of stars on January 20, when the Rockets beat the Warriors 116-108.
However, Houston is now listed as a two-point favorite over Golden State in Game 1 of the series, which will be Monday at 9:00 p.m. ET on TNT. But after missing almost six weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, Curry clocked in for four games of the second round against the Pelicans. Mitchell also developed an ability to take over games offensively late in the season, giving the Jazz a boost at critical times.
The Golden State Warriors went with their "Death Lineup" again in Game 5. Rudy Gobert turned in his best game of the series with 12 points, nine boards, and five blocks. It wasn't until the Warriors were plagued with major injuries towards the end of the regular season that it became clear the Rockets would have the home-court advantage in any potential playoff matchup.
The buildup for this series truly began in February, with some pointed comments from Golden State's Draymond Green. Having reached the Finals in each of the past three seasons and won two world titles in that span, the Warriors are on the verge of a modern-day dynasty. The Warriors Community Foundation will donate $15,000 to the charity Durant chose, Oakland Elizabeth House, which provides residences to women and children who have been homeless or faced violence or addiction.
So far this postseason, with Durant and Green leading the way, the Warriors have admirably defended the slower San Antonio Spurs and now the imposing, push-the-pace Pelicans. He had hoped to replicate his first-round performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but with Rubio out for the series, Mitchell was asked to quarterback the team as the point guard, lead facilitator and primary scorer.
Game 1 of the Western Conference finals between the Rockets and Warriors is set for Monday in Houston. General manager Dennis Lindsey says the team will be focused on internal improvements first during the offseason.
13 years into his career, CP3 makes the conference finals for the first time. However, Game 5 proved why even four or five role players are worth sacrificing for one superstar. "Timing can still get a little better with the ball, things like that, when you start to get so excited.I continue to get better, continue to get my timing right and continue to get back to the normal rotations, normal, you know, minutes that I'm out there playing, and hopefully won't look back". We got them. Got to go out and play.
Despite giving up a two-goal lead, the Bolts stole the game back in overtime to post a 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins in Game 4 . The games that got away from us we turned a few too many pucks over, didn't spend enough time in the ozone, fed their transition.
