Chris Paul Makes Conference Finals for the First Time

Chris Paul Makes Conference Finals for the First Time

The teams own the top five spots in terms of highest average asking price for Conference Final home games since 2011.

This series has everything. The ball is in Harden's hands the majority of Rocket games, which seems counter-productive for any team that has the Point God. While clearly not as sexy as a declarative statement, even if possibly overlooking Golden State's talent a bit, that's a question far more fitting for a series featuring not just one great team, but two. You know, the one about if the Rockets can defeat the Warriors to get to the NBA Finals. Mitchell averaged 20.5 PPG 3.7 RPG and APG during the regular season. They say they're just getting started and will only get better from here. "I'm going to put us on my back", James Harden said.

"There was a good team in there somewhere, we just didn't know to what degree", Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said Wednesday as the team prepared to head into the offseason. "Even in the beginning of the year when I got here, it was just thinking a lot, trying to be flawless, trying to make the right play rather than just being aggressive, so I'm continuing to watch film, working out with the coaches and finding myself again slowly". All of the wins by both teams were on the road.

Whichever team comes out of this series will open as heavy favorites in the NBA Finals, as the Rockets and Warriors have the best odds to win it all of the four remaining teams. "Alright, now let's get it. Let's get to it now". But those Warriors are dead and in their place we have these new Warriors who have destroyed any semblance of the NBA's balance of power due to the addition of Kevin Durant. Mitchell remained in a crouch on the other end, pointing to the back of his left leg. There are scorers such as Eric Gordon and Gerald Green off the bench, plus an energy big in Nene behind Capela - who has grown by leaps and bounds as the season has progressed.

Paul had been criticized over the course of his 13-year National Basketball Association career for never getting past the second round in nine previous playoff runs.

Golden State might welcome the rest, considering their most important player has only competed in four postseason games because of an injury. Upon returning home, the Warriors handled the Pelicans easily and closed them out in Game 5 by a final score of 113-104.

"Obviously you want to build your team to beat the defending champs because that's usually how you've got to go to get a championship, the way you've got to go". "We're not about to run off talking about how bad we want to play somebody". And with five days before Game 1, the anticipation will only grow - as will the opportunities for both sides to get their licks in. All that matters now is that the Rockets find a way to win the championship. If you in the way of that, you happen to be in the way. All was forgotten after winning the next three games by double digits themselves, setting up the showdown that begins this upcoming weekend.

Paul was instrumental in building a halftime advantage for the Rockets, snapping a 43-all tie with two free throws before drilling consecutive 3s inside the final minute of the first half.
