Chris Paul Makes Conference Finals for the First Time

The past six months have been a prelude for the next two weeks.

The Rockets went 2-1 against the Warriors in the regular season, but the game they lost deserves a bit of an asterisk because neither James Harden nor Kevin Durant participated.

Today, however, we received further statistical proof that this Houston Rockets team will be unlike anything the Warriors have seen before.

It's the second time in four years that Houston and Golden State have met in the West finals; the Warriors ousted the Rockets in five games in 2015 on their way to the National Basketball Association title.

"The first two games here, we've gotten production out of the bottom of the order and that sets up nicely for the top of the order", Hinch said.

A ticket to see the Warriors at home in the West Finals has the highest asking price of the decade - $976 - while a ticket to see the Rockets at home ranks second at $957.

These two teams were the frontrunners in the Western Conference going back to the beginning of the season. In the post-game conference Tuesday night, Rockets point guard Chris Paul talked about his long-time relationship with PJ Tucker. After taking care of New Orleans in five games, Golden State will face Houston in the Western Conference finals.

This series has everything. "I think the team showed the character that we had". You know, this is a great opportunity for us.

At one point, it seemed like a sure thing that Derrick Favors would go elsewhere when he became a free agent after the season. "I think I'm not supposed to say that, but we're basically obsessed with, 'How do we beat the Warriors?'" "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". "Keep doubting, we only getting better from this", Gobert wrote.

"That's all fine and dandy in January". We got them. Got to go out and play. Both Green and Paul should be at the center of that.

Vegas is already favoring the Golden State Warriors, according to ESPN.com.

The Jazz won 29 of their final 35 regular-season games to claim a playoff spot. Before looking ahead to the Western Conference Finals, let's look back at the season series between the two juggernauts (which the Rockets won 2-1). The Houston Rockets general manager wanted a piece of the Warriors along. However, Game 5 proved why even four or five role players are worth sacrificing for one superstar.

On one side, you have three Warriors All-Stars who are now four years into this dominating run with Curry, Thompson and Green. The disappointing part is this usually means the younger generation of fans want to know how great those players were. If you're in the way of that, then you happen to be in the way. It don't matter to us who we play. "We get to it now".

It's all we've been asking for.
