This one is going to be a tough, uphill battle but you know the series victor is likely a heavy favorite in the NBA Finals.

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.

Houston, Vegas has a problem with your Rockets.

Game 1 tips off Monday in Houston at 6:00 p.m.

Curry returned, after nearly six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury in Game 2, against the Pelicans and was used sparingly by coach Kerr in the initial games. I think the people will have a great time watching that series, because you have great players out there. Kevin Durant added 24 points, six rebounds plus seven assists, Klay Thompson finished with 23 and Draymond Green chipped in 19 points, 14 boards plus nine assists.

Capela serves as the league's leading blocker with 2.8 blocks per game and averages a gnarly 12.2 rebounds per game.

Golden State has won the last two playoff match-ups 4-1, eliminating the Rockets in the opening round in 2016 and in the Western Conference Finals in 2015. The price grew to Warriors -190 in just two hours after it posted. Durant was impressed with Kerr's handling of Curry before he was unleashed for 37 minutes in Game 5 when they wrapped up the series against the Pelicans.

The three Warriors-Rockets games were about as anticipated as any in the regular season: Golden State lost two of the three, and the final combined score of those matchups was Warriors 353, Rockets 352.

In the first quarter of the Warriors' 113-104 win over New Orleans, he took a break from jawing with Rajon Rondo and firing up his team to engage in some levity.

It should matter a little who the Warriors play. He led the way with 28 points. 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.

The Rockets had earlier booked their place in the Conference Finals with a 112-102 win over the Utah Jazz to also take their series 4-1. The 33-year-old's game-winning display left him contemplating his first career appearance in a Conference Finals.

But now we get the matchup we've been waiting for. "Cute love story", James Harden joked. However, Game 5 proved why even four or five role players are worth sacrificing for one superstar. "I'll continue to get better, continue to get my timing right, continue to get back to the normal rotation, the normal minutes I'm out there playing and hopefully won't look back".
