Golden State Warriors Second Round Breakout Player

Golden State Warriors Draymond Green celebrates a score against the Houston Rockets with Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry during a game on Dec. 1 2016 in Oakland Calif

Their clash has been so anticipated, some are calling it the "real" NBA Finals, owing to the strength of teams in the Western Conference.

It certainly does not disappoint. You've got to go out there and play. Cleveland swept Toronto, while Houston, Golden State and the Celtics all prevailed by 4-1 counts.

Donovan Mitchell scored 25 before fouling out and Joe Ingles had 15 for the Jazz.

It will be Houston's second trip to the Western Conference finals in four years and the first ever for Paul. He is someone who could be starting on many different teams and who can destroy the opposing bench. Remarkably, the four teams that played on opening night are the final four standing at the end of the season. The Boston Celtics are down their two all-star players but are one of the last teams standing in the National Basketball Association.

The first half was largely dominated by the Rockets, although as they have all series Utah's defensive resiliency helped them go on runs to sustain their chance of avoiding elimination. He's fifth in playoff wins with 152, behind only Derek Fisher (161), Tim Duncan (157), Robert Horry (155) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (154). Paul was the ideal complement to Harden to help bear more of the offensive load.

Davis had 34 points and 19 rebounds for a Pelicans team that overcame the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending torn Achilles tendon three months ago to make this strong run.

Sunday, May 20: Houston at Golden State, 8 p.m.

Southampton's EPL spot not safe yet, says Hughes
If there is one team in this league who have the capability of scoring a lot of goals, it's Man City". The reports said the Swansea board did not plan to renew Carvalhal's contract.

Instead, the Warriors coach is confident his team have the advantage of knowing exactly what it takes to win a championship. The Los Angeles Lakers have made The Finals on 31 occasions (winning 16 titles), and the Celtics have gone 21 times (winning a league-high 17 titles). You can build your team, obviously you want to build your team to beat the defending champs because that's usually what you've got to do to get a championship.

With a now healthy and engaged roster, the Warriors enter Houston, Texas with a full deck. Whoever is in the way of that goal, then we got to see you. Regardless, they could wind up adding to a recent trend. James is No. 2 on the all-time list with 346 playoff 3-pointers. Allen played in 171, and James has played in 228.

Both Houston and Golden State concluded their semifinal series Tuesday night. Golden State is 24-3 in the playoffs since signing Durant. The Dubs realized the urgency to win a playoff series without Curry and ramped up their defensive intensity.

That's even more pronounced in this round.

After his team clinched a spot in the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green sounded ready for the next challenge.

Houston returns to the conference finals for the first time since 2015. Curry bucketed 28 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists over 37 minutes in his last effort, which resulted in a series-clinching 113-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. This time around, James saw a switch flip and it was game over from there. EG is also shooting just 38% on 2-point attempts, way down from his 54% in the regular season. They will get their opportunities to shine just by LeBron's presence, but they must be careful in this series.
