Rockets hold off Mitchell, Jazz to win series

Donovan Mitchell regrets comment about James Harden'Obviously he's the MVP

Can the Warriors play tighter defense like they did against the Spurs against the Rockets or will they find themselves in another up and down the floor type of series here?

"Every series you play, it gets harder and harder and harder", said Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who is seeking a fourth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals and his third ring in four years. The Rockets own a 121-92 edge in regular season wins and took two of three this season, including a 116-108 home win in the last matchup January 20. The Golden State Warriors have a date with the Houston Rockets. Is anyone shocked? No.

Kim Jong-un and Xi Jinping hold surprise second summit
The North Korean official flew in a private plane and arrived at Dalian airport on Monday amid heavy security, Yonhap said . Xi and Kim had a surprise Wuhan-style informal summit at the northeastern port city of Dalian yesterday and today.

It's going to be a highly entertaining and dramatic conference finals starting this coming Monday in Houston. Facing off against Steve Kerr's versatile and ever-evolving roster, Houston's predictable frontcourt serves as premier prey in a possible seven-game series. "It didn't because of the guys we got in our locker room and in our coaching staff". You can't take that away from them. Before Durant arrived, Paul's Clippers outlasted Golden State in seven games during the 2014 first round. 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. Then the one (Chris Paul) shot up against the backboard.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell led Utah with 24 points but departed with an injury at the 7:09 mark of the fourth quarter and did not return. About a minute later, he found P.J. With a little pep in his step, Paul started scoring from all over the court. That 3-pointer put Houston up by nine points with just over two minutes remaining and it zapped whatever energy that Utah still had left in the tank. Paul scored a career-playoff high of 41 points, while Tucker scored 19. Paul also joined Michael Jordan as the only players in National Basketball Association history to finish with at least 40 points and 10 assists in a series-clinching win.

Given that a gambler could make way more money betting on the Rockets with how things now are with Westgate, the Rockets might be the conventionally safer bet from that perspective. 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. Yet, Houston still scored 112 points and won by double-digits.

"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.
