Heavyweights of the Western Conference collide as Golden State Warriors host their meanest adversary in Houston Rockets in the first game of the semi-finals of the NBA on Sunday.
Golden State Warriors had to work harder than anticipated in the first round of the playoffs as they got past the LA Clippers. They had to dig deep and prove it to themselves why they are a championship contender. Kevin Durant has been in sensational form, and he will be looking to keep this up in order to get past a side that has been touted as the ideal Kryptonite for them. It will be interesting to see how they fare against a side against whom they have lost three games out of four in the regular season.
Meanwhile, Houston Rockets were the fourth seed and also were the only side last year to drag the Warriors to a seven-game series. They have one of the best players ever in James Harden, who has been spectacular form. He is unstoppable and will be fired up to take on the biggest challenge. The playstyle they have adopted is the most ideal to get past these juggernauts, and this sets up an intriguing encounter.
