Rockets-Warriors Tickets Are Most Expensive For Conference Final This Decade

  • Green pops off at idea that Warriors have been looking forward to Rockets

May 8: Jrue Holiday passes the ball as David West and Shaun Livingston defend during Game 5. His minutes have increased each game he plays, up to 31 in Game 4 and 37 on Tuesday.

The Warriors guard has since started all the games and said after Game 4 that he was slowly but surely getting his timing back.

"I feel confident in what I'm able to do out there", Curry said. "It throws a lot of these groups off, but for us, we've got a versatile group that can play different ways".

His presence is a game-changer when it comes to the sheer star power in this series.

However, Houston is now listed as a two-point favorite over Golden State in Game 1 of the series, which will be Monday at 9:00 p.m. ET on TNT. The Rockets are healthy as well, though, meaning this is the matchup we've all been waiting for.

"We won two championships in three years", Green said. After just a few hours of posting, it increased to -190 for the Warriors.

On Tuesday night, with Harden struggling, Chris Paul showed that he is the extra superstar that Houston was previously missing.

There has been no team better built to credibly challenge these Warriors since Kevin Durant signed with them in July 2016.

While the Rockets are playing in the Western Conference finals for the second time in four years and first since 2015, the Warriors have been a constant presence in the conference finals as of late. Ricky Rubio wasn't playing after injuring his hamstring in Game 6 of the first round, and Donovan Mitchell left their last game five minutes into the fourth quarter after injuring his leg. A year later, the Warriors were winning the first of two titles since.

Golden State opened as -185 favorites to win the best-of-seven series against Houston, according to the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. The Warriors, come to think of it, might need to wrap it up in six if they're going to pull this off.

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. The Warriors were 29-12 on the road. "We're not about to run off talking about how bad we want to play somebody", Green said, via ESPN. "(We) kind of forget that feeling. "We're looking forward to it, it's a great opportunity and we'll see what happens". "We know they are ready, and we'll be ready for them".

When asked if he is going to celebrate this moment, he said no.

Paul scored 41 points, making eight 3-pointers to go along with seven rebounds, 10 assists and no turnovers in the Rockets' 112-110 series-clinching win over the Jazz on Tuesday.
