The Houston Rockets will be forced to make history. They will attempt to be the first NBA team in history to come back from a three-game deficit to win a conference final. They have been in four elimination games in the playoff. The Rockets lost to the Warriors in seven out of seven games this year. But making gambling news, the Rockets have already done it once already to get to this game. Although the Warriors have played well, Houston hasn’t been able to capitalize off of the few mistakes that Golden State has made. After such a humiliating defeat, the Rockets would have to repeat what they’ve already done. A 128-115 Houston victory was a good start.

Well this game started to look like a possible repeat of game three. All that energy Houston had almost went against them as they missed on the first two drives up court. After 9-0, Coach Steve Kerr called a time out to talk and break the Rocket momentum. The Rockets ended up looking very hot while the Warriors were 1-8 from the field. The whole Houston team came to play and made it rain before Harden made a single point.

In the first 27 Rocket points, Harden had yet to contribute. A couple of free throws finally put Harden into it. Josh Smith also had an excellent contribution to the offense. The Golden State defense, distracted by Harden, allowed the rest of the Rockets to dominate. After the first quarter, five Rocket players had made at least one three-pointer. That sports stat alone could’ve earned someone a gambling bonus.

The first quarter, 75% shooting and at 45-22, was the highest scoring quarter by Houston all season. Coach Steve Kerr replied to the question concerning his team by saying “they’ve scored 45 points in 12 minutes. We have many problems.” Dwight Howard got the ball in good faith and he was able to contribute while having a sound inside presence defensively.

Jason Terry and Curry were still impressive as the Warriors stayed in the game. Klay Thompson, for Golden State finally showed a pulse in the second quarter. At 5.52 in the second quarter Curry, in mid air going for a block, fell over Trevor Ariza and landed on his head creating shock and awe among the crowd. After seven minutes on standby, Curry got up to cheers by the Houston Crowd.

As Kerr tries to keep it together for his team in Curry’s absence, the Warriors went on a run cutting the 25-point lead to 13. The 8-0 run by Golden State was without Curry’s presence. Harden was a bit docile at that moment with the Rocket team shooting at 65%.
The Warriors were within 12 of the Rockets until Trevor Ariza got the foul and finished a four-point play. Leandro Barbosa responded with 3-pointers that kept Golden State alive.

Thompson’s 16 points put a serious dent into the Rockets lead. In the second half, Josh Smith continued his run of 7-7 shots. The Warrior’s Draymond Green who was consistently putting up points was perhaps the strongest factor during Curry’s absence. Harden’s 16 points in the third quarter made a statement that nothing, including Curry’s return to the floor, was going to stop Houston.

The Warriors were able to cut the lead to a solid 10 points while Harden was on the bench. Klay Thompson drove in a three-pointer and got Golden State within 7. Harden was slowly heating up while Curry showed more steam. A Rockets 7-0 run forced Coach Kerr to call another time out for the Warriors. Josh Smith had a solid performance.

Both teams had a combined 34 three-point shots which set a new record in playoff history. Those who waged for the Rockets deserved their money earned within the confines of gambling laws. James Harden, who ended with a 45-point game, spoke of his team’s performance “We had to do a better job at being consistent. And tonight it showed.”
