High Five, warriors!

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets 110-106 in game one of the Western Conference Finals in Oakland, California. These two teams came into the series in impressive fashion with Houston coming out of a two-game deficit with three straight wins and Golden State proving themselves to be the strongest team in the league.

The game ended up being tied at 97-97 deep in the fourth quarter after a James Harden explosion in which he scored 21 points in the second half. Golden State were able to stick to their game and pull through using a smaller offense of wings and guards who could move fluidly in and out of position in the court.

Making online gambling news, The Golden State Warriors excellent regular season performance allowed them to be awarded home court advantage with more games playing at home than away. Warriors still managed to get behind on their own court even though they’ve won 42 out of 45 home games. After trailing by 16 in the second quarter, the Warriors started come back.

The Warriors playing on a smaller line up, had to answer the Rockets by igniting a 25-6 scoring run tied them up at the cusp of half time. In stellar fashion, Livingston scored 10 of the last 12 points during that scoring spree. Coach Steve Kerr, who played with Michael Jordan during his last three championships, was considering the using smaller team.

“We feel like we can always play small. We played small against Memphis, and Memphis is without a doubt the most powerful interior team in terms of offensive post-up stuff and putting pressure on a team.” Kerr hadn’t considered playing small against a big team like Houston. During the regular season, Golden State won all four encounters with Houston by an average of 15.3 points. Kerr commented on that also.

“To me the regular season means nothing. We haven’t seen these guys since late January. I watched all the tapes the last few days. Every lineup was different. No Prigioni, Terrence Jones was out, Dwight Howard was out, Josh Smith. So I don’t think the regular-season record or the four match-ups, I don’t think they tell us a whole lot.” He should share that with the punters who waged using online gambling news.

The Houston Rockets also had to take on “smaller 5-man approach.” The prediction of Dwight Howards performance was always considered “suspect” by everyone. Even though before the game, Howard spoke with enthusiasm but overlooked the seriousness of his injury that would make the Rockets readjusted to a smaller line.

Coach Kevin McHale relied on Terrence Jones, Corey Brewer, Josh Smith in the front and James Harden and Trevor Ariza in the back. Harden tends to play like a bigger player. Houston could move around the court “position free” relying more on their athleticism. The only downside to this is that three were sub-par shooters at best.
