Rockets set to host Warriors in Western Conference Finals

  The Roundup—Jazz put up a fight in season-ending loss to Rockets

Check out the full tv schedule for the Western Conference Finals below. High alleys from Rajon Rondo to Anthony Davis against the Portland Trailblazers and the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets could represent the best chance to stop the Warriors from winning three titles in four years.

After Tuesday's Game 5 victory over the Pelicans, Draymond was asked if he had anything to say to Capela.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Chris Paul had 27 points and 12 rebounds while James Harden scored 24 points to power the Rockets to a win over the Jazz, taking a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series. If Golden State can disrupt his rhythm, the Warriors should be able to control the series. In Game 3 against Utah, he dropped 25 points very efficiently and was a huge reason why the Rockets won.

Golden State's 2015 National Basketball Association title run, Kerr's first-year as an National Basketball Association head coach, was only the start. But this year, the Rockets seemed to be deadset on improving their defensive game as well.

Instead, the Warriors coach is confident his team have the advantage of knowing exactly what it takes to win a championship.

The Warriors have a diverse array of lengthy and fleet of foot defenders, but throughout the season they've chosen to stick with Thompson on Harden a majority of the time.

Arsenal charged over failing to control players
The disadvantage did little to help to already struggling Gunners, despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang briefly drawing them level. Leicester City manager Claude Puel has refused to rule out Riyad Mahrez's exit from the club this summer.

This may be prudent but it risks the Bank being short of firepower come the next downturn. But while savers will be disappointed, it's pretty good news for investors.

IPL 2018: KKR vs MI Match Report
Due to his onslaught, MI went from 62/2 in 9 overs to 144/3 in 14.4 overs, when he departed with a score of 62 from just 21 balls. Lewis and Suryakumar stitched together a 46-run stand for the opening wicket as Mumbai Indians were 47/1 at the end of Powerplay.

NBA odds: Who will win the 2018 NBA Championship? After all, it's clear to everybody who watched Golden State both in the regular season and the postseason that the Dubs did not care much about the first 82 games.

So far in the playoffs, leaving Tucker open has not been an effective strategy: He has taken 4.6 3s a game and made 45.6 percent of them. The teams didn't meet during the 2017 postseason, but the Warriors won a five-game series in the first round of the 2016 playoffs.

On a night when Harden went 7-for-22 from the field for 18 points - Paul later said Harden was under the weather - Paul did exactly what Houston brought him into do. However, the Cavaliers should prevail, and they should win this series in 4 games, or less. Curry is No. 3 with 329-in only 79 playoff games. Rubio has missed the entire series with his injury, and Exum was injured in the third quarter of Game 5. Their greatest number of points scored, 116.

However, since we fans can not predict what the outcomes will be, they will have to play the games for us and for themselves.

GOLDEN State is trying to reach the NBA Finals for the 10th time, a mark that two other franchises have reached. Houston defeating the Jazz 112-102, Golden State defeating the Pelicans 113-104.

The Houston Rockets traded for Chris Paul last season to help James Harden and give the Rockets a shot at beating the Golden State Warriors.

Draymond Green almost had a triple-double, scoring 19 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and dishing out nine assists. He put us all on his back and said listen: "'I got us'". "I'll continue to get better, continue to get my timing right, continue to get back to the normal rotation, the normal minutes I'm out there playing".
