And if he has that look in his eyes, he's a problem.
Today, however, we received further statistical proof that this Houston Rockets team will be unlike anything the Warriors have seen before. The Rockets won 65 games this regular season.
This off-season won't be like a year ago with the Gordon Hayward circus, but the longest tenured player on the team, Derrick Favors will be an unrestricted free agent.
These two teams are the top two teams in the league in scoring offense during the regular season and with Durant, Curry, Green, Thompson, Harden, Paul, Gordon and the rest of the three point bombers in the series, it's expected to be a high scoring affair. The Warriors Community Foundation will donate $15,000 to the charity Durant chose, Oakland Elizabeth House, which provides residences to women and children who have been homeless or faced violence or addiction. When the teams were healthy, Houston prevailed: they rallied for a 122-121 win on the road on Opening Night and then won the final meeting in late January. "It took us a while to figure out things".

Curry, who returned for Game 2 after almost six weeks out with a knee injury, knocked down an open 3-pointer midway through the third and raised his hands to get the crowd going, then made another less than two minutes later.
Durant was ready to face the Rockets in the big clash.
However, If I'm forced to be as objective as possible, I don't think I would fervidly dissuade someone from betting on the Rockets.

In Texas, Chris Paul scored 41 points as Houston made sure of their place in the Conference Finals. The point guard played a crucial role in helping them make a fourth straight Western Conference final.
Houston's Hall of Fame talent is represented by their superstar guards James Harden and Chris Paul.
"Unbelievable", Harden said after the game. The Rockets are still getting more home games if this series goes 7 games, though. He began 6 for 9 and had 14 points by the 4:10 mark of the first.
"It's just fun", he said.
In short, both sets of numbers are tremendous (if not eerily similar) and, considering Paul's overall profile as a regular season player doesn't appear to be in question, it is odd that his individual playoff performance has been.
"Know what I'm saying?"
"We want to win another championship", Green said, "and it don't matter who's in the way of that". "It throws a lot of these groups off, but for us, we've got a versatile group that can play different ways".
