The Houston Rockets’ series with the Warriors went seven games and lived up to the hype. Here are three takeaways from the Western Conference Finals.
The series between the Rockets and Warriors was as competitive as everyone thought it would be. Game 1 through 7 were filled with blowouts, heart-pounding close games and big scoring performances.
Houston became the first team to win in Oracle Arena since the 2016 Finals. The Rockets are the best team that the Warriors have faced over the last couple of seasons, and it took everything that Golden State had to come away with a win.
It’s disappointing to see Houston fall just short of reaching the NBA Finals. The refs did not favor Houston, but its hard to complain when the Rockets just couldn’t make their shots in Game 7.
Despite the loss, there were a lot of good things that we learned from the Rockets. Lets examine three takeaways from this series.
