To quote the great Frank Costanza: “You want a piece of me? You got it!”
The Rockets are built to beat one team. They’re publicly confident that they’re good enough to beat that one team.
Now they’re playing that one team.
Only problem is that one team looks as ready as it has in a while to beat anyone coming for ’em. The defense is back to being the best in the league. Steph is getting healthier by the day. The head coach has decided to play his best players.
It’s going to be a great series. Most teams who win 65+ games like the Rockets win the title. (20 teams have won 65+ and 15 of them won the title.) They’re the best team the Warriors have faced in the Kerr era.
To quote the great Draymond Green: “Now they got us and we got them. We’ll see who better.”
