Rockets hold off Mitchell, Jazz to win series

Houston struggled in Games 2, 3 and 4 from the perimeter against the Jazz but was hot in Games 1 and 5: if the Rockets' shooting from those two games show up, the Warriors could have their hands full.

Although I think the Warriors will end up prevailing over the Rockets in this series, it's most likely going to be tightly contested. Despite 34 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks from Anthony Davis in his best game of the series, the Big 4 were too much for the Pellies. He played 37.4 minutes per game.

Warriors: Green is the first Warrior to ever average a triple-double in a playoff series.

A long 3-pointer from Mitchell gave Utah a six point lead with just over a minute left before the fourth quarter.

Of those 20 previous teams that achieved that feat, 15 eventually won the championship.

It should matter a little who the Warriors play.

The two teams traded blows in the fourth quarter like a pair of heavyweights and it all came down to a buzzer beating attempt by Kevin Durant that went through the basket but was ruled late upon replay review.

On the other side, you have the well-chronicled postseason failings of James Harden and Chris Paul that will either weigh them down or inspire them to break through. "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 and hopefully won't look back". His desire to play for it all had everything to do with his move to Houston last summer, and this is his chance to follow through.

After a season that saw a late lottery pick evolve into an everyday talking point, an offensive dynamo who routinely waged war on rims in arenas around the National Basketball Association and enchanted a fan base always in search of its next darling, the Jazz rookie superstar has big plans for his first summer as a pro.

According to the Westgate Superbook (via ESPN.com), the Warriors are listed at -185 against the Rockets in seven games.

Despite Houston's compelling regular season, the question remains: will the Rockets' passion for eradicating their postseason nightmares be enough to unmask the Warriors seasoned starting five? The Warriors were 29-12 on the road. But we're definitely looking forward to it. "We know they are ready, and we'll be ready for them".

"I think Coach did a great job though of just giving him a little bit here and there and really just letting him go [in Game 5]", Durant said, as quoted on Sporting News.

"Noted. Great. We'll see y'all soon", Green said then.

Paul scored 41 points, making eight 3-pointers to go along with seven rebounds, 10 assists and no turnovers in the Rockets' 112-110 series-clinching win over the Jazz on Tuesday.
