In one of the most anticipated series in a long time, the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets have all the ingredients for a historic must-watch playoff series in the 2018 Western Conference Finals.
Before the Golden State Warriors were in their current famed form, most of the basketball world critiqued them for being too one-sided. It was when players like Draymond Green and Klay Thompson became elite defenders and Andre Iguodala joined the party that they became an undeniable historically great team, because they could play both sides of the ball.
The irony of this series is that the Houston Rockets have come into their own as an equally impressive two-way team, with an equally record-shattering knack for scoring the ball, all while tailoring their roster specifically to defeat the Warriors.
While everyone tried to recreate that magic that is the Dubs, the Rockets did it best, down to every nuance. Who knows? They just might be able to beat the Warriors at their own game.
The truth is that from a strictly-basketball perspective, this series is truly your NBA Finals.
Get ready for a Western Conference Finals of epic proportions, as we crack into a preview of one of the most exciting series in the modern era of NBA basketball.
