The matchup everyone has been waiting to see in the NBA playoffs is now set in stone. The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors are set to square off in the Western Conference Finals. Houston ended Golden State's three-year run as the best regular-season team, finishing 65-and-17 with the top scoring differential. The Warriors still went 58-and-24 despite Steph Curry playing only 51 games and Kevin Durant 68. Golden State is shooting for its fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals after eliminating the Spurs and Pelicans in the first two rounds.
The Rockets did the same against the Timberwolves and Jazz. Houston beat the Warriors in two-of-three games during the regular season.
