After Game 1, Warriors vs. Rockets will be decided on the margins

After Game 1, Warriors vs. Rockets will be decided on the margins

The report only assesses events that occur in a game that was at or within three points during any point in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter or overtime.

Golden State and Houston met in the Western Conference finals last season. "Call the game how it's supposed to be called and that's it". They know all of the tricks. He had rebounded a missed 3-pointer by Harden that could have tied the game with 9 seconds left and was arguing for a foul. Klay Thompson had nine points.

Top-seeded Golden State had yet to eliminate the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then the Warriors failed to close it out at home in Game 5 before winning Game 6 on Friday night on the road. "I was told the same thing at half, there were probably a couple more in the second half", Harden said.

"Right now, we've got to focus on playing better", Antetokounmpo said after Milwaukee fell 112-90 in Game 1. "I don't have a clue what happened the last 20 seconds", D'Antoni said.

The Rockets had a 17-point lead in Game 6 and a 15-point lead in Game 7, but couldn't finish the job.

Game 2 is Tuesday night back at Oracle Arena. "They've got two Hall of Fame guards in the backcourt and everyone else has carved out a nice roll", Thompson said. It's not ever going to be a flawless game. They're the best team. They dispatched with the Utah Jazz in five games but are surprisingly waiting on the outcome of the top-seeded Golden State Warriors.

The points lost on the potential missed calls were determined based on free throw averages to decide how many points a team could have expected when it didn't get a trip to the foul line. Both players have been undergoing treatment since their injuries, including prior to the team's film session Saturday afternoon. They will need those role players, along with PJ Tucker and Eric Gordon, to contribute on both ends of the floor if the Rockets want to win the series. If he's more aggressive in Game 2 that could help Harden (who took 28 shots) get even cleaner looks.

It's not basketball, and it feels like a lot of these plays are manipulations of the rules, whether it's Harden, Paul, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant or anyone else.
