Warriors advance Western Conference Finals

NBA playoff MVPs – Ranking LeBron, Harden, Durant and more stars

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors will face the Houston Rockets for a place in the National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals after the Western Conference heavyweights wrapped up series wins on Tuesday.

"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. If you in the way of that, then you happen to be in the way. The Bulls did so from April 27, 1990 to May 21, 1991. The two teams will battle for the right to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals.

Draymond Green: 19 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists.

"There was a good team in there somewhere, we just didn't know to what degree", Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said Wednesday as the team prepared to head into the offseason. The Golden State Warriors have a date with the Houston Rockets. In fact, regular-season matchups aside, the teams have met in the postseason - including this year's Western Conference Finals - three times since 2014. Houston eliminated Utah in its Game 5 earlier Tuesday. We've got eight more wins to get.

Curry returned, after nearly six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury in Game 2, against the Pelicans and was used sparingly by coach Kerr in the initial games. Recently, Mitchell revealed that he intends to take his game to the next level by watching all 97 games from the season prior to the September workout. When it's May and buckets are hard to come by and everyone is running on fumes, you need a superstar to take over the game. James Harden, in just his second game back from a hamstring injury scored 22 points, none more important than his step-back jumper over Steph Curry to seal things for the Rockets and send the Toyota Center crowd into a frenzy.

Lebanon's new election law unlikely to upset balance of power
Lebanon's parliamentary make-up reflects the amalgamation of communities, religions and sects living side-by-side in the country. Lebanon has long had a power-sharing political system between the different religious denominations.

The Rockets wouldn't have been able to pull off such a win with last year's roster.

This is the first time since 2014 - a span of 15 series - where Golden State will have to play Game 1 on the road. In 11 games, he chipped in 24.4 points per game, 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.5 steals.

"I did everything I could", Rubio said. "Should that surprise me?" It went five games. His minutes have increased each game he plays, up to 31 in Game 4 and 37 on Tuesday. He set multiple franchise rookie records and finished the season leading Utah in scoring at 20.5 points per game.

At one point, it seemed like a sure thing that Derrick Favors would go elsewhere when he became a free agent after the season.

What's more, Paul knows what it feels like to beat the Warriors in a playoff series.
