Warriors-Rockets series finally here

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

That doesn't mean he's 100 percent, though.

When asked how he felt about getting the chance to play in his first Conference Finals, he said: "Who plays just for that?" I feel confident in what I'm able to do out there. "It throws a lot of these groups off, but for us, we've got a versatile group that can play different ways". If nothing abnormal happens in the series, the stats indicate a likely 7 games with the Rockets ultimately advancing.

For the upcoming series, which begins Monday at Houston, two games have average asking prices of $1,000 or more - the if-needed Game 7 in Houston is sitting at $1,416 with a get-in price of $305 and Game 4 at Golden State is sitting right at $1,000 with a get-in price of $199. The Rockets are healthy as well, though, meaning this is the matchup we've all been waiting for.

On one side, you have three Warriors All-Stars who are now four years into this dominating run with Curry, Thompson and Green.

Golden State has lost just twice in the opening two rounds of the postseason and they'll look to maintain that momentum now that the team is healthy again.

Draymond Green's incredible help defense will also contribute to Golden State's effort to contain Harden and Paul, and Kevin Durant can add some extra length around the rim.

Trump announces delegation to Israel for opening of U.S. embassy in Jerusalem
Trump has left the question of his participation in the embassy opening in doubt for months, saying that he might come. The move prompted global condemnation and triggered a wave of protests in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Meanwhile, the second-seeded Warriors finished the regular season with a 58-24 record and also made quick work of their early round opponents this playoffs, ending the seasons of the Spurs (4-1) and Pelicans (4-1). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's the first playoff game of at least 40 points, 10 assists and no turnovers since turnovers became an official statistic 40 years ago, and it's hard to believe anyone had 10 turnovers before that, because old-school coaches would bench even a star who was that careless with the ball.

Curry went 10 for 16 in 37 minutes playing his fourth game back from a sprained left knee he hurt March 23.

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.

The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas opened with Golden State listed as -185 favorites to win the series against Houston. The Warriors, come to think of it, might need to wrap it up in six if they're going to pull this off. The Warriors were 29-12 on the road.

"Noted. Great. We'll see y'all soon", Green said then. "(We) kind of forget that feeling. "I'm looking forward to it".
