The Golden State Warriors now lead the Houston Rockets 2-0 in the Western Conference Semifinals with many believing that the Warriors will take out the series in just four to five games.
With Kevin Durant in the unbelievable form alongside consistent great performances by Curry, Green and Thompson, it certainly is hard to see how a side can compete against them when they’re at their best.
On a recent episode of ESPN’s Get Up, Jaylen Rose believes that the series already over saying that ‘It is not happening’ for the Rockets.
“They’re not gonna win this series, it is not happening, in any shape or form, they will not win four out of five games against the Golden State Warriors,” Rose said.
“I think they will win a game, the problem is that when you’re playing on the road, you need your best players to have signature performances, you can’t have James Harden playing below his season averages, you need CP3 to have an outstanding game, he had a good game, not a great game”
The Golden State Warriors are one of the all-time greatest teams in the history of the game, therefore, being just ‘good’ isn’t enough.
At this stage, it’s unlikely for the Rockets to win on the road so the next two games in Houston are crucial for the franchise if they’re to remain in this series.
