    So many different analysts that all ultimately have no more of a clue what they're talking about than you or I.

    Here's what I've heard:
    -CP3 is key
    - Hunt down Curry
    - Stop Dray and Iggy
    - PJ and Ariza are key
    - Eric Gordon will be super important
    - Clint Capela is the key
    - How to stop the Hamptons 5

    yada yada potata

    Almost have to just say... if the Rockets guys play well and score more, they'll win!

    Night Wright watches a lots of Rockets basketball. He knows what he is talking about! I hope D'Antoni make Curry play defense every minute of the game. Run as many PnRs to get Curry switch him to the ball handler. Test his ankles and knees. Get him in foul trouble, or make him spend energy on defense. Not only is Curry their weakest defender, he also is their most important player on offense.

    Without an effective Curry, Warriors become ordinary. As simple as that.

    A great point that he brought up is that the Rockets have to win the time that Curry and Durant rest. Almost like when we destroyed OKC when Westbrook sat last year. You have to extend the lead and get a cushion during those times becuase we have the depth to do it. If we just hold par during those times it won't be good.

    Make Curry WORK on defense.

    On offense, we need to put him on his AZZ. FLOOR HIS AZZ. Make him think twice about trying anything against us.

    James Harden vs Steph Curry
    CP3 vs Klay Thompson
    Clint Capela vs Draymond Green
    Eric Gordon vs Kevin Durant

    The above is somewhat of a push to me. Below is not:

    The rest of the players on the respective teams.
