    “I guess he took some risks,” Green said about Rockets general manager Daryl Morey after practice on Monday. “He got Chris Paul. He’s a man of his word. He took some risks.”
    With those risks yielding a high return, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni told ESPN about the Warriors. “You’re not gonna stop them. It’s just not gonna happen. They’re not gonna stop us, either.”


    The dismissive tone in Green’s voice grew louder after a reporter relayed D’Antoni’s quote.

    “I don’t know how serious they take defense with that comment,” Green said, shaking his head. “But they added some good defensive players.”

    Green listed Paul’s defensive credentials, while admitting the potential loss in parting ways with Beverly. Then again, plenty of focus centers on how Harden and Paul will co-exist and D’Antoni’s fast-paced system that puts a heavy emphasis on 3-point shooting. How does that matchup with the Warriors’ top-ranked offense in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Green?

    “They want it to be a shoot out, which is fine,” Green said. “But we’re going to play some defense. We scored pretty well. But we’re a damn good defensive team too. So we’re going to play some defense.”

    Rockets are 10 point underdogs here? Really??

    I say lets beat the crap out of them by like 20 points, destroy their locker room facilities, make off with whatever we can find and call it industrial espionage.

    Can't really make it much lower or they'd get flooded with Warriors bets.

    I put a bet on Warriors winning. So either we win or lose I will be happy. Just don't lose by 8.
