Rockets have ample experience facing Warriors without Kevin Durant

The Rockets had little time to prepare for the changes the injury to Golden State star Kevin Durant would force the Warriors to make. But Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said that as much as the teams have played one another, there has been more than enough time against the Warriors without Durant to already know how the Rockets would want to defend what the Warriors do differently.

If anything, the same things were considered the key to facing the Warriors without Durant as would have been against the Warriors with their leading scorer.

"Just because they played that lineup a lot, 20 minutes or so, we kind of played against them before when they had that lineup," D'Antoni said before Friday's Game 6.
