For all the debate surrounding the second-best team in the West, it would frankly be a bit unfair if we didn’t see the Warriors and Rockets meet in the Western Conference finals. Denver is the likely No. 2 seed, and Oklahoma City has a pair of MVP candidates. But as we look forward to May, Houston has emerged as the clear threat to Golden State’s throne. The Rockets entered Wednesday night 3–0 against the Warriors in 2018-19. They will end the regular season 3–1 after losing 106–104 at the Toyota Center.
