Where: Toyota Center, Houston, Texas

Total O/U: 224½

The Golden State Warriors were on fire in game one of their Western Conference Final with the Houston Rockets on Monday. They withstood 41 points from James Harden and pulled away in the second half for a comfortable 119-106 victory.

Kevin Durant was practically unstoppable in this one leading the way with 37 points on 14-27 shooting. Klay Thompson pitched in 28 points.

Chris Paul had 23 for the Rockets.

With Harden, Paul and Mike d’Antoni at the core of their team, the Rockets leaders are hungry, but have never gotten over the hump of winning even a conference title. Now they see that they’re going to need to find another gear, especially on the defensive end if they’re going to be a serious challenge to Golden State.
