Chris Paul earned his entire paycheck in Game 5, and then some

Tickets for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. It wasn't until the Warriors were plagued with major injuries towards the end of the regular season that it became clear the Rockets would have the home-court advantage in any potential playoff matchup. But now, you know, they got us.

Mitchell, his left foot still in a walking boot after Utah was eliminated in the second round at the hands of the Houston Rockets, said he'll travel to Europe with teammate Ekpe Udoh to attend the EuroLeague final four in Belgrade, Serbia, this summer.

The Rockets won a franchise-high and league-best 65 games during the regular season before dispatching the Minnesota Timberwolves (4-1) in the first round and the Utah Jazz (4-1) in the Western Conference Semifinals. Mitchell also developed an ability to take over games offensively late in the season, giving the Jazz a boost at critical times.

On the other side, you have the well-chronicled postseason failings of James Harden and Chris Paul that will either weigh them down or inspire them to break through.

The Warriors' 15th straight home play-off win also tied the National Basketball Association record set by the Chicago Bulls in 1990-91.

Obviously, that starts with loud-mouthed Warriors forward Draymond Green.

"However, we got them. Now?" This is the first Western Conference Finals for the childhood friends.

Curry returned, after nearly six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury in Game 2, against the Pelicans and was used sparingly by coach Kerr in the initial games.

The high-level meetings are "constructive moves in the right direction" to resolve the tensions, she said. Overall, China's April trade balance was a positive $28.78 billion, topping predictions of $24.7 billion.

Durant was ready to face the Rockets in the big clash.

I might be biased, but I think this just won the internet. General manager Dennis Lindsey says the team will be focused on internal improvements first during the offseason.

Despite eight All-NBA nods, nine All-Defensive team appearances and a resume worthy of the Hall of Fame if he retired today, Chris Paul has faced scrutiny for his playoff shortcomings.

"Unbelievable", Harden said after the game. It went five games.

Klay Thompson: 23 points, 6 rebounds.

"It's just fun", he said.

"We've just got a great group of guys and one of the best teams I've been on in a long time", said forward Derrick Favors.

"Know what I'm saying?" It's an unwritten rule that closeout games are the most hard to win, and with James Harden under the weather, Chris Paul earned his entire season's pay in Game 5. "I'll continue to get better, continue to get my timing right, continue to get back to the normal rotation, the normal minutes I'm out there playing and hopefully won't look back".
