Rockets' Clint Capela on Warriors rivalry: 'We are better than them'

Rockets' Clint Capela on Warriors rivalry: 'We are better than them'

This is why the Warriors deserved to lose this game, which gave the Rockets a 2-1 victory in the season series and the homecourt tiebreaker should the two teams finish with identical records.

"No", responded when asked if it mattered. You're going to have to get through these teams to get to where you want to go.

This loss also puts an end to Golden State's 4-game win streak as the Warriors return home from their 5-game road trip with a 4-1 record.

Chris Paul's Houston Rockets won two out of three against Kevin Durant's Golden State Warriors this season, but the defending champs still have a 3.5-game lead atop of the Western Conference.

With Rockets small forward Trevor Ariza sitting out the first part of a two-game suspension for a postgame locker room incident on Monday in Los Angeles, Luc Mbah a Moute started in Ariza's place, scoring 14 points in 32 minutes.

"It's game 40-what? Seven, eight?" It's not about who we're playing. "Today, we were ready".

The Rockets beat the Warriors twice this season, and they're undefeated (17-0) when Paul, Harden and Clint Capela share the court.

The Rockets and Warriors had chased each other into the final minutes, a last regular-season meeting before they could as many predict meet in May. Both squads have the ideal balance of offensive and defensive efficiency - plus, they have the star power to make big shot after big shot or big play after big play. "So I've got to take that responsibility for that one". "... It is what it is".

James scored 18 points, falling seven shy of the 30,000 plateau, before departing the game midway through the fourth quarter.

"And the same thing the play before that", Curry said, "KD was coming off a pick-and-roll, and he was butt-naked-open at the top of the key".

"I personally didn't have the right vision on the floor", Curry said. "It was pretty bad". And they are otherwise known as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Andrew Wiggins finished with 16 points. Durant had four. As a team, they only average 15.3 a night.

"The guy is a victor, he's been a victor, he's going to win", D'Antoni said.

The Warriors coughed up the ball 19 times, translating to 23 points for the Rockets.

Chris Paul led the way for Houston with 33 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists followed by James Harden with 22.

Durant is impressed with this new Rockets squad. They're going to make some tough shots. "I was trying to create opportunities and get guys involved, and obviously, those guys had great games tonight". "We know that they're going to come back if we have the lead, and we've just got to keep that mind-set", Capela told ESPN.
