Houston vs. Golden State — the showdown we’ve been waiting for since before the season began — has finally arrived. It comes with a lot of questions: Can James Harden get isolations and go right at Stephen Curry, and will that work? Can Clint Capela give the Warriors’ Hamptons’ Five lineup trouble?
LeBron James has just one more team between him and an eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals, but the Boston Celtics with Al Horford and a smart defense are going to present challenges the Toronto Raptors did not last series. Will Kevin Love and Kyle Korver continue to make big plays.
Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman of NBC Sports get into each series and look at the details. The pair also get into the discussion of coaches in Toronto and Philadelphia, where there are segments of both fan bases that want to fire the head man.
