2015 NBA Playoffs: Houston Rockets eliminated the fifth game
The Final of the Eastern Conference ended yesterday with victory for the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Atlanta Hawks and this morning is over the Western Conference Final to win for the Golden State Warriors over the Houston Rockets. If Cleveland did in the fast lane, 4-0, to Oakland it costs them one more game.
And it’s a shame that this final is over as soon as we run out which was the great duel of the season: Stephen Curry against James Harden. The top two players of course have been challenged in this series and, individually, almost no victor or vanquished in this case. We only need to look at the averages of each, there have been only get carried away in every game and enjoy.
The Warriors did not fail at home and won the first two games of the series. The first by 110-106 , leaving Curry to 34 points, and the second by a tight 99-98, despite 38 points by James Harden, however, lost the ball in the last possession and squandered and the possibility of a victory. Curry, in this game, she passed the thirty points.
This defeat, as it came, was a blow to the Houston Rockets lost the third by a clear 115-80 and putting on a silver platter the ticket to the finals for the Warriors. Anyway they would have to wait because Harden was not willing to take a vacation so fast. With 45 points, he led his team to its first victory and forced the series back to California.
And there the story ended with a new victory for Golden State Warriors to finalize the series. The score was clear, 104-90 , after one of the worst games of the year for Harden. MVP Warriors Stephen Curry, who finished the night with 26 points and returned to the finals of the NBA forty years after they played, and indeed won, the last in which they were.
So, we have a NBA Finals unprecedented in its history, the Golden State Warriors, who have a ring after playing a final, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who played only one final and lost. Unable to advance the end, many questions have to wait a week without NBA basketball. Until next June 4 does not start.
