So the Warriors steal home court advantage from the Houston Rockets. They are now 25-3 in the Playoffs since KD joined them. They haven't had a single series even go to 6 games. Can Houston be the first?

Game 1 looked like their best shot. There are obvious spots to improve but ideally, you want to capitalize on your best player's great game. All that isolation ball hurt Rockets eventually. They have 48 hours to look at film but it's quite simple for the Rockets - no more defensive breakdowns especially in the fourth quarter and got to move the ball more, again especially in the final period when Harden looks fatigued after playing iso almost all game.

Game 2 is on Wednesday night and we'll be there to cover it live once again. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda's coverage of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, this is Raunak Jaiswal and Yash Matange signing off.

It was a battle between systems. Isolation heavy Rockets' game vs the Warriors' team-ball.
