Game 2 suddenly makes the series interesting again but it's got a lot to do with how the Rockets play. They need to run-and-gun, move the ball rather than iso Harden and Paul to win games. Meanwhile, for the Warriors, it's back to the drawing board. They were thoroughly outplayed in Game 2 and need to make serious adjustments to Game 2 with the biggest being intensity. Maybe they took their foot of the pedal having already gotten the split.
Either way, Game 3 is Sunday night in Oracle Arena and with so many days in between, the build up to that game is going to be epic. Anyways, this is Yash Matange signing off. Do stay locked on to Sportskeeda for the latest and in-depth coverage of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
