Are the Houston Rockets the Golden State Warriors' kryptonite?

And according to Rockets breakout center Clint Capela, their 2-1 record against Golden State is proof of Houston's superiority to Stephen Curry and Co.

"That just shows what we're made out of", guard Wayne Ellington said.

"We're not the only ones that go through it", Spoelstra said of playing through injuries.

Houston welcomed both Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green back to their rotation after they served suspensions for trying to get into the Los Angeles Clippers' locker room following a physical game at Staples Center arena.

"We buckled down and took away the paint". But today, we were ready. I have never been this confident playing in my entire career.

This means that on a good day, the Rockets can open up the Warriors' defense and score heavily against them.

Eric Gordon scored 16 points off the bench for Houston but finished 0-for-7 on 3s after going 0-for-9 in a win over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

"We always emphasise home court".

On the season, the Rockets are averaging 114.7 points, 44.2 rebounds and 22.4 assists per game.

The Houston Rocket's up-tempo spread out offense with a reliance on three-pointers and pick-and-roll plays has been unguardable for opposing teams.

"It was a big statement, because we definitely wanted to win the tiebreaker".

"We believe that a fresh approach and a change in leadership are needed to continue elevating our talented team towards the next level, bringing us closer to our goal of competing for championships". If we lose and the [Warriors] win their game, what was the point? As such, the former Tennessee Volunteer led the team with a plus-1 rating to go along with his 12 points, three boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

However, general manager Jon Horst said the time had come for a change with the Bucks languishing in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings at 23-22.

While most neutral fans have bought in on the Rockets bandwagon, what remains to be seen is whether Houston will be able to deliver the same performances against a Warriors side who lost just one game in last year's playoffs; a Warriors side that is absolutely lethal in the business end of the tournament.
