History Remains Strongly On The Side Of The Warriors
The Western Conference Finals return to Oakland Wednesday night, after the Rockets avoided a Warriors sweep, claiming a 128-115 victory in Game 4 on Monday. James Harden put together a great performance in the series-extending game, scoring 45 points for Houston. During Game 4, 2015 NBA MVP Stephen Curry suffered a very scary and dangerous fall, but luckily was not seriously injured. He would later return to the contest.
Amid falling down 0-3, the Rockets are attempting to overcome a number of tall tasks. Even though Houston came back from down 3-1 to the Clippers, during the West semifinals, no team in NBA history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit. Also, including the postseason, the Warriors own a ridiculous 45-3 record at Oracle Arena this season. The Rockets would have to win Game 5 and a possible Game 7 in Oakland, in order to miraculously win the series.
