Western Conference Finals is the first for childhood friends Chris Paul, PJ Tucker
For a variety of reasons (ok, it was mainly injury), the Warriors did not use the Death Lineup against Houston all season.
But even for his Houston Rockets teammates, what they saw from him Tuesday night (Wednesday, Manila time) was on another level.
Curry played his most minutes since missing almost six weeks with a knee injury, finishing with 28 points and helping the Warriors advance to the Western Conference finals for a fourth straight year by dismantling Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.
The Rockets can't ask for much more. They'll have to play elite defense to cover all of the Warriors' weapons.
Like the Warriors, the Rockets are loaded with star talent, led by their backcourt with Chris Paul and James Harden.
Paul was a killer off the dribble and delivered dagger after dagger by shooting 13-of-18 on jump shots, including a hyper-efficient 8-of-10 on 3-pointers. He shot 3-of-6 from three and made all five of his free throws. However, per Paul in a post-game interview, Harden was under the weather yesterday.
"I don't wanna be stupid about it", D'Antoni told Business Insider in November. Though the incident caused Curry to become upset with officials, Curry showed no signs of discomfort after Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday pushed him toward the stanchion underneath the basket with 5:08 left in the second quarter.
Chris Paul has finally done it. After one of those victories, Rockets center Clint Capela added fuel to the fire, saying about the Warriors: "We're better than them". On one hand, Durant, observed that "you just start thinking about unnecessary stuff" when a coach monitors a players' minutes with unpredictable rotations.

Two workers were rescued in an unconscious condition, while bodies of two miners were recovered on Saturday night. The mines reportedly have a history of poor enforcement of safety regulations.
The Rockets just eliminated the Jazz from the playoffs. Durant scored 20 or more points in a 17th straight postseason game. In 38 minutes on the floor, the 33-year-old point guard established a monster performance and led the Rockets with a career-playoff-high 41 points, together with 10 assists and seven rebounds on 59.1 percent shooting from the field and 80 percent from beyond the arc.
Harden said, according to Shaun Powell of NBA.com: "If I'm at home and if it's an off night, he'll call me and say, 'Hey, did you see the game, are you watching the game?' He loves basketball ..." For the Pelicans, the loss ends what will go down as one of the most successful seasons in franchise history. His usage percentage remained the same. The seeds are flipped this time, after Houston finished the regular season with the league's best record. Paul said, via ESPN. Paul then drove the dagger into the bone with 35 seconds left, passing out of a double team to find a wide-open PJ Tucker in the corner for a three that gave the Rockets a 10-point lead.
The Jazz had largely been written off as playoff contenders when All-Star forward Gordon Hayward left the team a year ago for the Boston Celtics and started the season with a dismal 19 win, 28 loss record.
