It wasn’t a picture perfect win. But it doesn’t matter. Golden State is headed to the NBA Finals.
In a game plagued by sloppy play and turnovers, the Warriors managed to outlast the Rockets, 104-90, to win the series 4-1 and the Western Conference Championship. Harrison Barnes—wearing the adidas Crazy Ghost 2—stepped up his game in the fourth quarter as he rattled off 9 straight points in a two-minute span to help lead Golden State to victory.
For the Rockets, James Harden—sporting the Nike Zoom Run the One—played one of the worst games of his NBA career, finishing the evening with a nightmarish stat line of 14 points on 2-of-11 shooting from the field and a playoff-record 13 turnovers lending credence to the legitimacy of the BasedGod curse.
