HOUSTON, TX - With an epic comeback in the books, the Rockets say it's time to turn the page. They'll start the Western Conference Finals against Golden State on Tuesday night in California.
"I think this past series, we kind of eased our way into the series and started playing really well the last few games," Rockets guard James Harden said after Monday's practice. "I think for this series, we have to be ready to go from the beginning."
"We can't be scared," added Rockets small forward Corey Brewer. "We've got to go out there and believe we can win. You know everybody's like 'the Warriors this, the Warriors that, oh well.' We feel like we've got a good team that has a chance to win the championship. Game 1, we have to go out there and be aggressive."
The Rockets are returning to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 18 years.
