The Golden State Warriors did would they needed to do in Game 1 on Monday night to steal home court advantage away from the Rockets as they beat Houston 119-106 to take a 1-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.
Game 2 is Wednesday night.
James Harden was great for Houston as he dropped 41 points, but Kevin Durant was just as good with 37 points.
After the game, TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley was very impressed with the Warriors and believes that Houston is done.
Take a listen:

I don’t see any team beating the Warriors four times in a seven-game series, but the Rockets do have a shot.
We’ll see if Houston can bounce back in Game 2.
