The series between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors is tied at two games apiece, but the Warriors know they dropped the ball prior to heading into Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday in Houston.
They are still miffed about losing Tuesday’s Game 4 at home in a contest they led by as many as 12 points in the final quarter,nfl jerseys cheap collection yet the Warriors are confident they’ll overcome the setback.
“[We’re] kind of pissed off,” forward Draymond Green said after Wednesday’s practice at the University of Houston. “We know we let one slip away. So, definitely guys are pissed off, but encouraged, as well. I love the way this team responds when our backs are against the wall. I don’t mind our backs being against the wall, because I know what we’re capable of, and I know the level of focus and intensity level that this team brings when that is the case.
“It is what it is. I think we blew a golden opportunity, but it’s not one that we can’t get back. We know we can go get it back, so it’s no panic.”
The Warriors will need all the bodies, particularly small bodies, that they can throw at the Rockets. Houston’s small-ball lineups have forced Kerr to do away with playing bigs such as Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee and David West, players who have been in the regular rotation for much of the season.
Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell, two young and agile bigs, have received the nod from Kerr in this series.

“They’re going to help us get two more wins in this series,” he said adamantly.
And before finishing his media address, Curry said he feels good about what’s in store for the rest of the series.
“It’s easy to wake up today and kind of think we lost a huge opportunity, whatever this and that and think negatively,” he said. “I woke up this morning thinking we played that bad in the fourth quarter, lost by three points and played a solid defensive game. Like I said, we have a great track record of having bounce-back. So it put a smile on my face getting on the plane coming down here.”
