Yesterday was Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and the Rockets. The Game took place at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. This game was crucial in this series because it would determine if the Warriors would have the upper hand or if the Rockets would tie the series. Well, last night the Rockets won the game, but it was a super close game. The score was 95-92, the Warriors had the last possession of the night but unfortunately were not able to score in the last few seconds. Check out the link below for the extremely enticing game below.
I normally talk about the winning team first, but today I wanted to switch it up since the score was so close. The Warriors started off phenomenally but teetered off in the second half. They were 35/89(39.3%)for field goals, 9/27(33.3%)for three-pointers, and 13/14(92.9%) for free throws. They also had 49 rebounds, 14 assists, 6 steals, and 3blocks. The leading players were Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green.
