Outlook: Look for both teams to rain down three-pointers and look for the fireworks to start with Golden State's Stephen Curry and Houston's James Harden, the league's most valuable player and the runner-up, respectively. This marks the 22nd time in NBA history that the top two in the MVP voting have met in the playoffs. Curry is averaging 28.2 points in the playoffs, while Harden is averaging 26.7 points. Curry gets plenty of help from guard Klay Thompson (20.7 points per game in the playoffs). And Harden has gotten assistance from center Dwight Howard, who ranks first in the playoffs in rebounds (13.8) and second in blocks (2.50). The Warriors are a deep and versatile team: forward Draymond Green and center Andrew Bogut will defend Howard, small forward Harrison Barnes came alive in the second round against Memphis and swingman Andre Iguodala leads the reserves. The Rockets can counter with versatile small forward Trevor Ariza, who'll probably defend Thompson and Curry at times and knock down three-pointers as well. Forwards Josh Smith and Terrence Jones and guards Jason Terry and Corey Brewer have given the Rockets production at the right time in the playoffs.
