Game 2 impressions – Are the Rockets dumb on defense?

-Whatever cold medicine Andrew Bogut took in game 2, I want some. -The Rockets do not have a high defensive IQ. It took them several trips for them to figure out the back picks that led to uncontested lay-ups in game one. Then they rotated poorly on Steph Curry in the first quarter that left him open for three, 3-point makes. The Warriors simply don’t make those mistakes. -The Warriors look like they are sagging off of James Harden too much. Draymond Green did that to start the second quarter and Harden hit an uncontested 15-footer. However, Harden is probably the best duel-threat offensive...

Warriors: Big matchup pits Bogut vs. Howard

In a reversal of Game 1, which was dominated by small ball, Game 2 showcased two of the league’s best centers in action similar to a street fight — something that may get even more intense as the teams’ big men get healthier.
