Durant, Warriors beat Rockets in Game 1

39;I've defeated the odds.'

Game 2 of the series is Wednesday in Houston. However, it simply wasn't enough as the Rockets appeared outmatched throughout the majority of the contest. The way Houston was soundly defeated by Golden State doesn't offer much hope for the team that led the National Basketball Association with 65 regular-season wins.

Draymond Green scored only five points, but made up for it with a near double-double with nine rebounds and nine assists to go along with two steals and two blocks.

Trending today on KRON4 Morning Buzz is Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

While Durant served as a midrange gunner, recording three rebounds and one assist, Thompson scorched Houston from the perimeter, hitting 6 of 15 3-point attempts.

Kevin Durant was the biggest difference-maker Monday, scoring 37 points on 14-27 shooting. We go into the Xs and Os, the performances, and some of the potential adjustments for Game 2. "We lost a home game in the last series - obviously it's a different team but, for us, our focus right now is on game two". However, excluding Eric Gordon, who scored 15 points off the bench, the Rockets received precious little from their role players.

"I'm just going to tell him (Harden) that he needs to get 55 next time", Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni joked when asked if he was discouraged by the 13-point loss despite Harden's 41 points.

A true renaissance mid-range artist, Durant pulverized great defenders like Chris Paul, P.J. Tucker, Trevor Ariza, and Clint Capela with a pull-up jump shot clinic - ruthlessly rising over them and finding his sweet spots all over the floor.
