Funniest James Harden memes after choking in Rockets blowout of Spurs

James Harden took the blame for the Houston Rockets' blowout loss in Game 6 as they were eliminated from the Western Conference Semifinals by the San Antonio Spurs. Ever since the emergence of Stephen Curry and the Dubs, basketball fans have been anticipating a showdown between the new kids on the block in the Warriors and the tried and tested formula in the Spurs. Golden State got Game 4. Leonard will be back for the Warriors series, Parker will not.

Game 6 highlighted something that has been clear for a while now: The Spurs are the great chameleon of pro sports and have shown themselves to be capable of navigating just about any scenario thrown their way.

Rebounding has been a dominant theme for the Warriors ever since they learned San Antonio would be their finals opponent, and Curry picked up the beat in the final practice before Game 1. Golden State responded with a win on the road. The Dubs have also had the luxury of enjoying a week rest in advance of their showdown against the Spurs.

They lost Tim Duncan to retirement last summer, then saw veteran point guard Tony Parker go down with a season-ending quadriceps tendon tear in Game 2.

Spurs' superstar and MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard was out for the game with an ankle injury, giving the Rockets an additional upside in addition to having home court advantage. The Warriors could be a bit rusty with all that time off, and they are 2-7 ATS in their past nine playing on three of more days of rest. The Starters' panelists all think that the Warriors will win Game 1 of the third round in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. The Warriors are a different animal, something that Popovich might have never dealt with, unless it was an All-Star Game.

David Lee will face his old Warriors team, while David West faces the Spurs, his former team.

Green and company enter the conference finals as overwhelming underdogs, with few outside of South Texas expecting an extended series verses the Warriors.

OddsShark has a line average for Warriors and Spurs Game 1 at -10 for Golden State. They got it in style, dominating on both ends of the floor as their defense stifled and their attack slayed in this Texan showdown. The Spurs needed six games each to get by Memphis and Houston, and are looking for their seventh Finals appearance under head coach Gregg Popovich.
