OAKLAND, Calif. — Steve Kerr has the highest winning percentage of any head coach in NBA history, so we’ll forgive him for his dead-wrong prediction ahead of Game 1 between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

"This is going to be hard," Kerr said roughly 90 minutes before the opening tip of a 104-78 win.

The Dubs were brilliant—running, moving the ball and playing with the ease and freedom that were often missing during their stretch-run push toward 73 wins. They were locked in defensively too, limiting the Rockets to 78 points on 35.7 percent shooting while forcing 24 turnovers.

Offensive flow and defensive discipline combined in playoff-ready fashion.

"Very satisfied," Kerr said afterward. "I thought our defense was excellent...that was a good, solid victory."


Abject demolition? Trash compaction? Merciless embarrassment? They all work.
