The Warriors had 15 TOs in G2, they had 14 total in G1 & G3 combined.

Unless Houston can force the Warriors into turning the ball over more I'm not sure this series comes back to Oracle for G6.

If the Rockets can come out like they did in G2 then they can beat the Warriors even at Oracle, but if the Warriors aren't turning the ball over, they are very, very tough to beat.

Also on a semi-related note, is Chris Paul healthy? He seemed to have zero ability to move past guys in G3.

Things have a way of changing fast. I mean just look at the 2016 finals.

Warriors +15, +33, +11 in G 1, 2, 4
Cavs +30, +15, +14 in G 3, 5, 6
not one of the 6 games was really remotely competitive and yet the series was tied @3.

I certainly wouldn't count out the Rockets but if they don't force GSW into more TOs like they were able to do I G2 they are getting run out the building again.

I think Cowherd did a bit on how, with the 3 point shooting, it actually leads to a lot more playoff games being decided by 10+ points. It was a year or two ago he did it, I think during either the 16 or 17 finals. It's amazing how fast the leads swing now. And it's almost as if there are only 2-3 teams that understand being down by 10 is not a big deal anymore. 3-stop-3 and you're down 4. Somehow the warriors can make that happen in 30 seconds.
