PBT Extra: Can Rockets take Game 2 energy, execution on the road?

Expect a sharper game from the Golden State Warriors and a win in Game 3 as the series shifts away from Houston, however, Kurt Helin believes it isn't out of the question for the Rockets to take the series.

Houston found its blueprint to beating Golden State in Game 2: Strong defensive pressure on the ball, quick switches and communication on defense, getting out in transition when possible, and starting sets earlier in the shot clock and attacking downhill with James Harden and Chris Paul.

Now can they do that on the road? Against a more focused and sharper Warriors’ team?

That will be the question in the next two games of the Western Conference Finals, and it’s what I discuss in this latest PBT Extra.
