In Game 1 The Warriors were playing their first road Game 1 since the 2014 season and after being down nine early they tied the score at the half.

The Rockets got to within four in the beginning of the 4th period, but then gave up a 13-4 run and it was never close after that.

Houston allowed the Warriors to take too many open 3-pointers and they have to pressure Golden State on the perimeter in this game.
