The Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets 104-90 on Wednesday night, winning the Western Conference Finals 4-1, moving on to the NBA Finals and eliminating the Rockets from the playoffs. Dwight Howard finished with a double-double of 18 points and 16 rebounds. He took the podium after the game and was asked how tough it was to overcome injuries and then have the season end like this.
A flash flood emergency was declared in Houston where torrential downpours created severe flooding. Tons of cars were stuck on highways and fans inside the Toyota Center were urged to remain in the arena.
