The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are tied at 56 at halftime of Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

The Rockets played about as well as you’d expect at home in Game 1 this season, but their offense showed signs of disintegrating as the half wore on.

Kevin Durant finished the half with 17 points on 13 shots. Klay Thompson is second-leading scorer on the Warriors with 12 points. Steph Curry has a game-high six assists — it looks likes he’s just messing around at this point.

James Harden leads the Rockets 24 points on 12 shots. But guys like Kevon Looney have done a solid job on defense in switches. Let’s see if the Rockets’ defense finds a rhythm this half.
