NBA News: Team Executive Downplays Golden State Warriors' Dominance in Previous Season

In the latest NBA news, one team executive downplayed the Golden State Warriors' stellar performance in the 2016-17 season. Many see Golden State as an unstoppable team in the league, but not the Houston Rockets' Daryl Morey. The general manager recently spoke about the Warriors. 

Morey, in a report by Zach Lowe of ESPN, stated that Golden State is "not unbeatable." He added that there have been bigger upsets in sports, before promising that they will continue improving their team. 

"We are used to long odds. If Golden State makes the odds longer, we might up our risk profile and get even more aggressive. We have something up our sleeve," Morey also said. 

If you are a Houston fan or a supporter of any organization besides the Warriors, this is great to hear. It just shows that instead of being afraid of the Dubs' dominance, NBA teams are using it as a motivation to better their rosters. 

In the previous season, Golden State won its regular season series versus the Rockets. However, all four games were dogfights. 

Houston took Game 1 but needed an extra five minutes to capture a 132-127 victory. The Warriors triumphed in the next three meetings (125-108, 113-106, and 107-98) although they had to work hard for each win. 

The 2016-17 NBA season proved that the Rockets are among the teams in the Western Conference and in the NBA that can challenge Golden State in the coming seasons.

Houston had a chance to go toe-to-toe with the Warriors during the NBA Playoffs. Unfortunately, the Rockets lost their starting center Nene in the second-round against the San Antonio Spurs. It was a costly setback as they ended up losing the series in six games.
