Charles Barkley says Rockets won’t come back vs. Warriors
It looks like Charles Barkley does not have faith in one of his former teams, the Houston Rockets.
In a candid exchange with Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle prior to Game 2 of the Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, Barkley said that he does not think that the series will be back in Houston for Game 5, suggesting that it’s going to be a sweep for the defending NBA champions.
Here’s a video of that short conversation between Barkley and Feigen via David Nuño of KTRK-TV.

Of course, what Charles Barkley insinuated could just be taken with a grain of salt, as he seems to be only regaling Feigen with some light banter, saying that he just could not wait to take a vacation.
While falling behind 1-0 in a series against the Warriors is a serious predicament, it’s obviously not the end of the world yet for Houston. The Rockets still have the tools to get back at Golden State. James Harden and Chris Paul lead a talented cast of a Rockets team that defeated the Warriors twice in three meetings back in the regular season.
In Game 1, Harden led Houston with 41 points, while Paul chipped in 23 points of his own.
Should the Rockets defeat Golden State in Game 2 of the series Wednesday, they will travel to Oakland for Game 3 this Sunday with momentum on their side.
Houston entered Game 2 third in the playoffs in scoring with 109.2 per game.
