Aussies taking on the best in the NBA finals
AFTER swatting aside New Orleans and Memphis, Andrew Bogut's Golden State Warriors will face a much tougher challenge when they take on Houston in the NBA's best-of-seven western conference finals starting in Oakland, California, tomorrow morning.
Led by Dwight Howard and James Harden, the Rockets became just the ninth team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 deficit when they beat the LA Clippers 113-100 in game seven of the series.
Howard had 16 points and 15 rebounds, while Harden finished with 31 points as Houston reached the western conference finals for the first time since 1997.
Meanwhile, Bogut's Australian Boomers teammate Matthew Dellavedova (pictured) will be in action when his Cleveland Cavaliers, led by superstar LeBron James, take on the Atlanta Hawks in the eastern conference finals series starting Thursday morning.
