The Rockets might have the best record in the NBA but overlook at the Warriors at your own peril. This is still one of the most high-octane teams in the NBA.

Golden State put up a gaudy 113.5 points per game during the regular season, despite missing sharpshooter Stephen Curry for long stretches of the season. Even without Curry, the team still has Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant ready to roll. The Warriors eliminated the Spurs with relative ease in the first round, and they won't need Curry again this round. The Pelicans are going up in flames.

Everyone thought that DeMarcus Cousins' absence would doom the Pelicans, but it only made Anthony Davis a bigger star. The former Kentucky center has been on a tear, putting New Orleans on his back and carrying them through the first round.

Davis averaged 33.0 points, 11.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks help New Orleans sweep the Trail Blazers. With Jrue Holiday blooming as the Pelicans second scorer and Rajon Rondo returning to form, the Warriors won't stand a chance. This team is going to the Western Conference Finals.
