Good point about the Warriors, but their weakness on the boards and lack of inside scoring punch really applies to every team with a strong front line. The Warriors were up 2–1 in the series, with a point differential of +30 before Iguodala got injured. In game 4, the Warriors led 80–70 to start the 4th quarter, and in game 5, the Warriors led by 4 in the 4th quarter, and missed a wide open corner 3 that would have put them up by 2 with 42 seconds left.

I would think the Warriors were more upset with their own poor execution than being worried the Rockets. And now, that Houston defense no long exists.
