The Houston Rockets have shown up to Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals in a major way. The No. 1 seed has held a double-digit lead for nearly all of their contest against the Golden State Warriors. Kevin Durant has shown up, too, however.
Durant has attempted to keep the Warriors, leading the series 1-0, within striking distance. He has 36 points at the start of the fourth quarter.
It’s been an eventful contest. There’s been some serious trash talking.
That trash talking includes Durant going at it with Chris Paul’s brother, C.J.

This is not the first time Paul’s brother has made headlines during the NBA Playoffs. In the Western Conference Semifinals, he was mistakenly escorted off the floor after a confusing incident with a referee.
Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals is being televised on TNT. The Rockets are leading the Warriors by 14 points with about nine minutes to play.
