Rockets' D'Antoni on Warriors: 'They're not invincible'

Publish date:

Houston Rockets coach MikeD'Antoni says the Golden State Warriors aren't invincible and that his team is looking forward to this upcoming season.

D'Antoni and the Rockets lost to the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals in seven games. Houston took a 3-2 series lead heading into Game 6, but Chris Paul missed Game 6 and 7 with a hamstring injury and the Rockets weren't able to close the series without their star point guard.

The Rockets' roster will look a little different this season. They lost Trevor Ariza to the Phoenix Suns and Luc Mbah a Moute to the Los Angeles Clippers, but are expected to add Carmelo Anthony once he gets waived by the Atlanta Hawks. Houston also signed athletic swingman James Ennis, who averaged 7.2 points per game in 2017-18. The Rockets re-signed big man Clint Capela to a five-year, $90 million deal Friday and D'Antoni says he's really happy for the 24-year-old.
