Mike D’Antoni: Pressure is on Warriors for Game 4
Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni has an interesting view of how the Western Conference Finals are unfolding.
According to D’Antoni, all the pressure is on the Golden State Warriors for Game 4 — not his Rockets, who are down 2-1 in the series.
Mike D'Antoni on Game 4: "Right now, to me, Golden State has all the pressure. They got to win tomorrow night. We should come in with a little bit of swagger and gitty up in our game."

It seems like some mind games are at play here. If the Rockets lose Game 4, they’ll be facing the daunting prospect of winning three in a row against Golden State, including one at Oracle Arena. The Warriors have proven they can win in Houston, but the Rockets have yet to show they can win in the Bay Area. Make no mistake, the Warriors won’t be underestimating Houston, but it’s the Rockets who are facing the prospect of a season-ending loss if they can’t take Game 4.
