The defending champions eliminated the shorthanded San Antonio Spurs in five games, the Rockets also defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves in five games, and the Jazz went six against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The No. 1 seeded Rockets now face the Jazz, with their best-of-seven series beginning Sunday afternoon at the Toyota Center. The Warriors and Pelicans tipped off on Saturday night, with the defending champions opening the series with a win.
