    Rockets coach D'Antoni: Warriors 'not gonna stop us either'

    Last regular season, the Warriors were No. 1 in offensive rating at (113.2).

    The Rockets were No. 2 (111.8).

    And with Chris Paul now onboard, Houston's head coach is feeling even better about his team's offense.

    In year 1 under D'Antoni, the Rockets shot an unprecedented 40.3 3-point attempts per game.

    They made them at a 35.7 percent clip -- good for just 15th in the league.

    Last regular season, Golden State was No. 2 in defensive rating (101.1), while Houston was No. 18 (106.4).

    The Rockets won the first of four meetings last year, and the Warriors took the final three.

    This year, Golden State hosts the Rockets on Opening Night and will play in Houston on Jan. 4 and Jan. 20.
