NBA Rumors: Rockets Flying to Bay Area in Case Warriors Beat Clippers

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Friday night at 5:30, streaming live on the MyTeams app.

The Warriors lost Game 5 to the Clippers on Wednesday night and will play Game 6 on Friday night in Los Angeles.

But the Rockets clearly expect Golden State to eventually advance to the next round because they're apparently already Bay Area bound.

At this point, it's unclear if the Rockets' viewing party will be serving pizza or pasta or chicken parm, or perhaps all of the above? Maybe they'll go with salmon and rice instead?

If the Warriors drop Game 6, they will host the Clippers in Game 7 on Sunday afternoon, and there will be another Rockets viewing party in the Bay.

If the Warriors win Game 6, they will host the Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Sunday afternoon at 12:30.

If the Warriors lose Game 6 and Game 7, James Harden and Co. will fly back to Houston to host the Clippers in Game 1 next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Make sense? OK, good.
