WATCH: Warriors’ Steve Kerr compares Rockets to ‘Game of Thrones’

The HBO saga Game of Thrones has been even more popular than a highly-rated Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets playoff series.

Most of those around the Association are addicted to the international hit. That apparently includes Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

In talking about what he expects from the Rockets in Houston for Game 3 Saturday evening, Kerr compared James Harden and Co. to the hit show.

“Fire and fury.”

In no way is Kerr wrong here. After dropping two consecutive in Oakland to open up the Western Conference Semifinals series, Houston finds itself in must-win mode.

We fully expect a dinged up James Harden and his cast of characters to fight to the death come Saturday night. A loss here would put Houston in a 3-0 series hole, likely leading to Golden State’s fifth consecutive trip to the Western Conference Finals.

For the Rockets, that’d mean “winter is coming.”
