Television analyst Matt Bullard joined me to reflect on Chris Paul‘s career night in the Game 5 clincher vs. Utah and preview the upcoming showdown between the No. 1 Rockets and No. 2 Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

Tucker); how to attack Steph Curry on defense in the aftermath of his MCL injury; and the importance of taking the first two games at home. Tune in:
