It's still early in the Western Conference Finals, but Game 2 feels like a must-win for the Houston Rockets.

After falling to the Warriors at home Monday night, the Rockets say their game plan for Game 2 is a simple one: focus on defense.

"The defensive mistakes, the switches, stuff that we can clean up and fix we just have to do it harder and better," said Rockets point guard Chris Paul.

Paul's teammate James Harden echoed that, saying the team pushed the reset button after Game 1.

"They're good. They're in a good place and all the guys seem happy and motivated," Harden said.
