No one said it would be easy. The Rockets have dropped Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals to the Golden State Warriors.

Houston fans seemed stunned as they left the Toyota Center on Monday night. The Rockets lost the first game at home 119 to 106.

Kevin Durant was the difference maker, finishing the night with 37 points. But fans are not letting the loss stop their optimism for the series.

"I think they'll bring it. They have to. Not everybody was playing their best," one fan said.

"We are not getting the same calls. And we are in Houston and not getting the same calls. But we have to stop Kevin Durant," another fan told Eyewitness News.

Head coach Mike D'Antoni says his team has to put the loss behind them and focus on Game 2 Wednesday night.

"Can live with that (Durant), but you can't live with that and make mistakes. The combination of the two is devastating," D'Antoni said.
