Speaking to the media Wednesday, General Manager Daryl Morey said the team is looking forward to another run next season.
"We took them to seven. Give them credit, they beat us," Morey said. "They have a great team, we have a great team. We are excited to go at it again."
The Rockets GM added that Chris Paul took the loss to the Warriors the hardest because of his injury.
Morey on CP3: He took it the hardest because he knew, if he hadn't had the unfortunate injury he is dragging us to the goal line. #Rockets— David Nuño (@DavidNunoABC13) May 30, 2018
"If you win 65, you can win the title. We didn't do it but historically that is good enough to win," Morey said.
The Rockets will look towards free agency and re-signing key pieces to make a trip back to the West Finals, and hopefully, the NBA Finals.
Morey on Warrior fatigue: with our winning, with our players, our locker our coaches, we are going to have the pick of free agents. The high end ones and the Luc's, PJ etc....— David Nuño (@DavidNunoABC13) May 30, 2018
