at Houston on Friday night in a reprise
of last season s NBA Western Confer-
ence finals, with Stephen Curry leading
the Warriors and getting the better of
Rockets star James Harden.
Curry outscored Harden 25-16 and

Elsewhere, Russell Westbrook sank a
long-range tying basket and scored 48
points as Oklahoma City beat Orlando
in an overtime thriller, LeBron James
led Cleveland over his old team Miami
in the Cavaliers home opener, and
Detroit continued its perfect start with
an overtime win against Chicago.
Golden State improved to 2-0 and
the Rockets fell to 0-2 after a clash of
two teams again expected to challenge
as best in the West.
Harden struggled with his shot for a
second straight game. The MVP run-
ner-up finished 4 of 18, including 1 of
10 from three-point range.
Dwight Howard had nine points and
seven rebounds for Houston in his first
game after serving a one-game suspen-

BASEL---Roger Federer advanced to
the Swiss Indoors final yesterday to
set up his first title match against
Rafael Nadal since May 2013.
The top-seeded Federer eased to a
6-3, 6-4 win in 64 minutes against
unseeded Jack Sock of the United
States in the semifinals.
Earlier, the third-seeded Nadal
played his best tennis of the week in
beating Richard Gasquet of France 6-
4, 7-6 (7).
Almost two-and-a-half years after
Nadal beat Federer in two sets for the
Rome Masters title, the 34th match-
up of their careers will come at Fed-
erer s hometown event.
"I have played against Roger hun-
dreds of times around the world," said
Nadal, who has a 23-10 hold over his
old rival. "In Madrid a couple of times
in finals, but I have never played him
in his home."
Outside of finals, their last com-
petitive meeting was in January 2014
when Nadal won an Australian Open
semifinal in three straight sets.
Federer had a smoother path to the
final and a possible seventh title at
the tournament where he was a ball
boy two decades ago.
Sock did stretch the match beyond
the one-hour mark when Federer was
two points from victory serving with
a 5-2 lead.
The 29th-ranked American reeled
off three straight returns for winners
to stun Federer and break serve for
the only time.
Federer clinched victory on his next
After three straight three-set
matches at Basel, Nadal finally got a
more straightforward win.
Nadal overcame dropping his serve
in the opening game of each set and
saved two set points for the fifth-
seeded Gesquet in the tiebreaker. He
clinched the victory on his second
match point when Gasquet sent a
Nadal seemed in trouble trailing 4-
3 in the first set when he called for
the trainer at a changeover.
Returning with tape below his right
knee, Nadal quickly turned the match
around and broke Gasquet s serve
twice to take the first set, clinching
it with a fierce forehand topspin pass-
"I had one scary moment but then
it s fine," said Nadal. "I am happy with
the way the knee answers after that."
Again, Nadal struggled on serve to
start the second set though Gasquet
needed seven break-point chances
before finding a winner in an exchange
of volleys at the net. Nadal leveled
when Gasquet served for the set lead-
Nadal suggested Federer would start
favourite today with a better record
on indoor hard courts.
"I don t have the ideal opponent to
win again, but I won on grass (against
Federer) after a couple of years without
winning," said the two-time Wim-
bledon champion, who named his
2008 win there as his best title match
against the Swiss. (AP
