Joining Cris Carter, Nick Wright and Jenna Wolfe on First Things First, Sarah Kustok highlights why Golden State fans should be worried about the Warriors in the playoffs. Will Curry, Durant and Klay's injuries derail the champs from repeating?

- I don't want to turn this into a conversation about any teams other than the Warriors, but I'm more concerned about the Warriors because of how much belief I have in the Houston Rockets. And I think when it comes to the Warriors-- we had talked about this last week-- Kevin Durant doesn't concern me as much.

You look at Klay Thompson. His injury doesn't concern me as much. They've still got about 2 and 1/2 weeks left in the season. We know the playoffs and the rounds drag out a bit. But with Steph Curry, with his recurring ankle injuries, and all of these players, the importance that they bring to the team-- if they're not fully healthy, I think they're going to have a whole lot of trouble-- and not just the Houston Rockets, but even the way they line up against the Portland Trail Blazers.

If that ends up being the 2-3, which it's very much looking like, the type of challenges they're going to have in each round is unlike what they had last year well.

- Well, and the other thing that happened this weekend-- and it happened on Friday night. There's NCAA games going on, late West Coast games, so people probably aren't paying attention. But the Warriors lost to the kings. And guess what that means?

The Warriors are not the 1 seed. That is over for them. They would need to go undefeated the rest of the way, and if Houston had its worst 12-game stretch of the season. They would need to go to 12-0 and have Houston go 8-4 to get the 1 seed by a single game.

- I think last week's conversation, we had moved on from Houston was going to be the number 1 seed.

- And I don't think there's any question.

- It was-- we were all assuming last week Houston was going to be the 1 seed.

- We were assuming Golden State was going to rest some players. There was no way they were going to be able to catch Houston given their injury concern.
