Just see for yourself:

Where to begin?

First things first: Why three years?

The Warriors and Rockets have met in the postseason in four of the last five seasons, including Golden State and Houston's recently completed second-round matchup, in which the Dubs prevailed in six games

They also played in last year's Western Conference finals, which the Warriors won in seven games.

They did not, however, face each other in the 2017 playoffs.

They did, however, face each other in each of the two years prior, with Golden State winning both of those series.

So, sure, in the last three years -- which is really two playoff series -- the Rockets have gone 5-8 in the postseason against the Warriors.

BUT, in reality, they're actually 7-16 against Golden State in recent playoff history.

No wonder he chose three years.
