The Houston Rockets boast an NBA-best 25-5 record and have the league’s top offense based on offensive efficiency, but general manager Daryl Morey said those achievements aren’t especially important to him.

Foremost in Morey’s mind: beating the Golden State Warriors, who have won the Western Conference title the past three seasons, including two NBA championships, and eliminated the Rockets from the playoffs in 2015 and ’16. “It’s the only thing we think about,” Morey said on ESPN Radio’s The Ryen Russillo Show on Thursday. “I think I’m not supposed to say that, but we’re basically obsessed with ‘How do we beat the Warriors?’
