Paul was hard pressed when paired with Thompson last season.
Although their forwards remain suspect, it's one of the most talented backcourts that the National Basketball Association has seen in some time - and it will have to play up to its full potential to compete with Golden State.
"Golden State set the bar really high", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said of his team responding to a 55-win season, third best in the National Basketball Association, with significant changes. It is good for basketball.
The Warriors shouldn't miss a beat after winning the National Basketball Association title last year for the second time in three years.
Green said, according to Mark Medina of the Mercury News: "I don't know how serious they take defense with that comment but they added some good defensive players".
His best performance was in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, putting up an 18-point performance on 3-4 shooting from three, to go along with five assists and three steals.

Conte questions Chelsea's ability to defend title
The Nigeria global has emerged as a key player for Antonio Conte and played a huge role in the club's title triumph last season. A Cesar Azpilicueta own goal gave Palace the lead before Tiemoue Bakayoko equalised in the 18th minute.
He added to CBS Sports: "What do you tell a team that's won 67 games, or 65-plus the last three years, two championships?"
Paul has been fairly successful when it comes to facing Golden State. But we're going to play some defense. His 22.8 scoring average in 38 meetings with Golden State is the veteran's highest against any opponent. All those little things are built on the foundation that we set past year, and obviously Kevin (Durant) is a part of that.
They hope that the offensive pressure will ease up on Harden with Paul in the picture.
Harden's plus-minus was negative in all four games, totaling minus-49.
The Warriors confirmed Iguodala's absence prior to tip-off, with the two-time champion still recovering from a back strain.
