The Rockets may have exited the NBA playoffs at the hands of the Warriors for the fourth time in five years, but owner Tilman Fertitta insists they will win titles with James Harden on their roster.

Stephen Curry's 33 points on Friday helped the Warriors to a 118-113 victory in Game 6, which sealed a 4-2 series win and a spot in the Western Conference finals for the fifth consecutive season.

The Warriors, seeking a third straight NBA title, have proved a thorn in Houston's side in recent seasons, and Fertitta was quick to praise Golden State for once again getting the better of the Rockets.

"I know that we're going to rise to the occasion and our time is going to come," Fertitta said. "James is 30 years old (in August). Michael (Jordan) didn't win his first championship until (28). Hakeem (Olajuwon) didn't win his first championship until (31).

"I can promise you, we're going to win some championships with James Harden, because we are not going to sit here. We will go to battle every year.

"We're going to have a strong offseason, and we're going to do whatever we can to be a better team. We are not going to sit on our hands, I can promise you that."

Houston had lost the first two games of the series but fought back to 2-2 before losing Game 5 on Wednesday, when they led in the fourth quarter only to be defeated 104-99 at Oracle Arena.

"They showed why they're the champions," he said. "We're gonna learn from it, and we're gonna come back next year, and we're gonna kick their a-- at some point. I can promise you that.
