Two of the most offensively gifted teams get set to do battle on ESPN as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets go at it in Houston.
Golden State comes off a blow out win over the Pelicans on ring night as Steph Curry was flawless in the win.
As for the Rockets, they were embarrassed on their home floor against the Denver Nuggets.
If the Warriors season looks anything like their first game against the Pelicans, they’ll have no problem defending their title.
Golden State, behind Steph Curry, absolutely dominated the Pelicans on opening night as they celebrated their 2014-2015 championship ring night in style. Still, the Warriors want this season to be even better than last season in terms of regular season wins. With that being the case, Golden State will have to surpass 67 wins.
G Steph Curry finished with 40 points on 14 of 26 shooting and drilled 5 of 12 three pointers attempted. His splash brother, Klay Thompson, finished with just 9 points on 3 of 8 shooting. Expect him to have a much better game against Houston here on Friday.
C Andrew Bogut left the opener with a concussion and did not travel with the team. His status remains unclear for the near future, but that means Festus Ezeli, who had 13 points in Bogut’s place, will get much more playing time.
Houston was beaten in just about every aspect of the game in their home opener against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night. With a team that is expected to do big things, the Rockets were drilled 105-85.
This marked the first time since the 1982 season that Houston lost by 20 or more in their home opener.
The good news for Houston is that they’ll at least be receiving C Dwight Howard back, who was suspended for the opening game. Howard got called for four flagrant fouls in the postseason last year and that violates the NBA flagrant foul rule and he served his suspension on the home opener.
G James Harden struggled in his season debut as he finished with 22 points on just 6 of 21 shooting. He also shot just 2 of 12 from behind the 3 point arc. Expect him to play with a bit of revenge here on Friday as he looks to forget about his opening night struggles.
Houston has gone 0-5 in the last 5 meetings with Golden State head-to-head.
