Saturday January 20 finds the West’s top two teams tipping off. The Warriors arrive looking to extend their consecutive road winning streak to 15 games after beating the Bulls. The Rockets also won their last game against the Timberwolves despite being short handed.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Warriors winning three of the four contests. So far this year the teams have split their first two games. The Warriors hold the all-time record having bested the Rockets in 120 of their 212 matches.
Golden State Warriors
During the Warrior 14-0 road winning streak they’ve had some big wins. Specifically, the Warriors dealt with the Cavaliers rather easily and hung on to beat the Raptors. In a season with little regular season motivation this game may offer some inspiration to remind Houston just how far they are behind the champs in terms of matching up.
Granted Houston playing without the services of arguably their best defender will offer the ability for excuses. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant learned Thursday they will start in the All-Star Game and were the only teammates to make the starting unit.
Several Warriors missed the recent due to injury. Draymond Green is nursing soreness in his shoulder, but expected to play. Andre Iguodala has been dealing with a calf contusion making his presence uncertain.
And, Jordan Bell who left the court in a wheel chair after spraining his ankle won’t be available until next month.
It’s been one heck of a week for the Houston Rockets who closed out the NBA MLK Jr. Day schedule with anything but a peaceful demonstration.
Since then the NBA decided James Harden and Chris Paul went to the Clippers locker room to act as peace keepers deeming their actions should not be punished.
Their teammates Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green weren’t as quite so lucky as they each received two game suspensions for their part in the affair.
Fortunately for the Rockets it didn’t matter in Ariza and Green’s first game missed as they handily beat the Wolves. It’s not had to suspect this game will offer stiffer competition. Both players will be back in uniform for the Rockets next game Monday.
Zhou Qi has an elbow injury which has kept him out the past three games and is questionable for this match. Additionally, Troy Williams suffered a sprained MCL and is also questionable this evening.

Regardless of the Rockets missing players they’ll be motivated to win this game. Unlike some teams who might sleep on this meeting, don’t expect the Warriors to not use the opportunity to light up the Rockets at home.

This is the final game of a 5-game road trip for the Warriors which historically can be a trap game, but Golden State will use this match to send a message.
