It’s a light slate of games across the NBA world on Thursday. In this game it’s a big showdown when the Houston Rockets make the trip to Oracle Arena to take on the Golden State Warriors.
The first time these two teams played this year the Rockets came out ahead 107-86.
The Houston Rockets got off to a slow start to the season but they come into this game playing a lot better having won five games in a row and nine of the last ten games.
Chris Paul is out with injury but the team really hasn’t missed a beat with James Harden taking over the show and he is going to be key in this game.
While most good players average 20 or 25 points a game Harden is trying to raise that bar and each of the last three games he has scored 40 points.
In this game it’s going to come down to how Harden does. If he can run up the score in this game that could keep the Rockets in and maybe they could pull the big upset in this game.
If Harden struggles in this game they will have zero chance to come out with a victory in this game.
Golden State Warriors
On the other side of this matchup is the Golden State Warriors who have had an up and down season but they still like the team to beat in the NBA.
For the Warriors their strength is once again shooting the ball with success and the offense is key to how well this team can do this year.
They come into this game averaging 115.8 points per game and in this game they need to do a couple things to come out with a victory.
They need the offense to get out to a fast start, and they need the defense to play well enough against James Harden to not let him drop 40 points again.
