The Golden State Warriors try to run their home winning streak to 42 straight games when they welcome in the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.
Steph Curry and company made it 41 straight after holding off Oklahoma City in a game where they fell behind early and blew a lead late. Meanwhile in Houston, the Rockets were getting worked by the Trail Blazers in one of their worst shooting performances of the season.
The Rockets have dropped five of seven overall and are once again flirting with the .500 mark.
Houston comes in off one of their worst performances of the season where they shot 32.5 percent in a 96-79 loss to Portland at home. Houston has had to overcome slow start after slow start as they continue to dig themselves in deep holes early in the first quarter.
Trevor Ariza and Dwight Howard had no hesitation in calling out the team’s lack of energy and poor effort. Howard even went as far to say this team is playing like their bad record.
James Harden will also look to bounce back as he committed 10 turnovers to just 3 assists in Saturday’s loss.
The Warriors meanwhile are having none of the above problems.
Golden State continues to roll and even when they play bad, they still find ways to win, even against good teams. They blew a late lead against the Thunder on Saturday, only to get some late buckets and grab an 8 point win.
Golden State is now a ridiculous 46-4 through their first 50 games and has ran their home winning streak to 41 straight as this team is playing at an unreal level. The Warriors are even playing well for backers as they’ve gone 31-18-1 ATS overall and 13-10 ATS at home.
The Warriors look to make it 3 straight this season as they’ve had their way with Houston. These teams last met on New Years Eve when the Warriors went into Houston and grabbed a 114-110 win. Golden State outrebounded them by 10 as they shot 52% from the field.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Golden State Warriors are just too good. Put them inside Oracle Arena and it doesn’t matter who they’re playing.
The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 against the Warriors and this one should be no different. Curry and company should dominate from the start in a very lopsided win.
