Posted by: Charlie Smith
Friday’s NBA basketball betting action offers but one postseason matchup. However, it’s a pretty enticing one as it brings us Game 6 of the Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets series. The Warriors are coming off a much needed 104-99 home win that snapped Houston’s two game winning streak.

Golden State Warriors
The news is out and the Warriors will have to close out this series without the aid of Kevin Durant. Durant had been the Warriors leading point scorer in the postseason so far, so his absence is a pretty big loss for Golden State. However, at the end of the day, Golden State still has a heap of superstars to turn to. Nevertheless, it’ll be up to the Warriors roster to step up and fill that void. For example, Durant exited Game 5 during the 3rd. And despite that loss, the Warriors were still able to hang on for a 104-99 win to take a 3-2 lead in this series. To make up for Durant’s contribution, Golden State will likely turn to their backcourt. Game 5 saw Klay Thompson deliver his bets performance of the series, nailing 27 points off of 11-20 shooting. Additionally, Curry came alive down the stretch to finish with 25 and secure Golden State’s win.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (34.2 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 4.9 apg), Stephen Curry (23.5 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 5.2 apg), and Klay Thompson (17.5 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.6 apg).
The Rockets have no choice but to take advantage of their home court this Friday night. With Durant sidelined, Houston is an unquestionable favorite at home. Since Houston is 12-0 in their last 12 home games, it’s clear they’re a near unstoppable force at the Toyota Center. However, a little more contribution out of Chris Paul this evening wouldn’t hurt the Rockets. In Game 5, Paul only delivered 11 points off of 3-14 shooting. Additionally, Paul would deliver a pitiful 0-6 shooting from beyond the arc.
Players to Watch: James Harden (31.3 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 6.8 apg), Eric Gordon (18.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 1.0 apg), and Chris Paul (16.0 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 5.4 apg).
