Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 42-21 record on the year. At the present moment, that record is good enough to peg Golden State as the best team in the Pacific Division. Despite their recent struggles, Golden State is still the best team in the Western Conference. However, the Denver Nuggets are but a game behind the Warriors. For that reason the Warriors need to rebound on the road tonight. Notwithstanding that necessity, the Warriors are 4-6 in their last 10 against the Rockets. With this in mind, it’s clear that the Warriors have a lot to prove this evening. After all, they can’t be the best team in the West if they’re consistently bested by Houston.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (27.9 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 5.2 apg), Kevin Durant (27.4 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 5.7 apg), and Klay Thompson (22.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.3 apg).
The Rockets fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 42-25 record that ranks them No. 1 in the Southwest Division. Additionally, Houston’s record pegs them as the 3rd best team in the Western Conference. At the present time Houston is only 3 ½ games behind the Warriors. Given that discrepancy, it’s clear that Houston could mount a surge for the No. 1 spot in the conference. All in all the Rockets have hit their fair share of slumps this season. Nevertheless, it’s clear that they’re catching fire near the end of the season. The momentum they bring into tonight’s matchup should be enough to topple Golden State. After all, the Warriors don’t look great as of late and Durant is listed as day-to-day.
Players to Watch: James Harden (36.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 7.5 apg), Clint Capela (16.8 ppg, 12.5 rpg, 1.4 apg), and Eric Gordon (16.6 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.1 apg).
