World Cup Betting Odds:
The Rockets have the misfortune of bouncing back from a humbling loss. What’s worse is that they’ll be looking to rebound in Golden State. The Warriors are close to unbeatable at home considering that they went 40-9 during the regular season in Golden State. What’s even more concerning is how the Warriors were able to shut out the Rockets in Game 3, which is something that they’re not known for doing. All in all, the Warriors finished the regular season with the NBA’s 18th best defense, so it’s safe to say that they’re not a defensive-first team. On the contrary, Golden State finished with the NBA’s best scoring offense. Yet somehow, Houston was held to 85 points in Game 3. Unless they can break a 100-digit performance, the Rockets will be handed a landslide of a loss this evening.
Players to Watch: James Harden (28.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 7.2 apg), Chris Paul (20.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 5.9 apg), and Eric Gordon (14.0 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 1.5 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors really only need to not mess up this evening’s momentum as all the chips seem to be in their concern. Not only will Golden State be playing at home, they’ll be coming off a win and they seem to be hitting all cylinders. Kevin Durant is coming off a 25 point performance, Curry finished Game 3 with 35 and Draymond Green put up an astounding 17 rebounds on the night. We’ll see how the Rockets attempt to stop this machine.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (29.2 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 4.4 apg), Stephen Curry (23.9 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 4.3 apg), and Klay Thompson (20.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.3 apg).
