Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets Predictions & Tips


A meeting with Houston is just what the doctor ordered for Golden State. The Rockets are on a 17-game losing skid right now and are ravaged by injuries. Stephen Curry will put Houston to the sword here as the Warriors get back on track.

  • Houston have now lost 17 straight games
  • Stephen Curry leads the league in three-pointers having made 180 of his 435 attempts

  • Curry loves playing in Texas – he has averaged 37.25 points in his four visits to the state this season
  • Draymond Green is averaging 8.5 assists per game
  • Houston rank 22nd in the NBA in average points allowed per game
  • The Rockets are ravaged by injury with nine players either ruled out or in doubt

  • Houston and Golden State are yet to meet this season
  • The Rockets have won six of the last eight regular season meetings

Golden State Warriors Form & Team News


Golden State’s recent form makes for ugly reading with five defeats coming in their last six games. Four of those were one-sided blow-outs but to put them into context, the Warriors were playing top opposition in the Western Conference.

They have gone 2-2 in their previous four visits to Texas this season and playing in the State certainly agrees with Stephen Curry. Curry, one of the NBA’s best scorers, has averaged 37.25 points per game on Texas soil and when he is available Golden State always have a shot.

One man who is not available is Klay Thompson, who remains sidelined with the Achilles injury he sustained prior to the start of the season. Also missing for the rest of the season is Marquese Chriss (broken leg).

Houston Rockets Form & Team News


Houston are mired in a brutal run of form that dates back to early February. They lost 13 straight before the All-Star break and have not fared much better since the season resumed, with another four losses taking their skid to 17 games. It is fair to say that they are merely playing out their schedule at this point.

The Rockets are plagued with injuries at this point too – it would be quicker to say who is fit than who is injured! Dante Exum and Eric Gordon will definitely sit this one out, while there are doubts over the fitness of Danuel House, Rodion Kurucs, Ben McLemore, David Nwaba, PJ Tucker, John Wall and Christian Woods.
