Match Preview

Another interesting confrontation could have taken place on February 20, if not for Golden State injuries, since it was through this factor that Houston would come out on the parquet as a clear favorite, and we prepared a prediction for this meeting. What to expect from the fight?

Houston Rockets

Rockets does not live up to the expectations that have been put on the club since the beginning of the season and it seems that everyone suffers because of this. The guys of Michael D’Antoni are trying to create a comfortable playing environment for James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but the stellar bunch does not try too quickly to find a common language on the floor.

In a previous meeting, Houston shot in a match against Boston, thereby showing its serious intentions for the season 116-105. The team is ready to continue in the same vein, but the players would not hurt to organize.

Golden State Warriors

Warriors will miss the main fight for the championship this year, because it is unlikely that they will be able to change everything dramatically and start winning almost every match. Steve Kerr’s wards performed terribly before the break, so it’s time to change something.

The Warriors lost four games in a row, and with such a mood it will be difficult to change the situation for the better. In a word, the hosts will try to impose the struggle on one of the leaders of the West with not even an optimal composition.

Expert Pick and Prediction

No matter how hard the Warriors try, the lack of leaders has a strong impact on motivation and negatively affects the game. Golden State has lost almost everything this season, so Houston has a good opportunity to take advantage of the opponent’s problems.
