Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets Preview, Prediction, and Pick

We love a good NBA match-up, and to start off February on the 5th of the month we have a great game between two future playoff teams in the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. The Warriors are on the road in this one, but have a strong all-around team this year, and also just got Andrew Bogut back from his injury as well. The Warriors are sitting at 28-17 this season, while the Rockets on the other hand are 25-22. Tip off for this game is set for 8:00pm EST on Tuesday, and it's going to be a game that you'll definitely want to watch that features some big names such as James Harden, Jeremy Lin, Stephen Curry, David Lee, and many other players as well.

Through the 30th of January, the Warriors find themselves in the 5th seed in the Western Conference, and they'd love to get into the top four to gain home court advantage. The Warriors have one of the loudest fan bases out there, so playing extra home games would definitely be a perk. With the offense that this team has they've been tough to stop, and I think that their offensive style could be tough to keep up with in postseason play. Stephen Curry was a huge All-Star snub, but expect to see him make some noise against this Rockets defense that struggles against guards.

The Rockets on the other side are sitting in the 8th seed in the West, and a huge reason for this was because of their trade to acquire James Harden. Harden has been a sparkplug for this team, and he's shown that he can be an elite player in this league and also can be a go-to scorer for a team also. The Rockets can score in many ways, and I love the way that they are playing recently. I'm looking at Chandler Parsons to be a major sleeper for the Rockets in this game, and to have a nice stat line.

Tough call here on this big game, and even though the Rockets are on their home floor, I've seen the Warriors show an ability to win big games, even with injured players. I think that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are going to lead the charge here, and also that Jarrett Jack and David Lee will be in for solid games to help the Warriors go into Houston and pull off a nice win. It's going to be a close game when all is said and done, and I'm expecting the Warriors to win it by four.
