Who’s Playing

Golden State @ Houston

Current Records: Golden State 37-13; Houston 14-35

What to Know

The Houston Rockets have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Golden State Warriors and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 20 of 2020. Houston will take on Golden State at 8 p.m. ET Monday at Toyota Center after having had a few days off. The Rockets need to shore up a defense that is allowing 116.84 points per contest.

Houston received a tough blow this past Friday as they fell 125-110 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Center Christian Wood (21 points) and small forward Garrison Mathews (21 points) were the top scorers for Houston. Garrison Mathews’ performance made up for a slower matchup against the San Antonio Spurs last week.

Meanwhile, Golden State came out on top in a nail-biter against the Brooklyn Nets this past Saturday, sneaking past 110-106. The Warriors’ small forward Andrew Wiggins looked sharp as he had 24 points along with eight rebounds.

The Rockets are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in 15 of their 22 home games.

Golden State’s victory lifted them to 37-13 while Houston’s defeat dropped them down to 14-35. If Golden State want to win, they will need to focus on stopping Houston’s Mathews, who had 21 points, and Christian Wood, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 15 boards. We’ll see whether or not they are up to the challenge.
