What you need to know about the Rockets
The Rockets ended up a good deal behind the Portland Trail Blazers when they played this past Friday, losing 125-110. Houston’s loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of small forward Garrison Mathews, who had 21 points, and center Christian Wood, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 15 boards.
Allowing an average of 116.84 points per game, the Rockets haven’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end, and that could spell trouble against a dynamic offensive team like Golden State. The Rockets do have some offensive firepower themselves, with six players averaging double-digit points per game, led by Wood (17.2), Eric Gordon (14.4), and Jalen Green (14.3). Houston is 21-26-1 against the spread in 2021-22.
What you need to know about the Warriors
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but this past Saturday the Warriors sidestepped the Brooklyn Nets for a 110-106 win. Golden State’s small forward Andrew Wiggins was one of the most active players for the squad, picking up 24 points in addition to eight rebounds.
The Warriors have looked like bona fide NBA title contenders all year. The main reason for their success has been the play of Curry, who is averaging 25.7 points, 6.3 assists, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per game. The 33-year-old point guard is currently the betting favorite to take home this year’s NBA MVP award, and is a threat to erupt every time he steps on the court. Golden State is 27-19-3 against the spread in 2021-22
