Warriors vs Rockets Season Series

Golden State already has clinched the season series with two wins very early in the season – they haven’t played since Nov. 20. Houston has lost 12 consecutive games to the Warriors, marking their longest streak in the all-time series. The 12-game winning streak is also Golden State’s longest active against any opponent. The Rockets also have lost 15 of the past 19 at home vs. the Dubs.


Why Bet on Golden State Warriors?

Golden State won its fifth game in a row Tuesday, 104-100 over Dallas to snap the Mavs’ seven-game winning streak. Draymond Green made two huge plays down the stretch for the Warriors, blocking Daniel Gafford with 1:30 remaining, before giving Golden State an eight-point lead with a layup on the next possession. He had 11 points. The Mavericks cut the deficit to 102-100 with 15 seconds remaining, but the Warriors were able to close out the game with late free throws from Klay Thompson.

@ Heat – W113-92

Steph Curry had a rough night with only 13 points on 5-for-18 shooting but added seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal. Curry was coming off of a 33-point performance with seven triples, but he had his lowest-scoring performance since March 3, which was when the Warriors were blown out by Boston so badly that Steph only played 17 minutes. Curry was still able to knock down at least three 3-pointers for the 12th straight game on Tuesday.

Draymond Green posted a full line with 11 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals and has been a major factor in the team’s five-game winning streak. Andrew Wiggins was excellent with 23 points and is ending the season on a strong note by reaching the 20-point mark in three of his last four games.

“It was our defense that got us the win,” Coach Steve Kerr said. “Holding those guys to 100 points is pretty difficult. I thought (Wiggins) was brilliant. He put in so much effort just trying to make Luka (Doncic) work. Luka was amazing as he always is, but that effort really set a tone.”

The Warriors have allowed 99.0 points per game during the past five, second-fewest behind only Miami (97.0 ppg). In that span, Golden State is ranked second in opponent field goal percentage (42.4 FG%), trailing only Milwaukee (42.3 FG%) and fourth in 3-point field goal percentage (32.0 3P%). In the last five games only the Spurs (113) scored more than 100 points against the Warriors – Miami (92), Orlando (93), Charlotte (97) and Dallas (100).

The Mavericks entered the last game averaging 118.7 points per game, seventh in the league, and only for the sixth time this season was held to 100 points or less (0-6 in those games). This season, Golden State has a 21-4 record when holding opponents under 110 points (league average – 114.4 ppg).

The Warriors are 41-34 overall, 19-19 at home and 22-15 on the road this season. A win tonight would give the Warriors a winning season for the 38th time in franchise history and the 11th time in the last 12 seasons, including the last four.

Promising young forward Jonathan Kuminga missed his fourth straight game Tuesday but is expected to play Thursday in such an important matchup.

Why Bet on Houston Rockets?

Houston (38-37) has followed an 11-game winning streak with back-to-back losses following a 113-106 defeat at Minnesota on Tuesday. The Rockets led by as much as 11 before the Wolves closed the first half on a 21-4 run. Minnesota led 54-45 at halftime and never trailed again.

“It’s tough to do that in the NBA, win that many games in a row,” Houston coach Ime Udoka, the Western Conference coach of the month for March, said before the game regarding his team’s 11-game win streak. “Players understand they have to increase their role, be more efficient. We’ve had to make some quick adjustments.”

Rising star Jalen Green had 26 points, six assists and five rebounds and is averaging 30.8 points per game over his last 10 appearances. He struggled with his deep-range shooting (2-of-11) Tuesday, though the entire team was ineffective from beyond the arc (14-of-48).

Fred VanVleet was just 4-for-13 from deep but finished with 22 points, five rebounds and five assists. FVV is struggling at the wrong time, failing to reach the 20-point mark in five of his last eight appearances, a span where he’s shooting just 41.4 percent from the field and 37.8 percent from deep. Since having double-digit assists in three straight games from March 16-21, FVV has not recorded more than 7 in any of the past six games (5.8 apg).

Jabari Smith had 18 points and eight rebounds. Smith has topped the 15-point mark in his last four games following a one-game absence due to a one-game suspension, averaging 19.0 points and 5.8 rebounds in that span. Rookie Cam Whitmore provided a boost off the bench with 14 points . After a nine-game absence, Whitmore has been available to play in the last two games and averaging 13.5 points in them while playing 22.5 minutes.

Including Thursday, the Rockets will play 3 of their next 4 at home before finishing the season with a 3-game road trip. They are 9-3 over their past 12 home games and are 26-12 at Toyota Center overall this season (14-27 in 2022-23). Overall, Houston is 31-5 when leading after three quarters of play this season (15-12 in 2022-23) and 7-32 when tied or trailing (7-48 in 2022-23). It is 10-10 in games decided by five or fewer points this season (9-8 in 2022-23), including 8-4 by three or fewer (5-4 in 2022-23).

Star center Alperen Sengun remains sidelined by an ankle injury and probably will not make it back this season. Sengun is one of six players in the NBA averaging at least 21.0 ppg, 9.0 rpg and 5.0 apg this season, joining Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Dončić, Joel Embiid, Nikola Jokić and Julius Randle.
