Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets, last game of the day, one of the most interesting for this first week of January. The Warriors continue to improve the overall record, but at home in the last two games they suffered a pair of defeats. It has not been easy the last week for the champions, problems to score and defend. The Rockets are definitely not the same team as last season, the record has been negative on the road so far.
Golden State Warriors: It’s time to win.
The last two games at home for the Warriors were defeats, the first against the Lakers 101-127 was quite a surprise on Christmas Day. The last home loss was also in December and two days later against the Trailblazers 109-110. At home the record is still positive with fifteen wins and only 5 losses. Starting the season the Warriors had a winning streak of six games at home.
At home the Warriors are scoring an average of 115.3 points per game, 47.6% field goal, 81.70% free throws 12.10 three pointers per game. The defense allows up to 111.2 points per game, 11.05 three pointers and 41.05% field goal.
In the last game at home Curry was the leader with 25 points, Durant with 25, Green with only three, and Thompson with 32 points. All scored more points compared to the game against the Lakers.
Houston Rockets: Negative record.
The Rockets this season on the road have a negative record with eight wins and ten losses. 3-5 in the last eight games on the road, the last game was a victory against the Pelicans 108-104. The problem on the road has been merely offensive, the Rockets are scoring less than 108 points on the road, last season that was the average.
On the road the Rockets are scoring 106.2 points per game, 76.4% free throw and 44.3% field goal. The strength of the Rockets is in the three pointers, up to 14.06 three pointers per game with 33.2% effectiveness. The defense allows 106.6 points per game.
Harden is number one on the Rockets list with 33.3 points per game, Rivers with 10.5, Capela 17.0, Eric Gordon 15.7, Paul 15.6 and Anthony 13.4. The problem with Harden has been the bad passes this season with 108 and up to 45 lost balls in the season.
