The Golden State Warriors need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 113.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.3 points and 6.2 assists while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.2 points and 4.5 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and James Wiseman is grabbing six rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game.
The Houston Rockets are still looking for their first victory since February 4. The Houston Rockets are averaging 107.3 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.2 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 22 points and 10.2 rebounds while John Wall is averaging 21 points and six assists.

The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Rockets are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games and 16-36 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Warriors last 10 overall. The under is 35-15-1 in Rockets last 51 home games. The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Golden State Warriors are a hit or miss club and you're never sure which team is going to show up from game to game, and I'm not eager to lay this many points with the way they've played the last week. However, as I've said many times in the past, the Houston Rockets are fade material until further notice. The Rockets haven't won a game in over a month and are losing their last five games by an average of 18.2 points while shooting 39.7 percent from the field. Big number or not, backing the Rockets these days is not an option.
