Golden State Warriors Betting Preview
The Golden State Warriors will be eager to build some momentum after blowing past the Kings in a 122-114 road win on Friday night. Stephen Curry led the way with a monster game of 41 points on 14 of 19 shooting, Klay Thompson added 18 points with four assists while Jonathan Kuminga chipped in with 12 points off the bench. As a team, the Warriors shot 55 percent from the field and 14 of 32 from the 3-point line as they caught fire and poured in 36 points in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, before they exploded for 39 points in the third to push the margin out to 18 points to put the game to bed early.
Houston Rockets Betting Preview
Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets are still searching for their first win of the season after coming up just short to the Spurs in a 126-122 overtime road loss on Friday. Alperen Sengun led the way with 25 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, Fred VanVleet added 24 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists while Jalen Green chipped in with 22 points on 10 of 20 shooting. As a team, the Rockets shot 52 percent from the field and eight of 32 from the 3-point line as they really took it to the Spurs until they blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead to eventually fall short in overtime.
The Warriors are expecting to have Draymond Green in the lineup, but they could be without Stephen Curry and Jonathan Kuminga who are both listed as questionable. The Rockets are still missing Victor Oladipo and Jock Landale, but they were more than competitve against the Spurs in their last outing. Still, the Warriors' win over the Kings would've gave them plenty of confidence and they're only going to improve with Green joining the squad. This should be a close one, but I'm sticking with the Warriors in this spot.
