Warriors vs Rockets
James Harden is a great basketball player. He also has an awesome beard and almost unstoppable drive to the basket. What he lacks though is an abilty to keep his mouth shut when it is needed. There is a Youtube clip of him speaking to his teammates before the game against the Warriors on Saturday. Harden told them that he thinks the Warriors are not a good team although they beat them twice this season. Well after Saturday`s game make it a three times.
Make no mistake, by now most of the Warriors players know what James Harden thinks about them and those who don`t are likely to get informed by their coach Steve Kerr just to give them an extra motivation. Not that they really need that. Leaving aside a bad game against the surging Thunder, the Warriors have looked absolutely fantastic over the last couple of weeks. It has not been even close in these games and it totally makes sense if you know how the Warriors play. If they have a solid shooting night, no team can keep up with them. If they have Bogut playing (he was resting vs OKC), their defense is one of the best in the league. In fact even with Bogut being out for big part of the season, the Warriors are still keeping their opponents at the lowest field goal percentage in the league (.421).
The Warriors pose a problem for the Rockets as they have a great low post defender in Bogut to match well against Dwight Howard and as many points as Harden can score the „Splash Brothers” can score even more. The Warriors have won 3 previous game against the Rockets by an average margin of 16 points. They play at home and want to make Harden to regret his pregame speech 3 days ago. Take the Warriors to cover -7.5 points
