The Warriors have once again been lasering threes this season, leading the league in 3P attempts and 3P makes per game. They have also embraced their fluid passing system once again, leading the NBA in assists per game. With Steph Curry in the form that he has been in this season, add to that the return to form of Klay Thompson, the Warriors have looked like their majestic best. However, due to regular injury issues, they are only the 10th seed at the time of writing.
The Rockets on the other hand have been horrendous this campaign, sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. They have won 13 games all season and have the worst offensive rating in the entire NBA.

Rockets vs. Warriors Betting Prediction
On face value, the Warriors should win this game without question. Houston come into this game without a win in seven and are heavily under-equipped. Already comprising of the worst offense in the league, without Green and Porter, they should be expected to be even worse. At the Chase Center the Dubs have an impeccable record this season, winning 22 of their 29 games.
