The action gets underway at 9PM Eastern Time on TNT TV as the Houston Rockets are home to the Golden St Warriors. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the road team Golden St Warriors -1 with the over under odds lined at 219 ½ points.

Houston has evened up this series at 2-2 as they beat Golden St on the road in Game 4 by the score of 95-92. Neither team shot the ball very well. Both teams shot 39%. Chris Paul gave Houston a lift in the victory by scoring 27 points hitting on 10 of 20 shots. James Harden had 30 points but his three point shooting was off with 3 of 12. Houston must be concerned about their supporting cast. They struggled despite the win. In consecutive games PJ Tucker and Trevor Ariza did not produce much scoring. Tucker though was strong on the glass with 16 rebounds. Houston went with only seven players in their rotation. Eric Gordon had 14 points but went 4 of 14 from the floor and 1 of 8 from three. Big man Clint Capela did not score much in this win but did grab 13 rebounds.

Golden St once again was sloppy handling the basketball. Warriors turned the ball over 16 times. They need to keep this number in single digits. Early in his career Stephen Curry and his Warriors team had struggled with turnovers. It was an issue until fixed in their championship appearances. Kevin Durant had 27 points with 12 boards in the loss but did not have a good shooting performance going 9 of 24. Durant has been a consistent force for Golden St in this series and the playoffs. Klay Thompson has been inconsistent in the playoffs. With many options on the court Thompson gets open for good looks. But he has to shoot well as he was only 4 of 13 in the Game 4 defeat. From here on out the teams play every other day.
