It gets underway at 9PM Eastern Time on TNT TV as the Houston Rockets host the Golden St Warriors in Game 2 of their best of seven series. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the home side Houston Rockets favored by -1 ½ points with the total lined at 224 ½ points.

Golden St is up 1-0 in this series as they capture a game in Houston by the score of 119-106 covering as a +2.5 underdog. The Rockets were touted as an improved defensive team entering the playoffs. The improvement wasn’t enough as the Warriors found open spots on the court with their tremendous ball movement. Golden St connected on 52.5% with 13 of 33 going in from three. They were led by Kevin Durant who led the team with 37 points hitting on 14 of 27 shots. He was 3 of 6 from three. In the playoffs Durant is averaging 29 points per game and is hitting on 49.6% from the field. Klay Thompson found open looks throughout the game and was second in scoring for the Warriors with 28 points hitting 9 of 18 shots. Very difficult defensive assignment for the Rockets to try and defend this Golden St team. Warriors are motivated greatly in this series and Houston may be bringing out the best from Golden St.

Houston got 41 points from James Harden with Chris Paul putting in 23 points. Rockets tried putting Chris Paul, James Harden and Clint Capela on Durant and they had trouble containing him. His dribble penetration created space for good looks at the basket. There is no option to double team Durant because it will leave Curry or Thompson open for threes. Rockets have their hands full with Golden St. If they wish to just outscore the Warriors, they will need better production from their supporting cast. Trevor Ariza had only 8 points hitting on 3 of 8 shots.
