Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets Details
Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets
The Golden State Warriors have been the top team in the NBA since the 2014-15 season. In that span, they’ve finished at the top of the NBA standings for three consecutive seasons, including a season in which they finished with an all-time-best 73-9 record. They have reached three NBA Finals and won two championship titles. The Warriors’ starting lineup, which includes Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, is widely considered to be one of the best ever assembled.
If any team in the West is going to dethrone the Warriors, it might just be the Houston Rockets. In the 2017 offseason, the Rockets made a blockbuster trade for Chris Paul, who had previously starred for the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul joins Rockets’ shooting guard James Harden, who is widely recognized as one of the top players in the NBA.
The Warriors and Rockets play similar styles: they’re both deadly from behind the three-point line. Stephen Curry holds the NBA record for the most three-pointers made in a season, and the Rockets attempted over 40 three-point shots per game in 2016-17, which set an NBA record. With the addition of Chris Paul, the Rockets’ three point game may be even more dangerous.
The teams have met in two recent playoff series. The Warriors won four games to one in both series.
