A repeat of last year’s Western Conference finals is on as the defending champions, Golden State Warriors tussle it out with the resurgent Houston Rockets at the Oracle Arena on Friday morning.
The Houston Rockets are in impeccable form and will be looking to extend their 5 game winning streak while the same can’t be said for the Golden State Warriors’ as they have been quite lackluster having won only 3 of their last 5 games.
James Harden, the reigning MVP, is the man the Warriors shall have to keep their tabs on as he has been on high firing form recently setting the record of being the only active NBA player to have 30 or more points in 8 consecutive games averaging 33.3 points and 8.4 assists.
The Golden State Warriors will look for inspiration from the usual suspects, Stephen Curry who has averaged 28.7 points and 5.3 assists plus Kevin Durant with 28.5 points and 7.4 rebounds.

However, Houston Rockets are still without the service of their star point guard, Chris Paul, who is still nursing a hamstring injury.
The Warriors on the other hand are still without DeMarcus, “Boogie” Cousins who is yet to play a minute of basketball this season since his signing from The New Orleans Pelicans.
