Prediction

The Warriors offense exploded in the last game at home against the Spurs scoring 132 points in the game but they'll face the #1 defense in the NBA. The Rockets are allowing 106 points per game and the Warriors 117 per game. The Warriors haven't been able to win a game on the road so far this season and the Rockets have lost only 1 game at home. I'd tell you to take the Rockets but they have very important players out due to injuries while the Warriors are full healthy. I'm going with the Warriors on this one.
