Can the Rockets Bounce Back in Game 2?

It was the men against the boys in Game 1 of Golden State’s first-round series against Houston, and barring a miracle, things will likely continue to trend that way. The Warriors manhandled the Rockets 104-78 while easily covering the spread as 13-point favorites. Game 2 gets underway at Oracle Arena tonight, but the Dubs may have a different look to them.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 21-2 SU in their last 23 games with one day off between games.
  • The Rockets are 2-6 SU in their last eight games on the road.
  • The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five against Golden State.

Sharpshooter Stephen Curry is listed as questionable for the affair with an ankle injury he suffered in Game 1. Curry didn’t practice on Sunday and was undergoing treatment instead. Curry sat three times in the regular season, and the Warriors went 2-1 SU and 0-3 ATS during that span. One of those games was against the Rockets, but the Warriors still managed to win by a score of 114-110. If Curry can’t go, Shaun Livingston will start in his place.

How bad was Houston’s performance on Saturday? The Rockets trailed 33-15 after one quarter and were down 27 after 24 minutes. Houston is now 1-13 SU in its previous 14 versus Golden State.

When labeled as road underdogs, the Rockets have been going below totals with ease. The UNDER is 5-0 in the Rockets’ last five as road dogs. Sportsbooks opened the total in the 218 ballpark tonight.
