Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors
The Houston Rockets traded for Chris Paul in the offseason to upgrade at PG and were able to sign P.J. Tucker. The Rockets will need to execute the pick and roll to perfection for a chance at the reigning NBA champions. The glue to the Rockets will be Clint Capela and Trevor Ariza in this game.
There’s not much we don’t know about this Warriors team. Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson are a force. Let’s not forget the Warriors added another lethal shooter with their signing of Nick Young.
This Warriors team will be too much for the Rockets to handle in game one on the road.
Golden State Warriors (-9.5)
