Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors – Game 4
NBA: 09.00 PM EST

Steph Curry appealed to the home fans in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s Game 3, in which his Golden State Warriors rode a huge second half to a comfortable 126-85 win over the Houston Rockets. Curry had his biggest game of the series with a 35-point outburst in the winning effort.
Mike D’Antoni has shown no signs of trying to get away from the isolation-heavy offense that suited the Rockets so well in the regular season. But the Warriors have shut it down now in two consecutive games, as NBA scoring leader James Harden has been held to 47 points combined, after tallying 41 in the first game alone. But Game 4 might be tough for Golden State to maintain that same level of defensive intensity, as they’ll be missing one of their best individual perimeter defenders in Andre Iguodala.
Game 4 is make or break time for a Rockets side that has been viewed as the biggest threat to the Warriors regime in the past four years. They need a monster performance from their stars, and their offensive sets are conducive to producing that type of game from their major contributors. I like James Harden to show why he’s likely the league MVP, and show everything in his offensive skillset in the hopes of drawing Houston even.
