The Houston Rockets are coming off a huge series win after trailing 3-1 to the Clippers, while the Warriors won their series fairly easy, 4-2. This series matchup will feature the MVP Stephen Curry and MVP runner-up James Harden. With that said, you would think this series should be competitive right? Wrong. The Rockets defense looked awful in their last series giving up 117,109,124,128,103,107 and 100 in the 7 games vs the Clippers, who’s biggest bench threat was Austin Rivers. Defense like that will give you no chance vs this Warriors team that can put up points in a flurry with sharp shooters, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The Warriors went 4-0 vs the Rockets in the regular season and if they swept the Rockets in this series I wouldn’t be surprised. I’ve been saying it since the beginning of the playoffs and I’ll continue to say it, this is the Warriors season.
Series Prediction: Warriors in 5
