Golden State has also cashed in five of its last six games overall, is 4-0 against the number in its last four games playing on one day of rest, and is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 games when playing an opponent with a winning record.
The Houston Rockets came out ice cold against the Golden State Warriors and stayed that way shooting the ball all night, and despite clawing their way back into the game, they couldn't quite get over the hump in falling to the Dubs 113-106. The Warriors large lead offered a bit of the cushion as the Warriors still managed to lead by eight at half-time, though the momentum had clearly shifted to the home team's favor.
When: Tuesday, March 28, at 8 p.m. It was ferocious defense that allowed the Warriors to prevail, as they held the Rockets to 38.8-percent shooting, including 16.1 percent from 3-point distance. The result that night, a 107-85 win for the Spurs, granted San Antonio any tiebreakers should the teams be knotted at the end of the season. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 39.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free throw line. Whereas, the Steph Curry is averaging 24.8 points and 6.5 assists per game.
Despite letting the Rockets get to the free throw line a lot, the Warriors protected the three-point line well.
Crunch time. Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors will travel to Houston to face the Rockets at the Toyota Center on March 28th at 8pm EST.
The Spurs have the second-best scoring defense in the National Basketball Association, allowing only 98.1 points per game, and that defense was more than up to the task against the slumping Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.
Atlanta played without All-Star forward Paul Millsap and two other key players, while the Suns were missing Devin Booker because of an ankle injury that he aggravated in his 70-point performance.
They outlasted a Houston Rockets team that almost erased a 22 point deficit.
Golden State Warriors: PG - Stephen Curry, SG - Klay Thompson, SF - Matt Barnes, PF - Draymond Green, C - Zaza Pachulia. Curry and Thompson combined for 19 points in the quarter by themselves, as well. The Warriors are now on an eight-game win streak, which is their seventh win streak of at least eight games in Steve Kerr's three-year tenure as head coach. After returning to the court to a chorus of boos late in the third, Green helped the Warriors regain their defensive footing. It'll also help head coach Steve Kerr make history by becoming the fastest National Basketball Association coach to 200 wins.
That being said, Kerr still has a chance to become one of the best coaches in history. Andre Iguodala continues to be a stabilizer for the Warriors off the bench, logging another 30 minute night and sporting the team-high +10.
