Houston Rockets vs GS Warriors
Western Conference Finals, Game 5
Houston Rockets - Golden State Warriors
Game 4 in Oracle Arena has reestablished the balance in the series score and has brought the home court advantage to the Houston Rockets.
Andre Iguodala's absence has been a huge difference maker two days ago. Steve Kerr could not start the usual Hampton Five lineup and James Harden got rid of his main defender. This change came
with many matchup shifts and the whole dynamic of the game has seriously changed.
Anyway, the game has been very interesting as a scoreline evolution, each team winning by big margin two quarters respectively and the game ended by one shot difference.
Iguodala is a game time decision for game 5.
Golden State are expected to prove their championship pedigree while the Rockets will try to take the first lead in this series.
I fully expect another defense dictated matchup, with lots of contested shots and lots of rebounding opportunities.
Once again (I use to change angles from game to game in playoffs yet now I won't) I'm betting on Stephen Curry to keep his trend of recording at least 6 rebounds in 7 out of his 8 playoff games this year.
Let's go green!
