Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors Predictions 5/8/2019

Golden State fans will see more of their NBA hometown heroes on Wednesday evening for Game 5 at the Oracle Arena. Golden State had been in dire situations like this as NBA Champions of three in the past 4 NBA Finals, and they are not in panic mode with the Rockets leveling the series at 2-2 in the best of seven matches. The Warriors shot 8 of 33 from beyond the arc which is a factor in losing Game 4. PG Stephen Curry was in a scoring slump in the past couple of games but made up in Game 4 with 30 points following SF Kevin Durant with 34 and 7 rebounds off the glass. Durant and Curry had open looks in the final seconds of regulation but missed the opportunities to tie the game for an over time.

Golden State has home court advantage in Game 5 with 117.7 ppg at 49.1% from the field while restraining playoff rivals to score at 113.5 ppg. The Warriors grabbed 46.2 rebounds, slid 29.4 assists, blocked 6.4 shots and made 7.6 steals per meeting with NBA rivals. PG Stephen Curry wipes the tally boards in scoring with 27.3 ppg, 47.2% in FG shooting, and 91.6% from the free throw stripe. The team is 8-2 SU in its last 10 matches and at the Oracle Arena and 15-5 SU in its last 20 games against the Rockets at home. Golden State is the three time defending champion and seeks its fourth in this League.

Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors. The NBA Playoff Pick for this match is the Houston Rockets +5.5. GSW Center DeMarcus Cousins is not going to play in this season with a quad injury while SF Shaun Livingston is not sure to be in this contest with a hip problem. I would go for the Rockets to win this contest with momentum and energy at their side at a predicted score of 115-111.
