GSW vs HOU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Golden State Warriors will be looking for their first win over Houston Rockets this season when they host James Harden and CO. in a regular season match at Oracle Arena, in Oakland, California, United States, on Sunday morning (IST).
The reigning NBA champions are leading the Western Conference and moved to 42-16 for the season after narrowingly beating Sacramento Kings 125-123 at Oracle Arena in their first game after the All-Star break.
The Warriors are averaging 118.9 points per game this season, 1st in NBA and allowing 111.9 points per game, 19th across both the conferences. The Dubs are 23-7 in home games this season, which is the fourth best home record in the 2018-19 season.
The streak continues but Rockets fell to Lakers:
James Harden extended his +30 points streak to 32 games after dropping 32 points in 111-106 loss to Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center.
The scoreline doesn’t reveal the full story about the match and the five-point win for the Showtime was certainly out of the blues if we consider where the game was in the 3rd quarter.
Rockets enjoyed a 19 points lead at some point in the 3rd quarter, and the game looked a formality for the visitors. But Lakers erupted, led by an aggressive Brandon Ingram and the brilliance of LeBron James. The King had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists, while Ingram dropped 27 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.
The visitors were suffered from too many technical fouls, with both James Harden and Chris Paul missing the game time on the court. The next for Houston is a trip down to Oakland as they face the mighty Warriors at their own backyard.
Regular Season Record-
Golden State Warriors: W-42, L-16
Houston Rockets: W-33, L-25
Players to watch out for:
Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry –Perhaps the best shooter of the ball from beyond the arc, Stephen Curry is once in a generation kind of player. He is a good dribbler, has an incredible eye for a pass, and comes big in big games. The 30-year-old is scoring points at 28.8 per game.
Kevin Durant – The former Oklahoma City Thunder superstar has won the last two NBA finals MVP, which shows he is a big-game player. The 30-year-old is averaging 27.6 points per game this season.
James Harden – Scored 30 points against Los Angeles Lakers and extended his personal +30 points streak to an incredible 32 games. The reigning NBA MVP is racking up 36.5 points per game this season, the best in NBA this season.
Clint Capela – Made a return from injury against Los Angeles Lakers to boost Rockets’ roster. The 24-year-old has been phenomenal for the team this season and is leading the rebounds charts for Rockets this season. He is Houston’s 2nd best player with 17.5 points per game.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
We expect the Dubs to come out all guns blazing and remind Rockets who rule the Western Conference. But Warriors have been inconsistent this season, with teams drawing them close.
Despite the high scoring game between these two teams last time around, we expect the fluidity to come down a little bit and back Warriors to win this game.
