NBA Post Season
Western Conference Finals, Game – 2, Warriors lead the series 1-0
HOU VS GSW DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Western Conference leaders Houston Rockets played host to Golden State Warriors in one of the most anticipated games of the season, in Game- 1 of the final of the NBA playoffs season at TD Garden.
It was quite an unfamiliar situation for the defending champions as this was the first time since 2014 that they started a playoff series on the road. It certainly gives the higher ranked team a significant advantage as they play the first two games at home, and you expect the hosts to at least play better in home games.
So this was the case here too. Rockets started the game better, but only better, as they won the first quarter 30-29. But it was the only quarter they won as the Dubs hit back immediately and won the next three quarters to win the game 119-106 and wiped away Houston’s home advantage.
The home team was in the game at the start of the penultimate quarter. In fact, Warriors lead was just four points when Eric Gordon opened the final period with a thumping 3-pointer. But that was it, and they never came close to the defending champions as a run of 13-4 where Klay Thompson scored the first eight stretched their lead to 13 points with just 8 minutes left in the game.
The home team had its own moment when they went on a 9-3 run to cut the lead to 103-96, but Thompson again stretched his muscles to score a 3 pointer to give his team a 10 point advantage.
Kevin Durant is once again proving to be the star for GSW as his postseason form continues to shine. The last year’s finals MVP scored an incredible 37 points to lead his team to a vital victory. While James Harden tried his best to win the game for his team as he racked up a match-high 41 points but couldn’t stop his teams from falling into the jaws of defeats.

HOU VS GSW DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is the series everybody has been waiting for and after the first game, it’s fair to say that it really is going to live up to its billing. Warriors won the first game but Rockets were always in the match and only a 4th quarter meltdown from the hosts saw the defending champions home.
We are backing Houston Rockets to level the series in this game.
