HOU VS GSW DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Houston Rockets brought things to a parity in the Western conference against Golden State Warriors after they split their two-leg tour with a 95-92 win in the 4th game at Oracle Arena.
Nobody gave them a chance in this game, not because what happened in the 1st and the 3rd game, but considering Warriors headed into this game seeking their 17th straight win in the playoffs. But Rockets have been the toughest nut to crack in the West throughout the regular season and they gave a timely reminder that a team boasting remarkable talents such as James Harden and Chris Paul can’t be written off no matter how big are the odds stacked against them.
The loss was a hard pill to swallow for Steve Kerr and his Warriors. The Dubs started the game with a 12-0 run and another 34-17 in the 3rd quarter. Stephen Curry was also firing on all the cylinders in the 3rd quarter, scoring 17 of his 28 points. But it all turned to ashes as Rockets refused to be pushed over and with an intensity and toughness which was at par with Warriors in this game, visitors managed to clawed their way back into the game and shocked the home fans with an improbable looking win.
Harden (30) and Paul (27) scored the bulk of the points for Rockets, while Kevin Durant (27) and Stephen Curry (28) topped the scoring charts for the defending champions in the game. Draymond Green also had a good game as he had 11 poi9nts, 14 rebounds, and assists but he will remember this game for one play when Harden ripped the Mickey out of him during a play.
Houston head-coach D’Antoni was all praise for his team after the match – “It’s not like, you know, we have a magic formula,” he said. “It’s just we have guys that believe.”
Now the series head to Houston, Texas, and it’s imperative for Mike D’Antoni and his players that they sustain the intensity and the hunger to win the Western Conference and end Warriors’ reign.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Golden State Warriors are hurt, and we shouldn’t have a discussion about this after all Houston Rockets became the first team in the last 18 game to beat them at their own den and in front of their own fans, so no doubt, their egos have got a battering. Now just like a wounded lion is at the most aggressive, expect Warriors to come out with all guns blazing.
