  • Klay Thompson HOU vs GSW Dream11

    HOU vs GSW Dream11: NBA midseason is here and well, what a fun season we have had! The league has combatted well against the COVID-19 Omicron threat and now as we head towards the All-Star window, this season’s All Star Game can be better than the last one(Although for me All Star games are meaningless largely, it is the tag that matters). But before that, we will have a trade deadline window and well, don’t be surprised if some of the big names see a change of scenery.

    Anyway, let us get right into this game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets in a typical Western Conference affair. The Warriors are having a title-contender type of season after last season they were at the fringes of the Playoffs race. Well, the change has come from almost the same core but largely due to the growth of Poole and an improved play off the bench. Can the Warriors win sixth in a row here to mark their ascendancy?

    On the other hand, the Houston Rockets have been going through a turbulent period once again and they haven’t been the same since the departure of James Harden. The team is in full-blown rebuild mode and well, their current record was projected by various critics, fans, and writers beforehand. Will the Rockets trade some of their key issues?

    Host: Houston Rockets

    Visitors: Golden State Warriors
    Match Timing: 1 February, @ 08:30 AM

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Warriors: Surging
    The Golden State Warriors hit a phase earlier this month when they lost around 60-70% of the games and were hitting cold spell. Why did it occur? Well, first Draymond Green went down and then Klay Thompson got back in the lineup which caused Jordan Poole to lose his rhythm. What did coach Steve Kerr do? Make adjustments, give Poole more minutes and the liberty to shoot at a huge clip. And the Warriors have been playing at a high clip and despite missing Green, they have figured out a way to eke out quality offense and defense.

    Steph Curry has struggled to shoot from the field but at this point, you can’t just see Curry as a mere offensive player, he fights hard on defense, can act as the playmaker, and can be an all-around presence. Thompson is shooting well while as stated earlier, Poole is back to his old offensive ways, what a trio of guards! Andrew Wiggins continues to be a two-way threat at the wing and along with Otto Porter Jr.(OUT here) forms a formidable wing pairing. On the other hand, Kevon Looney has scrapped rebounds and played quality help defense to make up for the loss of Green. Gary Payton II, Damion Lee, Jonathan Kuminga, and Juan Toscano-Anderson can round off the lineup.

    Rockets: What route will they take
    The Rockets’ future is uncertain when it comes to Christian Wood and Eric Gordon. Wood has been a big-time scorer and rebounder and he has been leading the team in scoring and rebounding. Gordon has been a veteran presence at the off-guard position. However, I have doubt either of those players will be with the team after the trade deadline. If not both then one of them would be traded in my opinion. Other than these two, Jae’Sean Tate can be traded too as the two-way wing who can help out many contending squads. Will all three of them be traded soon?

    Now let us assume, all of them are traded. The team has Kevin Porter Jr. at the one-guard position, Jalen Green at the two-guard, Kenyon Martin Jr. can slate in as the wing or big Forward. Meanwhile, Josh Christopher can be set in the three-guard lineup of Kevin, Jalen, and Christopher, with Martin at big Forward and Alperen Sengun in the middle. This is a young lineup but I think if the Rockets trade away the rest of the veterans and high-value players, they can land high-quality draft picks and also some other young players who can bring future value. What will the Rockets do?
