Curry, Thompson help Warriors over Rockets

Curry, Thompson help Warriors over Rockets

With Durant sidelined by a calf strain Thursday, the old guard arose for the Warriors (31-8). The Rockets and Warriors arrive at baskets often in different ways-Houston running constant pick-and-rolls and guards taking advantage of switches, Golden State tirelessly moving off-the-ball until the defense wilts-but both arrive at buckets nonetheless. Warriors forward David West (12 points) also left late in the game with a sprained left ankle that will be reevaluated on Friday.

The Rockets average 43.1 three pointers per game, which ranks first in the league. But a Houston win Thursday would have been a nice psychological edge for Paul, whose Clippers teams were often humiliated by the Warriors, who have always seemed particularly hell-bent on beating Paul's teams. If the officials call it tight, that should benefit the Warriors, as Paul is a notoriously grabby defender. "Omri Casspi (mid back strain) is questionable".

The Warriors will be out to avenge their 122-121 loss at home to Houston during the season opener. Paul had 28 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds.

DEATH LINEUP III: The Warriors in recent years have turned to small lineups to crush opponents. They just ran out of gas down the stretch.

"(Durant's absence) doesn't affect anything. The key is seeing how well Bell fares. If he is hot (like he was against the Warriors), he will play upwards of 30 minutes. The Warriors are No. 1 in scoring (115.4 ppg), the Rockets (115.3) are No. 2.

Ultimately, when the team is fully healthy, Green will often find himself on the bench for games, as he is most likely a ninth or 10th man in the rotation when Houston is fully healthy. This has the feel of a shootout, making timely stops crucial. The Rockets' turnover percentage was their largest advantage over the Warriors. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.
