Date: on the 01st of April, 2019 (Wednesday)
Match start: 03:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: NBA. Play-off. ¼ final.
Early in the morning on Oracle Arena in Oakland the second match of the semifinal series of West Conference will be played. Last Sunday Golden State and Houston having shown the high-class basketball, demonstrated to all that this match will become a real pearl of this stage.
Warriors had to contain the leader of the Rockets’ attack James Harden – and they would have gained easy win at the start of the series. They didn’t manage to accomplish this – the bearded man has thrown on 35 points to Golden State but also the Warriors have got their hero. Kevin Durant has blocked access from behind the arc and that is why Houston didn’t allow one of the leaders of Golden State to shower the rim from far as it happened during the last meeting with Clippers. Still it gained 35 points.
Of all left players in both teams only the shooting guard of the Rockets Eric Gordon has showed nice game having gained 27 points. Neither Chris Paul nor Steph Curry, Thompson, Iguodala were able to gain many points that is why the score 104:100 in favor of the Warriors is obvious.
We can judge that in the first match the rivals have just paid heed to each other and on the Wednesday morning they will show open game. At the least you should wait for an activity from Houston as the team won’t be pleased to return home with the score 0:2 even if Golden State is the rival. Golden State is not interested in establishment of the power balance prior to the return legs. If Paul and Curry will be able to support Durant and Harden, the forthcoming match will become much more scoring.
Our tip: total over (215.5) – odds 1.56
