NBA (Play offs)
Match start: 01:00 (GMT+1)
Golden State Warriors
Having won surely the first match of a series, GSW have lost in the second (105:127). But the team of Kerr still has the advantage of own floor. These players were not initially considered to be the unambiguous favorite of a battle for getting into the playoffs final.
In a starting match we have focused our attention that the number of Steve Karr’s heaves are getting smaller as he prefers take I. In the second match these changes in the style have played a dirty trick with him. Only 1 heave out of 8 was exact.
Also the bad start of the match which has counted 5 losses only for the first quarter became the reason of defeat of GSW. As a result Warriors have finished the match with 15 turn over but only one Kevin Durant for five times let the rivals make fast breaks.
On contrast with bad defense in the first match, Michael D’Antoni ‘s team has played next battle qualitatively and have reliably blocked the ways for the attacks of the rival.
Klay Thompson has scored only 8 points in nearly 37 minutes of a game and it was the merit of Houston’s defense. The team in general has made 8 steals and James Harden has gathered 10 defensive rebounds.
Most often the players of Rockets let Harden’s to throw (24 attempts). Gordon and Paul have lagged behind the leader (15 and 14 attempts). All other basketball players didn’t throw practically if to compare to the previous figures.
P. J. Tucker has got from behind the arc 5 times out of 6 and has actually demonstrated Karr a master class in this component.
Golden State to win 1.32
Houston to win 3.41
Assuming how the events in the third match will develop, it is possible to note that bookmakers have significantly raised the level of total. As I see it, it is possible to bet using combo option. As there are no doubts in more serious relation to the game of the team from Oakland, we believe that they will win this meeting. But also Rockets will be defending even the minimum advantage in the score (if there will be any) so the general productivity of the meeting will be below the previous parts of this fascinating series.
