What: Houston Rockets (76-21) at Golden State Warriors (68-29)
When: Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 9:00 PM ET
Where: Oracle Arena
The Line: Golden State Warriors -12 -110 | -1000 | U 212½ -110
Houston picked up a hard-fought 98-94 home win in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday night as Eric Gordon scored a team-high 24 points off the bench and Chris Paul came up big down the stretch while contributing 20 points on 4 of 9 shooting from three-point distance to help Houston finally take a lead in the back and forth series.
While likely MVP winner James Harden was limited to just 19 points on a dismal 5 for 21 effort, the Rockets managed to get the big win by making several crucial plays in the closing moments. Still, there’s a ton of bad news for Houston with the news on Friday that Paul would sit out Game 6 with a hamstring strain.
“His spirits aren’t great,” Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni said. “He wanted to be out there, and for sure he’s worried … we’ll see tomorrow how it goes.”
Golden State got a game-high 29 points from Kevin Durant, 23 points from Klay Thompson and 22 points from Steph Curry, but outside of Draymond Green’s additional 12 points, no Warriors player added more than four points in the humbling loss while only three other players even scored a basket. The Dubs played their second straight game without veteran stalwart Andre Iguodala who sat out with an injury.
“We haven’t been in this position before … so it’s a chapter we need to figure out and finish the story,” Stephen Curry said.
I know the Houston Rockets are going to be without Chris Paul in Game 6, but Andre Iguodala may not play for the third straight games and either way, I don’t see the Dubs just cruising to victory in this contest despite the urgency surrounding it. No, right about now, I think the warriors are really worried as they should be, even though I’ve got them winning Game 6 to push this series to a Game 7.
The Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team above .600 and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on one days rest. Conversely, the Warriors are just 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games, 4-17 ATS in their last 21 games playing on one day’s rest and 10-24 ATS in their last 34 games against a team with a winning record. Golden State wins, but not by the 11 points it will take for them to cover the chalk!
Pick: Houston +12 -110
