Three NBA championships, including two-consecutive, in the last four years have given them a sense if inevitability. In fact, to some Bet on NBA handicappers the Warriors have looked “entitled.” Golden State is facing a hungry Houston team that has dreamed of revenge for the past year. The Rockets believe they should have dethroned the Warriors in last year’s Western Conference Finals. Friday at home they will have their best chance to keep the dream alive.

Warriors vs. Rockets TV Coverage: ESPN
Following a 104-99 home win by the Warriors, Houston trails the series 3-2. Should Golden State win game six they will advance the Western Conference Finals. If Houston wins, game seven will be at Golden State on Sunday. Despite their three wins in the series the Warriors have only one cover.
For all that hype about Stephen Curry the Warriors best player has been Kevin Durant. As an example, Durant is averaging a team best 34.2 points per game. Curry has not been exactly slacking with 23.5 points per contest. Counter to that is James Harden of the Rockets. The NBA scoring champion leads the Rockets with 31.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. Although Harden has nice numbers he has not been quite as good as he was in the regular season at 36.1 points per outing. And that has been one of the differences in the series.
