It’s time for some NBA playoff action! The Houston Rockets hope to even up the first round series against the Golden State Warriors on April 24th at 3:30pm EST. Watch the game online here and catch every dunk from the Toyota Center in Houston!
Basketball playoffs are in full swing and the Golden State Warriors are looking to repeat as NBA champions. The Houston Rockets however have other plans. The greatest player in the NBA, Stephen Curry, 28, on the best team in the history of the league, may be too injured to save his team from an early exit in the playoffs. Watch the drama unfold on live stream here!
The Warriors are carrying a lot of momentum into this first round, best-of-seven series against the Rockets. The Warriors had 73 wins this season, setting a new record, besting the 96′ Chicago Bulls by one game. This is an incredible feat which may never again be repeated. But will the record mean anything if they can’t even get out of the first round of the playoffs?
This may be the case if their star point guard, Riley Curry‘s dad, Steph can’t play. The MVP tweaked his ankle playing defense during game 1 and has been on the bench since. However, he is expected to play during this game 4. If Steph comes out soft, the Rockets may take advantage of his weakness and grab another victory while still at home. The Warriors have the home court advantage and will return for game 5 and possibly 7.
The Warriors are deep. It is no accident that they are champions and record breakers. They are a team not defined by their star player. Regardless of who starts for the Warriors, the Rockets will have to find away to slow down the Golden State offense and control the boards if they want to see a game 6.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Is there anyway Steph can be stopped in this series? Will the Warriors crush the Rockets during an epic game 4 or can the Houston team bounce back into this series with another win? Let us know who you got in this game!
