The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets play a Sunday preseason game at the State Farm Arena.
The Golden State Warriors are coming off their first loss of the preseason on Friday to the Miami Heat. The Warriors have looked extremely sharp under new head coach Steve Kerr, topping 100 points in each game and making a combined 17 threes in their last two games. David Lee is coming off a monster performance where he shot a perfect 11 of 11 from the field for 24 points and grabbed six rebounds. Klay Thompson seems to be in regular season form after drilling 11 threes in his last three games. While Stephen Curry can get his shot anytime, he’s racked up 17 assists in his last three games and seems to be comfortable within the new offense. The Golden State Warriors have been one of the more impressive teams so far in the preseason.

The Houston Rockets haven’t played since Tuesday, which was their first loss of the preseason as they enter this matchup with a 3-1 record. Dwight Howard continues to miss playing time with a bruised knee but expects to be ready for the regular season. James Harden has missed the last couple of games with a bruised hip but practiced earlier this week and could play in this matchup. One player who has stepped up for Houston is Terrence Jones, who has scored in the double digits in two of his last three games and snagged 14 rebounds during those games as well. Troy Daniels has a combined 24 points in his last two games and could be in for a big second season. Trevor Ariza is also shooting a high percentage in the limited time he’s played in the first few games.
Two teams that can scored triple digits at a drop of a hat. . Give me the team that's given the points considering this contest is a complete toss up.
