NBA Betting: HOUSTON ROCKETS at GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS – Game 2 (5/21)

PRO BASKETBALL — May 21

Game 2- West Finals
HOUSTON at GOLDEN STATE

(GetThatBet Line: Warriors -10, Total 219) — Of course, the big question here is Dwight Howard, the Houston center who had to leave Game 1 with a sprained knee. He is the guy who protects the hoop and also prevents Golden State from going hog wild when it comes to offensive rebounding. But even if he plays, the Warriors have a pretty good answer for him, with the small lineup that had so much success in the opener, and involves using four players who are 6-foot 7. That opens up the floor with a lot of spacing and will draw somebody like Howard outward. We really don’t know how Houston can come up with an answer for Stephon Curry, who beat their point guards for 34 points on Tuesday. Houston hung in very gamely two nights ago, and actually got to within two points near the end. But they just don’t have any matchup advantages, or so it seems. Can James Harden play out of his head once again? Remember that Houston got swept four straight by the Warriors in the regular season, and by an average of 15 points.
