ROCKETS vs. WARRIORS
Classic duel goes down tonight as Warriors seek revenge on Rockets
This is what it's all about. The Golden State Warriors come to town tonight for the only visit they will make to Houston this season (in the regular season, that is). At 36-6, the Warriors sit atop the NBA at the moment, but one of those six losses came at the hands of the Rockets at their place when James Harden and the Rockets pulled it out in double overtime in Oakland, a win that kicked off a terrific December by the Rockets. The good news for the Rockets is they did not shoot very well from three-point range in that game (14-44), but neither did the Warriors (12-44). Look for that to change tonight. For the Rockets to have a shot, they'll need to get Ryan Anderson (flu) back healthy.
