The Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors game is the NBA 2017-18 regular-season opener that will be a national sensation. Golden State Warriors will be starting their journey to defend the title of the NBA champions. The Houston Rockets are one of the stronger and better teams. They are improved and different. Also, the Rockets fall in the category that we expect is full of teams worth a lot of potential thanks to proper restructuring.
Last season’s meeting between the two teams ended with a hard-fought victory for the Houston Rockets. Can they replicate the effect?
Chris Paul (formerly Los Angeles Clippers) is in the team now, which improves things a lot if he sits well with the expectations. Further, James Harden and Curry Thompson (Splash Brothers, actually) also add their own firepower on top.
The Golden State Warriors are pretty much the same. The core of the team remains to be the team that was such a huge force last season. Their performance can be expected to be similar. But will it be powerful enough this season? Well, that remains to be seen. And the game against the Houston Rockets will be the first of the many coming glimpses into the fact how good the Warriors still are.
Any team improves with time if they are open to suggestions and changes that make the play better for the team. It will soon be seen how well the Warriors have improved. If they have done it right, the Warriors will be even better.
With luck (or sheer skill), they will be able to defend the title and become the second team to have back to back wins at the NBA regular season (the first one is Miami Heat).
The team is looking forward to an improved offense paving the way for victory. Rockets wil be a hard but necessary challenge.
