Rockets ML +100 over Warriors (5u)
For the first time ever, Steve Kerr has been playing the “Death Lineup” or the Hampton’s Five early on in series this year which is leading to every Warriors starter is playing an additional 10+ minutes per game compared to the regular season. These extra minutes are starting to add up and take their toll. Did the Warriors quit the other night with 20 seconds left on the clock or are the starters exhausted? The Warriors bench is awful so it’s not like they have much of a choice, the starters are going to need to play extended minutes the rest of the playoffs. The longer this series goes the more it helps the Rockets. We saw Curry miss a layup and a dunk late in the game. Curry is also dealing with a finger injury, but it seems like fatigue has crept in. The Warriors starters could be up any given amount and will lose that lead once the bench steps in. The Warriors made 42.4 percent of their threes and outscored Houston from the foul line in Game 3, but still lost. They are just getting nothing from their bench. It will take a monumental effort from the Warriors to win the title this year with the bench they have. This series has seven games written all over it. Houston is a great home team and will tie this series tonight in their own building. Take Houston.
