Warriors vs. Rockets gamethread: Defending the belt

The Warriors face the Rockets tonight at 5 p.m.

It's sort of weird that tonight's Golden State Warriors game against the undefeated Houston Rockets feels less significant after the demolition of the L.A. Clippers on Wednesday night.

But tonight's game, even without the hoopla of national television or the emotion of a rivalry, is probably even more of a test given that it's on the road against a fellow undefeated team that has some individuals who will make for some intriguing 1 on 1 matchups. And, of course, the NBA Championship Belt is on the line as well.

Still sort of surreal that this franchise has risen to the top of the league so quickly after years at the bottom, but we can think about all that later - for now, we have to just enjoy this ride.
