★★★

The Golden State Warriors look to build on their 41 game regular season home winning streak against the withering Houston Rockets Tuesday night at Oracle Arena. With a record of 46-4 Golden State is tied with the 1966-67 Philadelphia Warriors for the best 50 game start in the history of the Association.

The Warriors are 11-1 in their last 12 meetings with the Rockets, including a 114-110 Steph Curry-less victory in Houston back on December 31st. Golden State are winners of nine straight overall and have failed to cover the spread only twice during their current streak. However the Dubs are just 3-4 ATS this season when they are favored by at least 14 points.

While both teams enter Thursday night with top five offenses in the NBA, the over/under line is exceptionally high at 229.5 total points. Golden State's offense is capable of torching Houston for at least 120 points, but the real question is will the Rockets be able to manufacture at least 100 points against a stout Golden State defense. The Warriors (29-21 O/U) and Rockets (30-23 O/U) rank as the two best over bets in the NBA according to OddsShark.com.

Here are some highlights from the last time the Warriors and Rockets played each other:
