The Golden State Warriors kick off a three-game road trip with a matchup against the struggling Houston Rockets.

The Dubs haven’t been playing their best recently, winning just one of their previous six games. Golden State has the perfect opportunity to get back on track against a Houston team that has lost 17 games in a row.

Head coach Steve Kerr has been giving youngsters Jordan Poole and Nico Mannion more minutes in place of Brad Wanamaker and Damion Lee. But he will be missing two regulars.

James Wiseman and Eric Paschall will miss this one due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

Stephen Curry continues to be his dominant self. The two-time NBA MVP has carried the load for the Dubs and needs to get some more consistent scoring behind him if the team wants to climb up the Western Conference standings.

The Rockets are expected to get big man Christian Wood back in the lineup for this game. Wood has missed the last six weeks while recovering from an ankle injury.
