Thunder next stop on Warriors road swing
The Golden State Warriors will attempt to put Tuesday night's rout behind them when they move on to play the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Houston Rockets rained down 3-pointers all night ultimately hitting 23-of-40 from downtown in the 140-109 dismantling of the Warriors. Jeremy Lin led the way for the hosts at the Toyota Center connecting on 10-of-16 from the field including 5-of-8 from beyond the arc for a game high 28 points.
Not the best start for Golden State as they kicked off their four-game road trip that will also take them to Memphis and Dallas. First up however is the visit to the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. Last time the Warriors came into town they lost 119-109 as the Thunder's Kevin Durant hit a triple-double adding 13 rebounds and 10 assists to his customary double figures in scoring.
The Warriors are priced at 10/11 in the point spread (+10.5), with the Thunder (-10.5) available at 10/11.
Tuesday the Los Angeles Lakers continued their seven-game road swing with a victory over the Nets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Once more Dwight Howard was out through injury and not coincidentally the Lakers won their third straight. The latest reports out of Los Angeles indicate that Howard will not be moved before the trade deadline and that the Lakers are looking to sign the former Orlando Magic star to a long-term deal. However the reality is that they are a better team when Howard isn't playing. Pau Gasol was injured in the LA victory and appears to be definitely out when the Lakers play the Celtics in Boston on Thursday.
