IMAGE SOURCE Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets will face each other at Houston Toyota Center in the NBA regular season game 2018-2019 Golden State's Kevin Durant (Forward, 208cm, 108.9kg) will miss the away game against Houston Rockets. It was reported that Golden State's Steve Kerr had not personally trained Durant. Durant is currently on the list of injured players due to a right ankle injury. This time Durant was not able to enter the game, so the signboards representing the team in the face-to-face match between the two teams became vacant. Stephen Curry (Golden State), Chris Paul (Houston), and James Harden (Houston) were each injured. Coincidentally, Durant does not run this time. Golden State and Houston were in the final round of the Western Conference finals until the seventh game. Houston's top seed earned a home court advantage when Golden State was pinched by the rise of 'Fantastic4'. In the western final, Andre Iguodala (Golden State) was unable to step on the court in the early stages of the series. Both teams are not the same season as last season, but they are still considered to be the most likely candidates. The Golden State had a tremendous momentum before the second half, and Houston has rallied nine consecutive wins in the second half. If the two teams play in the playoffs, it is anticipated that the match will be played again. The game to be played on the day can be seen as a skirmish before the playoffs.
