Tonight the Houston Rockets face the Golden State Warriors in a much anticipated matchup on TNT.

James Harden is on a much-ballyhooed tear of late, winning Western Conference Player of the Month for December, in a well deserved accolade. Few players have done more to push their team towards wins than Harden on one of the hottest streaks of all time. Appreciate what you’re seeing, as it is rare and special.

Golden State has been playing well of late. Their team is healthy, and Klay Thompson recently publicly thanked his right hand for services rendered.

The Rockets are not so healthy. Chris Paul remains out, along with Eric Gordon, so much of the Rockets scoring punch is on the bench. James Ennis is projected to return this evening, and hopefully stay healthy and establish himself as an important piece of the Rockets rotation.

The Rockets have already outperformed what many expected from them with their difficult run of opponents coupled with injuries to key players. It might end tonight, but as long as the team competes and stays healthy, there’s not really much to take away on the negative side.
