Warriors SBNation Blog: Golden State of Mind

Projected Starting Lineups

Rockets: Chris Paul, James Harden, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker, Clint Capela

Warriors: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson will play for the Warriors, while Austin Rivers is out for Houston with an illness. That puts Iman Shumpert into the lineup today for Mike D’Antoni.

Rivers was great, especially defensively, in the first-round series against the Utah Jazz, so his absence will be felt. Hopefully, Shumpert can bring some defensive intensity and knock down a few open shots. He has experienced pass success against these guys, so let’s hope he finds that again.

The Rockets are going to have to take one in Cali at some point in this series, might as well start today, right?

Go Rockets!
