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

We’ve talked plenty about about landing space, Scott Foster, flopping, last-two-minute reports and pretty much everything besides the actual game happening tonight. Austin Rivers is expected to be back in the lineup after missing Game 1 with the flu. And Clint Capela will hopefully be back as well after essentially no-showing on Sunday.

Houston will also need more from both James Harden and Chris Paul. Both of these guys have another chance to define their yet unfulfilled legacy. It’s time to get it done. Going back home tied at 1-1 is much different than heading back trying to avoid an essentially season-ending 3-0 hole.

Expect it to be chippy. Expect it to be rough. And expect Scott Foster to inject himself into the postgame conversation one way or another.

One other thing... I’m getting pretty damn sick of these guys. I was thinking today whether or not the Warriors and their fan base were becoming more hated to me than my old nemesis, the Utah Jazz. And while I may be more annoyed with the Dubs and their bandwagoners more this very moment, they simply haven’t been relevant for a long enough period of time to overtake a multi-decade rivalry. Sorry, Dubs.

Let’s go, Rockets!
