The Houston Rockets are being forecasted as a team that could actually outscore the Golden State Warriors, and it seems as though the Rockets’ decision to use James Harden as a point guard is actually working out well. The Rockets are 2-1, but now face the defending NBA champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving vs. Harden, Eric Gordon vs. JR Smith, Ryan Anderson vs. Kevin Love, the matchups are going to be fun to watch.

The catch is that unless the Rockets can figure out their defense, we’re expecting the Cavaliers to come out on top.

Mike D’Antoni, the new head coach of the Houston Rockets, isn’t exactly known for his fondness of the defensive arts. His style of coaching is really more of the whole “I bet we can score more points than you can.” That’s bad news for teams trying to win championships, but good news for people trying to watch exciting basketball.

The NBA recognizes that this game is going to be one that’s going to be a marquee matchup, so they’ve actually moved the game up an hour so that it won’t interfere with the World Series Game 6.
