Houston Rockets (32-43) @ Golden State Warriors (30-44)
Friday, April 7, 9:30 p.m.
The Arena in Oakland


Alston / Head / Bogans / Howard / Yao


Fisher / Richardson / Dunleavy / Murphy / Foyle Preview
The Rockets continue their six-game road trip Friday in Oakland when they take on the Golden State Warriors. Houston (32-43) will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak Friday, while Golden State (30-44) will be looking to put the brakes on a five-game skid.

Friday will be the Rockets’ fourth game of a six-game road trip. Houston has lost the first three games of their latest west coast swing, most recently falling to the Portland Trail Blazers 76-75 Wednesday night.

Golden State was also last in action on Wednesday as the Warriors were handed a 114-109 loss at the hands of the Hornets in Oklahoma City.

Friday will mark the fourth and final meeting between these two teams this season. Houston has taken two of the first three match-ups on the year, most recently defeating the Warriors 91-88 Feb. 24, at Toyota Center.

Yao Ming and Juwan Howard each scored 22 points in that game, while Jason Richardson exploded for a game-high 39 points in the loss for Golden State.

Both teams will be without key players Friday, each of whom missed the last meeting between these two teams. Tracy McGrady remains sidelined with a back injury for the Rockets, and Golden State’s Baron Davis should be out with a sprained right ankle.

The Warriors have allowed their opponents to score 100 points in three straight games, which might be exactly what the doctor ordered for a Houston team that managed to scored only 75 points Wednesday night against the Blazers.
