What to Know

This Saturday, the Houston Rockets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.3 points per game. They will take on the Golden State Warriors at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at home. Houston should still be feeling good after a win, while Golden State will be looking to get back in the win column.

The Rockets were able to grind out a solid victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, winning 143-136. Shooting guard Kevin Porter was a one-man wrecking crew for Houston, shooting 9-for-15 from downtown and finishing with a double-double on 50 points and 11 assists in addition to five rebounds.

Meanwhile, the matchup between the Dubs and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday was not particularly close, with Golden State falling 126-114. A silver lining for Golden State was the play of point guard Stephen Curry, who had 37 points and eight assists along with six boards.

Houston is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, as they've failed to beat the spread in 24 of their 32 home games.

The Rockets ended up a good deal behind the Warriors when they played in the teams' previous meeting last month, losing 125-109. Maybe Houston will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
