Betting odds were thrown out the window as the Golden State Warriors saw their dominant run come to a halt, while the Houston Rockets were just mind-boggling with the way they’ve welcomed Chris Paul back on the floor.
If this doesn’t get you hooked on NBA basketball, I don’t know what will!
Golden State Warriors 88-92 Boston Celtics
The first game of the day was a must-watch for everyone who considers himself a hardcore NBA fan.
This game was a battle between the top dogs of the East and West, and the players did not disappoint in terms of quality play. Kevin Durant and the Warriors led for the majority of the game, but Al Horford and Kyrie Irving led an inspired fight-back in the fourth. Boston’s league-leading defence was what killed the game off in their favour, as Stephen Curry just struggled with his shot all game long.
While it is important to say that a game in November doesn’t mean anything come the playoffs, just imagine how deadly Boston would be if Gordon Hayward wasn’t injured for the C’s.
Houston Rockets 142-116 Phoenix Suns
Man, the Rockets are something else.
They celebrated Chris Paul’s return to the starting five by throwing defence to the trash and outscoring the poor Phoenix Suns. The Rockets outscored the entire Warriors team by half-time, notching 90 points. Greg Monroe, Devin Booker and Josh Jackson had put in some great shots, but they were just helpless against James Harden’s 48-point performance.
If this is a sign of things to come, then Houston will be a must-watch for NBA fans who love high-scoring epics.
