In the second game they lost by two points more than the previous game 109-115. The best of the first two games was to prove that the Warriors defense continues to suffer to win in the playoffs. Especially with games at home. The reserves were playing well the first games of the series. The Rockets know how to use the power of the bench.

Golden State Warriors: We are not afraid to win on the road.
The Warriors are still looking for another championship, but this year the defense is number 16 of the entire league. In short, one of the worst defenses. The first two games of the series were victories, but they were not solid against the Rockets. The Warriors allowed 100 points in each game at home. But the only good thing is that in the playoffs since the first round the Warriors have not lost games on the road.
On the road the numbers are not bad, but the opponent of the first round was weak. Three victories against the Clippers. The average points on the road is 124.7 per game. 46.67 FG points, 83.9% free throw shots, 12.33 three pointers, 31.33 assists.

This is the first time they play as underdogs in the playoffs this season. Since May 2018 the Warriors do not lose a game on the road.
