On Tuesday night, the Golden State Warriors will look to avoid a fate similar to the Eastern Conference standings leaders, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Golden State's biggest nemesis in the West, the San Antonio Spurs, were able to defeat LeBron James and Cleveland on Monday. That kept the Spurs within a few games reach of the Warriors, while also knocking the Cavs down from their lead in the East. On Tuesday, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and the Warriors will do battle with NBA MVP candidate James Harden and the Rockets. Here's the latest on how to watch the Warriors vs.

Rockets live streaming online or on TV, as well as the matchup preview.

Golden State vs. Houston matchup

The Warriors come into tonight's game on a hot NBA winning streak, having won their last seven games. On Sunday, they topped the Memphis Grizzles by a final score of 106-94 with Klay Thompson's 31 points leading the way. Thompson shot 12-for-18 from the field including 7-for-11 from three-point range to help extend the win streak to seven.

Houston will hope to end the Warriors' streak, as the Rockets are still one of the top three teams in the West. Led by MVP candidate James Harden who scores 29.4 per game, the Rockets are on a win-streak of their own, having captured their last four victories.

That includes their most recent win over Russell Westbrook and Oklahoma City 137-125 on Sunday.

The two teams are both high-scoring squads, with Golden State averaging 115.9 and Houston 115.8 points per game. On the defensive side, one might say the Warriors are a bit better, allowing opponents just 104.3 points per game, compared to 108.8 for the Rockets' defense.

Tonight's game odds favor the Houston Rockets by just a point. The visiting underdog Warriors are -105 on the moneyline, while Houston is priced a shade higher at -115. Tonight's over/under points total is hovering around 233.5 points for the complete game.
