The Golden State Warriors managed to escape Game 1 against the Houston Rockets with a victory, but there are some adjustments the team can make to help ensure victory in Game 2.
There are no mincing words, Game 1 was ugly. The Golden State Warriors shot the ball well overall (50.7 percent), but the game lacked any notable flow and rhythm. A lot of that was due to the Rockets’ attempt to muck up the game to slow the pace down, but the Warriors were responsible as well.
Most of the conversation about the game seems to focus on the controversy surrounding the officials, but what the referees call is out of the hands of either team.
The Warriors should focus on what they can control as they head into Game 2. Some of the adjustments they can make are about issues the team has dealt with before, but one slight tweak is a strategy the Warriors don’t use often but could utilize to throw off the Rockets.
