The Rockets are (21-15) on the road Thursday to battle the Warriors (25-13) at 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT. 

Houston and Golden State will face each other for the second time this season. The Rockets beat the Warriors by a final score of 107-86 on Nov. 15. 

MVP candidate James Harden and the Rockets ended 2018 on a high note, winning their last five games of the year. Houston will look to extend its streak with a win over Golden State to kick off 2019.

The Warriors won big over the struggling Suns on New Year's Eve, putting a nice bow on a 10-5 month. The road will be tougher in January, as eight of Golden State's 13 games will be outside of the friendly confines of Oracle Arena.

The Rockets will be without Chris Paul, who is sidelined due to a hamstring injury with no real timetable for a return. Golden State's DeMarcus Cousins is still out with an Achilles injury, but he did participate in a scrimmage on Friday.
