Entering the series the one discernible area the Rockets held an edge over the Warriors was their bench production, however the Warriors have obliterated that edge in this category. Golden State has moved up 7 spots in their efficiency while the Rockets have plummeted.

Corey Brewer has been disappointing throughout the series but he did offer some effort in Game 3 while most of his teammates appeared to be giving up. For the Rockets to win one game which needs to be their immediate goal they’ll need a much better effort off the bench. The other area Brewer really needs to provide assistance is defensively. With the Warriors having dominated the Rockets in Game 3 it’s important the bench bring a solid, focused effort tonight to gain back their previously predicted advantage.
