The NBA brings more action today as the Toronto Raptors will clash with the Houston Rockets in the Houston, Texas.
The Raptors are heading into this game after a 110 – 116 loss at Indiana. And on the other side, the Rockets won against the Knicks with a score of 114-110.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Raptors have been playing well this season. However, they have lost their last game against a Pacers team that is closing on them for a playoff spot. Yet, this Toronto team should not panic as they have been playing some great basketball this season.
Serge Ibaka had a good game against the Pacers as he led the team with 23 points in the game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Raptors score an average of 113.8 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough for the 7th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45 boards per night combined with 24.4 dimes per game.
On the defensive side of the game, Toronto concedes an average of 108.2 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough for the solid 9th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Houston Rockets Form
The Rockets have not been consistent lately. However, they showed some character in their last game against the Knicks as they managed to hold on the lead.
Moreover, James Harden enjoyed a great game as he hit a career high of 61 points in the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rockets score an average of 112.2 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 13th spot in the league in scoring.
Additionally, Houston has 42 boards per game combined with 20.8 assists per night.
James Harden is their main man this season as he leads the team with an average of 36.3 points per game.
The Raptors have been playing well. Also, the defeat against the Pacers was expected. They will have Leonard back in the team again. Therefore, they have a chance in this game.
However, the Rockets are a strong team, especially at home. Moreover, they have the in-form James Harden as he hit 61 points in the win against the Knicks. Therefore, I expect a tight game with the Rockets coming on top.
Take Houston in this one.
