The NBA is back in action today as the Toronto Raptors will clash with the Houston Rockets in Toronto, Ontario.
The Rockets are heading into this game after a 115-104 road win over Boston in their last contest Sunday afternoon. While on the other side, the Raptors lost in overtime against Detroit with a score of 112-107.
Houston Rockets Form
The Rockets are heading into this game after a fifth straight victory as they beat Boston in a tough game.
Houston is now at the 5th spot in the Western Conference with six games behind the Warriors for the top spot.
They are a good time this season and surely will have a say in the playoff this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rockets score an average of 113.4 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 11th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 41.5 boards per game combined with 20.9 assists per night.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Raptors are heading into this game after an overtime defeat against the Pistons away. But before that, they were playing well as they won their previous two games.
The Raptors entered Monday second in the Eastern Conference, with 2.5 games behind the Bucks. Toronto is a good team this season with a good chance in the playoffs later in the season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Raptors score an average of 114.2 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 6th spot in the league in scoring. They also have an average of 45 boards per game combined with 24.9 dimes a night. On the defensive side of the game, the Raptors concede an average of 108.9 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 8th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Raptors are playing well this season. However, they dropped their form as they were beaten away at Detroit.
On the other side, it seems that the Rockets are gaining momentum at the moment. They have the in-form Harden and that is their main advantage. Therefore, I will go bold on this one and take Houston to win this game.
