In a game from National Basketball Association, we will see Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets.
Portland Trail Blazers won 2 games in a row and they are now looking forward to their visit to Houston where they will face the inconsistent Rockets. Damian Lillard finished with 28 points against the Timberwolves. The Trail Blazers are one of the high scoring teams in the league, averaging 112 points per game and they are also 2nd in rebounding, averaging 49.5 per game. They are solid defensively and they are making enough stops, even though they do not have the best defense.
Houston lost 3 games in a row and the team is still unable to get back on track. The Rockets were knocked off by Dallas in the weekend in a game where they were the favorites. They were 65-17 last year and now they already have 14 losses in early December. Things aren’t looking good at all for Houston and a big reason for their struggles is their shaky offense which is good for 21st in the league.
At the moment, no one can trust the Rockets. Yes, they can dismantle the Trail Blazers if they are playing like we know they can but this would be an exception and not a coincidence. Portland is playing an efficient basketball this year and I doubt that they will lose by much.
