NBA: New Orleans Pelicans - Houston Rockets
- Title : NBA: New Orleans Pelicans - Houston Rockets
New Orleans won their last game. They were back home after a tough road trip that saw them lose five of six, but a visit from Washington was just what the doctor ordered. New Orleans looks to have a nice nucleus with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram but their scoring is essentially empty categories. Pelicans don’t shoot well from the outside and have to face a rejuvenated Houston who has really ramped up their defense of late. Give the Rockets the upper hand in this one as they make it five straight wins.
Houston does not have a great record but half of their wins have come during their current four-game winning streak. They have covered in three of those wins and their new look lineup looks like one that can make the playoffs later.
Rockets with John Wall and Victor Oladipo have only played two games together, but in those games has amazing I want to test it out as a theory against Pelicans on a back to back, in a letdown spot after a huge win vs. the Bucks. Last time we had -2, today we give Houston plus line instead
Pelicans have a quick turnaround here against Rockets that has won four games in a row.Rockets look refreshed after trading James Harden, and they have proven to be a deep team with players including Eric Gordon, DeMarcus Cousins, Jae’Sean Tate and David Nwaba all coming off the bench. Even with a win yesterday, Pelicans are still 3-8 across their last 11 games. Look for the Rockets to stay hot and come away with another win.
