Houston is in outstanding form right now as the club has won two straight and nine of their past ten games. They are an efficient team. They rank third in both scoring and field goal offense. They connect on 47.5% from the field and average 106.5 points per game. Houston on defense has defended well. They limit opponents to just 43.7% shooting ranking fifth best in the NBA. The Rockets enter play in good form and they team comes off a 129-103 victory on the road on Tuesday night to the Sacramento Kings. Prior to that victory the team went into Phoenix and got the win straight up in a hostile arena. The good thing about the Rockets blowout is the team good care of business early as they go up 42-17 after one period and were up 104-77 after three periods. This allowed Houston to rest many of their players as only one player played 30 minutes or more and that was James Harden who logged in 31 minutes in the rout of the Kings. The Rockets will be fresh in this spot despite the back to back spot.
