The Houston Rockets return home tonight to play the Portland Trail Blazers after starting the season 2-0. NBA odds are available at Bovada sportsbook.
James Harden has got his Rockets career off to an amazing start after two sensational games to start the season. He followed up a 37 point game in the opener with 45 points last night on just 19 shot attempts. He led the Rockets to a 109 – 102 victory over the Hawks and he is paying dividends for the Rockets already.
The Trailblazers come into tonight’s game with a record of 1-1 after beating the Lakers on opening night, but losing last night to Oklahoma City 106 – 92. Of note for the Blazers is the good play of rookie point guard Damian Lillard who has had a very strong start in his NBA rookie campaign. Lillard joined Isaiah Thomas and Oscar Robertson is the only NBA players to score at least 20 points and have at least 10 assists in the first two NBA games.
The Rockets are going to be one of those teams we feel that will be very tough to pick for or against all season. We are impressed with Harden has done the first two games, but he has to slow down sometime right? We will take Portland has point spread underdogs on the road tonight and hope they can keep it close at online sportsbook usa.
