The Houston Rockets are battling for respect in the Western Conference. With a 25-22 record and seventh-place standing in the conference, Houston isn’t exactly a team you look at and think of as elite. However, with immense talent toward the top of the roster and a three-game win streak, the Rockets could start to make some noise.
James Harden is having a typical year in which the perennial All-Star has been accustomed to, averaging 27.7 points, 7.0 assists and 6.3 rebounds per game. Dwight Howard has missed some time and has been the center of some ‘unhappy in Houston’ controversy, but he’s performed well, but not dominant, overall. He’s averaging 14.4 points and 12.1 rebounds.
San Antonio is coming off its worst loss in what seems like years. The Spurs were taken to school by the also red-hot Golden State Warriors on the road, losing 120-90. This could be a solid bounce-back game for the league’s second-best team as San Antonio might be getting Tim Duncan back.
Kawhi Leonard had a forgettable game defensively against the Warriors, allowing Steph Curry to break his ankles for the country to see. However, he’s had a solid season otherwise, averaging 20 points, 6.8 rebounds and nearly two steals per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is having a good year as well, averaging 15.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest.
