Houston Rockets 38-20 are 4th in the NBA Western Conference. They won their last 5 matches in the league. That winning streak started with a victory against Boston Celtics at home 116-105. Then the team of Mike D’Antoni won two matches away from home against Golden State Warriors 135-105 and Utah Jazz 120-110.
The last two games that Rockets played were in Houston and they won against New York Knicks 123-112 and Memphis Grizzlies 140-112. Russell Westbrook was the most important player for the victory against Grizzlies as he scored 33 points, gave 8 assists and grabs 9 rebounds. He also had 4 steals in that match in which James Harden added 30 points.
Boston Celtics 41-17 are 3rd in the NBA Eastern Conference. In their last 5 games in the league Celtics got 4 victories. The first win was at home against Los Angeles Clippers 141-133 after double OT. Jayson Tatum was the best player that night as he scored 39 points and also grabs 9 rebounds.
Then Celtics played 4 matches away from home in which they beat Minnesota Timberwolves 127-117, Portland Trail Blazers 118-106 and in their last match Utah Jazz 114-103. The only loss in that period for the team of Brad Stevens was against Los Angeles Lakers 112-114. Jayson Tatum scored 41 points against Lakers but his team lost with only 2 points.
Rockets are 17-12 away from home as Celtics won 23 matches at home and lost only 5 times. In their only match, this season Houston won at home but I think that it’s time for revenge and Celtics to win at Boston and end Rockets winning streak. Jayson Tatum is the player to watch and I have no doubt that his teammates will help him to stop Westbrook and Harden at TD Garden. Free NBA picks: Boston Celtics Spread
