Houston Rockets 11-4 are 3rd in the NBA Western Conference. Rockets were in 8 a series of 8 wins but that ended in their last match against Denver Nuggets. They were beaten 95-105 in Denver, Colorado and James Harden scored only 27 points in that game which is low to his standard as in the latest matches The Beard scored around 40 points. The highest-scoring player for Nuggets was Nikola Jokić who also finished with 27 points but the difference in that clash was that for Denver 8 players finished with at least 8 scored points. After that loss, the upcoming match against Clippers will be another big test for Rockets and their chances to be considered as favorite this season to win the championship.
Los Angeles Clippers 10-5 are 4th in the NBA Western Conference. Clippers are in series of 3 wins in a row and in their latest match against Boston Celtics we saw for the first time Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to play together. They end up winning that clash after OT 107-104 but neither of the duo was the highest-scoring player for the team. Lou Williams finished with 27 points as Paul George added 25 points and Kawhi Leonard scored only 17 points but the most important was the victory. Before that L.A. Clippers also beat Oklahoma City Thunder 90-88 and Atlanta Hawks 150-101 and that victory was more than impressive giving the fact that Kawhi Leonard doesn’t play in that match.
These teams already played this season and Houston Rockets won that match 93-102 in Texas but the big difference in the upcoming clash will be Paul George. Also, L.A. Clippers are 9-1 at home and I expect them to beat the Rockets in Staples Center. Free NBA Picks: Los Angeles Clippers Spread
