Houston Rockets Preview
Since the Houston Rockets broke away from James Harden, they have gone 7-4 and have the best defensive efficiency in the NBA. According to cleantheglass.com, the Rockets are only allowing 99.8 points per 100, 13.3 points better than the league average.
The Houston Rockets are full of players who have a chip on their shoulders after departing or being released from their previous team. This gives them a competitive edge as they always try to prove themselves wrong every time they step on the court.
We expect the Houston Rockets to be full of energy against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Key Players – John Wall
John Wall is the lead player for the Houston Rockets as they prepare to face off against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Wall has shown that he can still play at the All-Star level this season after Akilis’ injury. The 30-year-old guard averaged 17.8 points and 5.8 assists this season.
John Morr will have his hands full in his matchup against Jay Morant, but if he can produce 20+ points, it will be enough to secure a Houston Rockets victory.
