Memphis vs Houston Rockets by Demogorgon

Memphis
VS
Houston-Rockets
Memphis is facing the Rockets for the second time this season, after winning on the road 90-98 a few days ago. They have been very good so far with 4 wins, two of those against the Rockets and the Warriors and a loss to the Mavericks. They are scoring an average of 101 points per game at the moment, while at home it goes up to 103 and they were dominant in the paint against shooting teams like Golden State and Houston. Once more i expect them to get many points inside the paint and as long as they are solid in defense and the Rockets wont shoot well from beyond the arc, they are hot favorites.

 

The Rockets on the other hand got an easy win yesterday but they faced a team with several issues and not many players who can take tough shots and be efficient under pressure so it was all about Kemba Walker who could not beat the Rockets by himself. Now, i did not like the Rockets yesterday, they seemed affraid to shoot the ball and looked constanlty for the extra pass, which thankfuly did not cost them in the end. Though today against a team that is going to to secure the paint, they will have to do some damage from 3p and hit on fast breaks as they do not stand a chance in low tempo and set plays.

 

I expect the Rockets to score above 100 points, as they have done so far on the road averaging well above 105 points, this time agaisnt the Grizlies, while on the other hand without strength inside the paint i can see how they will be efficient in defense today so the over at this small line has to be the play.pin
