Houston Rockets vs Memphis by Harris
Game number 3 out of 4 between them already this season. The 4th and final meeting will be next week. What could have possibly have changed in 2 weeks for Houston? Nothing. CP3 is still out. So why should they beat a team they already lost twice just weeks ago? Memphis has a plan to play the Rockets. They changed their old style of slow tempo this season letting old dogs like Zebo, "Air Canada" Vince Carter and Tony Allen go. For that they brought some young blood into the team and now they still play defence on a high level but at much more pace then they used to. That doesn´t fit Houston. They need the control of the game. As soon as they are out of it, means trouble.
Memphis has put Brooks into the starting lineup and Harrison has been send to the bench. The rookie is responding well, so is the rest of the team. Gasol and Conley making this team looking good and the bench is really making the difference. There is always someone who could go quickly on fire.
Even so, no discredit for the Rockets. Good team yes but as i said in my last preview against the Cavs, they still have problems to play solid teams. The record right now could be blinding and for me there is no reason for backing them against a team they already lost twice this early season. These odds have clearly value for me.
I take Memphis for the upset as well tonight.
