Game 4 of the 5 Christmas Day games features the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets going at it in Houston, Texas.
The Spurs come in road favorites in this one thanks to the struggles from the Rockets this season.
The good news for the Rockets comes from the fact that the Spurs have lost all 5 of their games this season on the road.
The Spurs go for their 8th straight victory when they come into Houston as 2 point underdogs on Friday night.
San Antonio has flew completely under the radar this season, but teams are finally taking notice as this team simply never loses. The thing is the Spurs aren’t just beating opponents, they’re destroying them.
San Antonio has won by an average of 21.4 points per game during this streak.
They had no problem on Wednesday against the Twolves as they put up 108 and cruised to a 25 point win. This Spurs team is by far the best defensive team in the NBA, thanks in large part to Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard had no problem shutting down the red hot Paul George on Monday as he held him to just 1 of 14 shooting. Leonard followed that up with shutting Wiggins down as the young Twolves star shot just 2 of 11 for 10 points.
Overall, the Spurs are allowing just 88.8 points against per game.
Houston has turned a bit of a corner, but still have a ton of work to do after their horrid start.
The Rockets were just 5-10 at home point, but have since rattled off 10 wins in 15 tries to get back to the .500 mark. However, they do come in off a loss to Orlando 104-101 on Wednesday.
SF Trevor Ariza had another night where simply nothing was falling and he went ice cold from the field. Ariza is just 6 of 20 over the past 2 games and has averaged 6.5 points per game in that span. Ariza was firing from behind the arc on Wednesday, but missed all 8 threes attempted.
James Harden has picked up Ariza’s slack over the past two games as he’s averaging 33.5 points per game with 21 made field goals.
Look for PG Patrick Beverley to step up as he’s just 7 of 25 shooting over his last 3 games.
