With the season winding down, games like this mean so much to both teams.
Houston and Toronto get set for battle on Sunday, as both teams continue to fight in the playoff races.
Houston currently battles for the 8th spot in the West, while Toronto continues to push toward the Cavaliers.
The Rockets currently hold a 2 game lead for the 8th spot in the West and will deal with a weekend back to back here on Saturday and Sunday.
Houston will take on Eastern Conference foe Chicago, before heading to Toronto on Sunday.
The Rockets come in off a loss this past week to the Bucks, a game in which their defense really let them down. Milwaukee shot 59.3% as they racked up 128 points. Games like that are certainly what will kill Houston down the stretch of the season as they cannot lose to lesser teams in the NBA.
Turnovers have also been a problem for the Rockets lately. The loss to Milwaukee was another bad game in terms of that as they had 21 turnovers, which led to many fast breaks for Milwaukee.
Look for Houston really focus on ball security and perimeter defense in this one with Toronto’s shooters.
Toronto is right there in the East and they don’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.
The Raptors look to make it 3 in a row when they take on the Rockets here. Toronto took the last meeting between these two teams 99-96, in Toronto, however that was last season back on 3/30 of 2015.
The Raptors get the benefit of homecourt here as well, as they’ve dominated north of the border. Toronto has gone 23-6, which includes a recent win over number 1 seed Cleveland there.
Unlike Houston, the Raptors have been dominant on the defensive end. Toronto concedes just 98.1 points per game and it gets better at home with 97.1 conceded.
Toronto matches up well with Houston as aside from Harden and Howard, the Raptors have many more playmakers that can shoot and get to the bucket.
