The Atlanta Hawks enter this game embroiled in a division race that looks destined to go down to the wire, as the Hawks, Hornets and Heat all have a realistic chance of taking down the Southeast.
The Houston Rockets cannot say the same thing unfortunately, as it looks like the loss of Christian Wood has destroyed their season, as they have lost 16 straight since losing the big man without any real end in sight.
Without a doubt the stretch run is going to be exciting for the Atlanta Hawks and if they want to have a real chance of becoming the top dog in the Southeast they are going to need to take care of business against teams like the Rockets.
There is some reason for concern in a spot like this for a young Hawks team, as that inexperience may make the Hawks overlook an opponent on a massive losing streak.It will be up to head coach Nate McMillan and All-Star point guard Trae Young to keep this team concentrated, as a loss here would be devastating for the morale of this team.
The one disappointing thing about this year for the Hawks is that they are not healthy losing Cam Reddish and De’Andre Hunter with the latter having a serious impact early on and it does make you wonder where this team could be if they had those two guys all season long.
The Houston Rockets are on a massive losing streak, and the reality of the situation is actually far worse than it looks at first glance, as most of those losses came in blow-out fashion. Things also just got worse for the Houston Rockets, as one of their solid veterans Eric Gordon has gone down with injury and is now going to be out for 4-6 weeks which essentially ends his season, as this Rockets team won’t be anywhere close the playoffs in 2021.
The Rockets were also especially bad in their last game against the Boston Celtics, as it was essentially last man standing Victor Oladipo against the Celtics and, as you probably guessed, it did not go well with the Rockets dropping that game 134-107.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
It does seem like a bit of a trap spot here with the Atlanta Hawks on the road, as a lot of casual bettors will take this as a sure win and yes, the Hawks should win, but this is a decent amount of points to be laying on the road.
The Atlanta Hawks do have a propensity to rope other teams into shootout type games and I do think that could happen here, as the Houston Rockets do still have Oladipo and a slew of young guys who may not be great NBA players at this point, but they can put up points, so the over looks like the most interesting proposition to look at in this game.
