The Rockets look to continue to massive winning streak when they welcome in the Brooklyn Nets on Monday.
The Rockets have won 6 straight games, while the Nets look to avoid back to back losses.
The Brooklyn Nets aren’t shy about hoisting shots up.
The Nets are the 2nd team in the NBA when it comes to most three point shots per game, with only the Rockets ahead of them.
Brooklyn attempts 34.2 three pointers, but hits on only 32 percent of them on average. This team certainly lives and dies behind the arc and with their 6-16 start to the season, it certainly hasn’t been a successful strategy.
The Nets won’t find any success going forward unless they buckle down on the defensive end.
Brooklyn is allowing 115 points per game and that number climbs when playing on the road as they allow 118.2 points per game. The Nets enter play just 1-8 SU away from New York.
SG Bojan Bogdanovic has been one of the lone bright spots for the Nets lately, as he has shot 15 of 24 from the field over the past 2 games.
The Rockets shoot 37.2 three pointers per game, which easily tops in the league, but their success rate is far better than the Nets.
Houston connects on 37.7 percent of their 3 point shots and had a solid performance going 19 of 37 on Saturday in a 109-87 win over Dallas.
Houston has found success with sharing the ball, as they’re getting contributions from everyone.
James Harden in particular, has been exceptionally big for Houston during this winning streak. Harden comes in off a performance that saw him go for 18 points, 16 assists, and 9 rebounds.
The Rockets are in the midst of an NBA record as they’ve hit at least 10 3 pointers in 23 straight games.
Houston went 0-2 last season against Brooklyn.
