The Cleveland Cavaliers are riding a one game win. Cleveland beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 124-119 in their last game. The Cavaliers are one game under .500 through 11 games this year.
The Houston Rockets are on a three game win streak and most recently won at home, 137-110 against the Utah Jazz. Houston is 8-3 to start the first month of the season.
Last season, Cleveland and Houston took the court against each other twice. The teams split the series, 1-1. Cleveland won the most recent contest last March, 117-112 in Houston.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have sputtered to start the season. Cleveland is 5-6 on the year, and 2-3 over their last five games. Cleveland took down the Bucks by five points at home Tuesday. Kevin Love had 32 points and 16 rebound and LeBron James added 30 points 8 rebounds and 9 assists.
Aside from yeterday’s win, the Cavaliers should be 1-4 over their last five games. LeBron James dropped 57 against the Wizards on the road to earn a tough win. If Cleveland is going to be a top three team in the East, they might want to consider another key free agent before the all star break.
Team chemistry has been an issue early on this season for the Cavaliers. Future hall of fame inductee, Dwayne Wade has been underwhelming with Cleveland. Wade is averaging 9.1 points per game and is no longer a starter.
On the defensive side of the court, Cleveland is arguably the worse team in the NBA. The Cavaliers are allowing 114 points per game this year! Good enough for 28th in the league this season.
As LeBron James goes, so do the Cleveland Cavaliers. Without any help, James and company can be in for a long night in Houston.
The Houston Rockets are one of the best teams in the Western Conference again this year. James Harden looks like the early season favorite to win the MVP. Harden has been dynamic averaging 29.5 points, 9.7 assists and 4 rebounds on the year.
Aside from Harden’s play, Eric Gordon has been averaging 23.1 points per game this season. Gordon has moved from sixth man to an all star caliber performer for the Rockets. It will be surprising to see how the Rockets play once Chris Paul returns from injury.
Defensively, the Rockets are ranked in the top ten. Houston is allowing 103.3 points per game this season. Good enough to rank ninth in the NBA. Once Paul is healthy, the defense will be even better.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
The Cavaliers look like a squad still trying to find an identity. Aside from James, the Cleveland locker room has more going on that just an early season hangover.
This game has blowout potential. Houston is clearly the younger more talented team this year. The emergence of Eric Gordon, and the improved Rockets defense should take care of Cleveland at home.
