Some tempers may flare here on Saturday when the Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks meet.
Dwight Howard made it known he didn’t fit in during his time with the Rockets and now with recent reports of James Harden expressing his dislike for Howard, things could become heated when the two teams meet in Atlanta.
The Houston Rockets reached the Conference Finals back in the 2014-2015 when James Harden and Dwight Howard were completely in sync.
However, since that time, the two have become completely separated and after the Rockets hired Mike D’Antoni this past offseason, Dwight Howard declined his option.
The Rockets now lean heavily on James Harden to produce and thus far, he’s doing plenty of that to keep the Rockets going.
Harden has averaged 31.8 points and 12.4 assists thus far into the season. Harden has shown no signs of slowing down and he’ll need to continue that for the Rockets to have success.
Along side Harden, Eric Gordon continues to be a huge part of this team. Gordon is averaging 17.6 points per game and comes in off a 21 point performance.
It’s going to take more than just those two for this Houston team to continue their impressive play, but for now, they continue to put the team on their backs.
After losing Al Horford in free agency, the Hawks jumped at the first chance to grab Dwight Howard.
Atlanta has dropped back to back games after their 3-0 start to the season, but they are seeing encouraging signs from Howard, who signed a three year 70.5 million dollar deal.
Howard has 4 double-doubles and is putting up 16.4 points per game to go along with 12 rebounds.
They come in off a loss on Friday night, where they put up just 92 points, which marked the first time this season they haven’t scored over 100 points.
Atlanta has taken care of business in this head to head matchup. They’ve won the last 5 matchups by 7 points per game.
