The Rockets are a mess and they’re about to hit the road. Houston has lost four in a row, including its last three home games by a combined fifty points against the Jazz, Clippers and Trail Blazers.
This will be the first of five road games in a row. The trip starts in Brooklyn and ends in San Antonio. The first two are the most winnable, against the Nets and Bulls.
Except James Harden probably won’t be back for this game, according to Head Coach Mike D’Antoni. Harden has sat the last two with a pulled muscle, which was how long his initial diagnosis had him out for.
It sounds like the Rockets are going to be cautious with the reigning MVP, however.
That will, once again, leave things up to Chris Paul, Eric Gordon, Clint Capela and, of course, Carmelo Anthony. ‘Melo and Paul have been unsightly in the early going. They scored just twenty-five points against Portland on more shots than that.
After pressing all season a year ago to get the home court advantage in the playoffs, Houston appears more patient this season, content to take losses early on.
The Nets snapped a three-game losing streak after starting the season 2–2. Spencer Dinwiddie was the hero in the one-point, overtime victory over the Pistons on Wednesday night.
Dinwiddie hit the game-tying three with less than thirty ticks to go in regulation before splashing in the game-winner from beyond the arc in overtime. He left just enough time for Blake Griffin to throw up a fadeaway at the buzzer that didn’t go.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson looked better in his second game since returning from an injury he suffered way back in August on a trip to China. He’ll play a key role for the Nets, who aren’t short on capable backcourt scorers but lack some bulk on the front line.
Jarrett Allen has some help defending the rim this season in Ed Davis, the former North Carolina Tar Heel, who established himself as a fringe rotation guy in Portland. He’s shown a good motor in the first couple weeks of this season.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction: Brooklyn.
The Rockets aren’t going to slumber much longer; they can’t afford to in the West. But if Harden really is out again, I just don’t have a lot of confidence this team is going to be able to score as well as its defense is poor.
Ideally, I’d like to get some points with Brooklyn and I probably won’t play the Nets unless I do. This game feels like a pick, though.
