It’s a cross conference showdown on Thursday night when the Houston Rockets travel to Charlotte to take on the Hornets.
Both teams are coming into this game having won their last game.
This is the second meeting between the two teams. Houston won that match up 121-114.
The Houston Rockets look like a real contender in the Western Conference and look like they could make some real noise come playoff time.
The Rockets come into this game having won five of their last ten games. They however have won three of the last four games. Their only loss was a 113-108 game to the Hawks.
The Rockets are an elite team on the offensive side of the ball. They push the ball up and down the court and shoot a ton of three pointers.
The Rockets average 114.3 points per game and shoot 46.6 percent from the field.
This game is going to come down to the defensive side of the ball for the Rockets. They need to slow down Kemba Walker and their offense to be able to win this game.
The Houston Rockets come into this game with an 18-11 record on the road.
The Charlotte Hornets finally got out of the losing column when they beat the Brooklyn Nets in their last game. They had lost their previous seven games and dropped out of the top eight in the Eastern Conference.
This is a huge game for many reasons for the Hornets. They need to get confidence back and this would do just that, and they need to get back in the playoff picture and a winning streak could do that for them.
Most of the problems for the Hornets in their losing streak came on the defensive side of the ball. Over their last five games they have given up 112 points on the defensive side of the ball, well only scoring 104.8.
For the Hornets to win they need to play defense better then they have been. The Rockets score a lot of points and the Hornets will not be able to keep up with them if they get up in the 120’s.
At home this season the Hornets have a record of 16-10.
