(1-5) Houston Rockets vs. Chicago Bulls (2-6)
The Rockets are in Brooklyn on Friday night before making the trip back West, to the Mid-West, to play Chicago. This is the second of five straight games away from the Toyota Center for Houston.
The question of whether or not Houston has hit rock-bottom. The Rockets are 1–5 going into the game against the Nets, which won’t be any gimme, especially with James Harden set to miss his third straight game.
This is the one he may be back for. Harden was supposed to miss just two games but he’s doubtful for Friday night, which would mark three. He and James Ennis could be back anytime after that, though, and they’re eyeing this one.
That would be a huge lift on the second night of a back-to-back because the Rockets aren’t exactly young and chipper, nor highly motivated to play hard against a poor Eastern Conference opponent on the road.
The Bulls have just two wins this season, one against Charlotte and the other against Atlanta. It’s going to be that way until they can get healthy, namely getting back Lauri Markkanen and Denzel Valentine, among others.
Chicago lacks wing scoring and general playmaking without those two guys and a lot of the onus has fallen on Bobby Portis and Zach LaVine, at least until Portis went down this week with a knee injury.
It would have been easy to predict the Bulls would get whacked against Denver on Thursday, especially after what Klay Thompson did to them earlier in the week but Wendell Carter Jr. scored a career-high twenty-five points and Chicago forced the game to overtime.
Jabari Parker has been a disappointment after signing for one year and $20 million. He scored just six points in thirty-six minutes against Denver. The Bulls need his scoring more than ever now.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction: Houston finds a way.
This won’t be a pretty sight. There may not be two teams in more desperate need of help. Houston could get it in time, though. Keep on eye on Harden’s status because he could win this game by himself, even in his first game back from an injury.
