This game is a big time mismatch. Assuming the Rockets score like they normally do I don’t see how the Cavs keep pace.
I am a fan of coach John Beilein but bringing college coaches to the pros doesn’t seem to work often. He does not have a ton to work with either.
Houston has been prone to lapses but this is a good spot for them. They should win going away, even on the road.
Houston has won four of six game but those two losses were by a combined three points. This team is playing pretty good ball.
They have still yet to unlock the potential of Russell Westbrook but there are worse things than having your second best player average 22ppg, 8rpg and 7apg.
James Harden is having another amazing season. He is averaging a league high 38ppg, two more than last year. Sure his usage is high but why would you not encourage him to shoot and shoot some more.
Some of that is also the lack of Eric Gordon. He was not having a good season before he got hurt but that is a guy who usually scored 18 to 20ppg
Clint Capela continues to take what he can get to the tune of 14ppg and 14rpg. He may never really advance his game but those numbers play in any lineup.
If this team can get more from Westbrook they might be able to take things to the next level. There is a but of me that things they are playing possum too and that he could be doing more.
Cleveland has lost seven game in a row, not a huge surprise given their overall lack of talent.
Most concerning to me is that they have not scored more than 94 points in any of their last four games. This team is second to last in scoring and their defense is nowhere near good enough to keep them in the game when they struggle to score.
Here is a new low (maybe). In their most recent game, a loss to Boston, only one starter scored in double figures. It was the unexpectedly frisky Tristan Thompson who had 17. That matched their starting but inexperience backcourt.
Things are definitely not right in Cleveland right now. A visit from Harden and the Rockets ups the entertainment value but is it unlikely to yield a win.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
There is no rational argument in support of Cleveland in this one. I expect it will be ugly and could be in a hurry.
I wonder if having to take on the stars that Houston has could inspire the young backcourt of Cleveland. That might be fun.
