(0-1) Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Clippers (1-1)
The first week of the NBA season is in full swing and it’s a light slate of games on Sunday. In this game the Houston Rockets will make the trip to the STAPLES Center to take on the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Rockets have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Houston Rockets will play their second game in as many nights inside STAPLES Center when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
On Saturday night there is no question they will be emotionally charged trying to ruin LeBron James first game with the Lakers.
In their first game of the season the Rockets didn’t look good. They gave up 131 points against the New Orleans Pelicans and they couldn’t pull it out late.
There was talk all offseason that the Rockets had filled the void that Trevor Ariza left when he went to the Suns but in game one they looked to really miss him.
The Rockets offense is always going to be there but the defense is going to need to be better in this game. They need to try and out to a fast start and also forced a little bit of their will on the defensive side.
If the defense struggles early they could leave Staples Center with a loss.
Los Angeles Clippers
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Clippers who come into this game with a 1-1 record but they really weren’t impressive on Friday night against the Thunder.
It was more of what the Thunder couldn’t do rather than what the Clippers were doing but at the end of the day a win is a win.
The Clippers are led in scoring by Tobias Harris who is averaging 22 points and 10 rebounds per game and he is going to need to have a huge game in this one.
In this game the Clippers defense needs to be good. They need to try and slow down the Rockets offense and hopes that’s enough.
