The Rockets continue to hang on in the Western Conference standings and will look to grab a road win when they head into Milwaukee on Monday.
The Rockets and Bucks both come in off a loss, with the Bucks losing back to back games.
Houston has given everyone a chance to hang around in the West, as they simply cannot put together a winning streak to create some space.
The 7th and 8th spots are up for grabs and currently Houston holds onto the 8th spot, but has dropped 8 of their last 12 overall.
The Rockets started the 2nd half of the season with 11 of 13 being played on the road. Through the first 6 games, they have gone just 2-4 and come in following a loss to the Spurs, which put them one game under the .500 mark. That’s been the problem all season long for them, as they’ve flirted with the .500 mark, unable to really get above it and stay there.
James Harden has really picked his game up averaging 38 points over the past 3 games while playing 40 plus minutes in all 3.
The Bucks sit in 13th place, but are just 6.5 off the pace of the 8 seed. While it’s unlikely with the amount of teams they have to jump, it still is possible.
For starters, they’ll really have to put together a long string of wins.
That hasn’t been the case lately as they’ve fallen in back to back games, losing to Detroit and Boston. Slow starts have been the issue for the Bucks, as they’ve trailed by 10 after the 1st quarter in both losses.
G Jerryd Bayless has missed 5 straight games with a knee problem, but did practice Sunday and is expected to be back on Monday night.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
The Rockets have had trouble with consistency, but the key for them hasn’t been allowing long losing streaks to occur. They go through spells like they’re on now, losing 8 of 12, but they mix the wins in there.
Winning games like this is important, against lower tier teams.
Look for Harden to have another big game, en route to a Rockets win.
