It’s a Western conference showdown on Friday night in the big easy. The Houston Rockets come to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.
Both of these teams come into this game having played good basketball as of late. This is the third meeting of the year between the two teams this year. Houston won the first two meetings.
The Houston Rockets are one of the most exciting teams the NBA has had in years. They come into this game having won seven of their last ten games.
In their last game against the Lakers they but an absolute beat down on them. They won 139-100 in a game they couldn’t seem to miss a shot.
The Rockets strength is on the offense side of the court. They average 115.5 points per game well shooting 46.3 percent from the field.
To win this game it’s going to come down to that side of the ball. They need to push the pace in this game and really try and push this game up to the 115’s or 120’s.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are still trying to figure out how to coexist DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. In time the results will probably be impressive but right now the results are ugly.
They come into this game having won four of their last ten games. They however have won two of their last three.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. They need to find a way to slow down this game and try to keep this a half court game.
One thing to watch in this game is if Cousins is able to play. He left the last game with an undisclosed injury and is questionable for this game.

This game is going to come down to how well the Pelicans are able to slow down the Rockets. I don’t think the Pelicans will have much success with it.
I expect the Rockets to come out with the three ball firing and really take control of the game.
