Houston powered through a win against Milwaukee in their last game after being as placed a five-point underdog to start the game. James Harden was spectacular as usual for the Rockets putting up 24 points on 5 of 14 shooting.
Trail Blazers were in a nail biter in their first game of bubble action after coming back from a 20+ point deficit against the Celtics, but ultimately suffering the loss against the B’s.
Rockets are 2-0 in their bubble games since the NBA restart in Orlando. James Harden and Russell Westbrook are proving that it’s business, as usual, taking down the top team in the east on Saturday.
Westbrook led the team in scoring against the Bucks with 31 points and are proving that the small ball lineup can be successful.
Houston is the highest-scoring offense in the NBA averaging 118.68 points per game. James Harden is the teams leading scorer averaging 34.4 points per game and Westbrook locks in as the second-leading scorer with 27.6 points per game.
Without PJ Tucker the Rockets are proving they can still do damage against teams. He’s their biggest player in size so Houston is taking small ball to a whole new level right now.
Portland Trail Blazers
Dame Lillard literally willed the Blazers to come back from their 20 point deficit against the Celts the last time out. He couldn’t be stopped by Boston’s defense and fell just short when they started to double team him in the fourth quarter.
Lillard had 30 points on 8 of 20 shooting in 44 minutes of work. Not a great shooting night for the all-star, but he also had 16 assists to his credit. Jusef Nurkic has been stellar since his return pouring on 30 points against Boston and will definitely have a heavy workload against Houston on Tuesday with their small lineup.
Portland’s leading scorer is Lillard with 28.9 points per game and CJ McCollum is the team’s second-leading scorer 22.6 points per game.
Trail Blazers are the seventh-best offense in the NBA averaging 114.18 points per contest and are surrendering 115.72 points a game.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Trail Blazers need the win more than the Rockets here they are two games back of the eighth spot in the West and with the Grizzlies losing today should seize this opportunity to jump up the board. Jusef Nurkic is going to eat tomorrow with the small ball lineup and not one player should be able to stop him in tomorrow’s matchup.
