Tuesday, December 3 finds Southwest Division rivals the Houston Rockets on the road to hosts the San Antonio Spurs in their first meeting this season.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Rockets winning three of the matches. The Spurs hold the all-time record having bested the Rockets in 108 of their 197 matches.
James Harden dropped 60 points in three quarters Saturday en route to the Rockets drubbing of the Hawks. Running mate Russell Westbrook chipped in with 15 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists.
The 60 points were collected via the Beard hitting 16 of 24 field goal attempts with eight 3-pointers and he got to the charity stripe an unprecedented 23 times connecting on 20.
This was the fourth time Harden scored 60 points putting him in distinguished company, tied with Michael Jordan. Only Kobe Bryant (6) and Wilt Chamberlain (32) have accomplished more 60 point games.
Ben McLemore (24), Chris Clemons (16), Austin Rivers (14), and PJ Tucker (10) were the other double-digit contributors.
On the season, Harden is the team leader in scoring (38.9), assists (7.8) and steals (1.7). Clint Capela leads three other team categories including rebounding (14.7), field goal percent (63.7) and blocks (2.0).
Capela and Danuel House Jr. missed games recently due to illness but are expected to suit up. Eric Gordon (knee) is out until the end of the month. Gerald Green (foot) could be back in May while Nene (groin) is out indefinitely.
San Antonio Spurs
Gregg Popovich is enduring a season unlike any since his inaugural year behind the bench. The Spurs have lost 13 of their last 16 games, gone on an 8-game losing streak all capped by an embarrassing 132-98 drubbing at the hands of the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.
In the loss, DeMar DeRozan led the team scoring 20 points with two assists and four rebounds. Lonnie Walker IV scored 13 and Rudy Gay had 12 as the only other double-digit contributors.
On the season, DeMar DeRozan is the team leader in scoring (21.6), assists (4.5) and field goal percent (52.6). LaMarcus Aldrige tops the team leaderboard for rebounding (6.7) and blocks (1.8) while Dejounte Murray is the steals leader (1.5).
Aldridge didn’t dress in Detroit due to right thigh soreness, leaving his status up in the air for the match Tuesday versus the Rockets.

Free Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
Although James Harden is on fire the Rockets aren’t exactly a team who are playing lockdown defense. This has trap game written all over it.
If there’s a coach to figure out a game plan to stop Harden it’s Gregg Popovich. The problem is the one thing you can’t game plan for is defending Harden to the point he doesn’t collect whistles and get to the line.
