The best match up on Sunday takes place in Toronto Canada when the Rockets take on the Raptors.
Both teams are playing good basketball as of late, and will be a good test for both teams.
This is the second meeting between the two teams this year. The Raptors won the first meeting 115-102.
The Rockets have been one of the most surprising teams in the NBA this year. They look like a real contender to be the be able to knock off the Warriors in the Western Conference.
Over the last ten games the Rockets are 8-2 and come into this game with a seven game winning streak.
The story for the Rockets this year has been all about the offense and the three point shooting.
The Rockets offense is run through James Harden, but he finally has three point shooters around him to really make the offense run.
The Rockets average 114.3 points per game and shoot 46.9 percent from the field.
On the road the Rockets are 14-6.
The Toronto Raptors once again look like the team that will have the best chance to knock off the Cavaliers come playoff time.
The Raptors like the Rockets do most of their damage from the offensive side of the ball. DeMar DeRozen and Kyle Lowry are the keys to the Raptors team.
They make up one of the most dangerous back courts in the NBA, and the Raptors seem to go where they do.
DeRozen leads the team scoring 27.4 points per game. Even though he scores all those points he’s not really a threat from deep.
The Raptors are best when they push the ball, so expect to see a fast paced, up and down game.
On the home court this season the Raptors are 12-5.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
This game is going to have a lot of scoring, and a very up and down tempo. The difference is going to come down to who can play a little defense. I think Harden will be too much for the Rockets and they will pull out the victory, but it will be close.
