Monday, November 26 finds the Houston Rockets meeting up vs. the Washington Wizards as meet for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. Houston last played Saturday and in a bit of a surprise lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-108. The Washington Wizards last played Saturday when they defeated the New Orleans Pelicans.
Last season, the teams split their two game season series. The Wizards hold the all-time record having bested the Rockets in 79 of their 149 matches.
After seemingly getting back on track winning five games in a row the Rockets have dropped their last two games the first in overtime to the Detroit Pistons who they played on a home and home series.
However, the loss in Cleveland more closely resembled the Rockets squad who started the year 1-5. James Harden scored 40 points on 14 of 30 from the field and got to the line 12 times connecting on 7 of his attempts. The only other Rockets to score in double digits were Eric Gordon (28) and Clint Capela (12).
Injuries are mounting again for Houston as Chris Paul (leg) is once again battling a lingering issue also questionable for Monday is Gerald Green (ankle).
Players who are definitely out are Zhou Qi (ankle), Nene (calf) and Brandon Knight (knee) while Carmelo Anthony remains away from the team as they seek a trade partner for him.
Six players scored in double figures for the Wizards to beat the Pelicans. Otto Porter Jr. led the way with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Although many believe John Wall is the key issue in the locker room, his on court production remains high. He had a healthy 22 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds versus New Orleans.
While the Wizards started the season with a concerning 9-2 record they’ve since gone 5-3 with two of their losses against upper echelon teams (Blazers, Raptors).
No doubt after news leaked management was open to trading anyone on the roster the phones rang repeatedly for the services of team point leader Bradley Beal (21.5 points per game).
Dwight Howard missed the past four games with gluteal soreness and it is questionable for Monday’s game against the Rockets.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
Both squads are desperate to win this game and these squads always seem to dig in and battle when facing each other. This could come down to whichever squad decides to defend first.
That sounds simple but the Wizards rank 28th defensively while the Rockets rank 24th.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wizards to +2.5
If Chris Paul can’t play it will change the dynamic, but on paper at least Houston has more talent. That said this should be a close scoring game.
