It’s a full slate of games across the NBA on Tuesday. In this game the New Orleans Pelicans make the trip to the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets.
The visiting team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are in a world of trouble right now and who knows where this downfall is going to end. They are having all kinds of issues winning games and now Anthony Davis has requested a trade away from the team although it appears he will continue to play for now.
In this game though Davis isn’t expected to play because he is still dealing with a finger injury that is going to keep him out.
For the Pelicans it’s about the offense, but the defense is really struggling. So far this season they are giving up 115 points per game.
In this game it’s going to be all about slowing down James Harden. Harden is having no issue scoring against everyone and that is going to need to be slowed down if they want a chance.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Rockets who have been playing really and it’s all been the James Harden show.
On the season Harden is averaging 36.3 points, 8.2 assists, and 6.6 rebounds per game. In this game it’s going to need to be the Harden show again.
In the Rockets last game against the Magic Harden put up 40 points, 11 rebounds, and six assists. The good news for the Rockets is Chris Paul is back again.
This has been a team that has been hit hard with injuries so it’s good for their chances that Paul comes back and plays well in this game.
