The Rockets look to continue their red hot offensive play when they welcome in the Washington Wizards on Monday night.
The Washington Wizards have battled all season long to get to the .500 mark and now that they’re finally there, they’ll have to overcome James Harden and one of the best offenses in the NBA on Monday.
Washington has won 3 straight games and has put together a solid stretch that has seen them win 10 of their last 15 games.
The Wizards come in off a dominating performance that saw them drop 118 on the Nets in what was a 118-95 win.
The key for the Wizards during this nice month or so of solid play has been many of the bench players stepping up.
Trey Burke is one who really came through, as he turned in a season high 27 points last time out as he hit 5 3 point field goals.
PG John Wall also continues to tear things out. He has now recorded 8 double-doubles in his last 9 contests.
The Rockets are becoming scary good offensively.
Houston is averaging 115 points per game, but they have been recording numbers well above their season average as of late.
Harden put in 52 points last time out as the Rockets just continue to string together wins.
Winners of 4 straight, Houston capped a 15-2 month off with their win over the Knicks on New Years Eve.
It’s no secret that this Rockets team leans on James Harden, but the supporting cast around him is coming up huge.
The Rockets like to attack and attack quickly. They aren’t going to be shy about hoisting the 3 ball, as they shoot 38% as a team from behind the arc.
