Houston’s Winning Streak On the Line against Toronto
The Houston Rockets are flying under the radar thanks to the Boston Celtics current 12-game winning streak, but it’s time we focused on a Western Conference leader.
Riding a 6-game winning streak, the Rockets are ahead of powerhouses like San Antonio and are first in the Western Conference. Currently undefeated in November, Houston will put their winning streak on the line as they host Canada’s Toronto Raptors Tuesday night.
※Current Odds Date & Time: November 14th, 2:00 p.m. (EST)
Online bookmaker BetOnline has the Rockets leading after the 1st quarter and O/U at 56 for the 1st quarter as well.
The Raptors currently sit in 4th place, with a 7–5 record. Playing in different cities hasn’t been accommodating to Toronto, as the Raps are 3–4 on the road this season. Houston is 4–2 at home. Toronto is 0–5 against teams that are at least two games above .500 and tonight’s contest marks their first back-to-back of the season.
It’s no surprise that franchise player DeMar DeRozan leads the team in minutes played per game at 34.6 MP/G. DeRozan is also Toronto’s largest offensive weapon, averaging 24.7 points-per-game. DeRozan’s partner in crime, Kyle Lowry, has put up 13.4 PTS/G, and the Raptors are seeing Serge Ibaka put up 13.3 PTS/G. Norman Powell exited last game is unlikely to play Tuesday.
Chris Paul has been sidelined since the middle of October but hopes to return Thursday against the Suns. James Harden and Eric Gordon are taking care of business, averaging 30.2 and 22.9 points-per-game respectively. The entire offense has flourished, as the Rockets are ranked 3rd in the league with 111.1 PTS/G. Their defense has also been stellar, sitting at 8th in the league.
