Houston Rockets Betting

The Rockets have dropped two games in a row and want answers. Offense has been sputtering but head coach Mike D’Antoni refuses to sound the alarm. The Hornets may be a team they can handle but could buzz to their surprise. James Harden and Russell Westbrook need to come out locked and loaded if they want to stop the bleeding.

Players to watch: J. Harden SG 57 GP 57 GS 36.8 MIN 34.9 PTS 1.1 OR 5.2 DR 6.3 REB 7.4 AST 1.7 STL 0.9 BLK 4.4 TO 3.4 PF 1.7 AST/TO 28.98 PER

Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Hornets want to end their three-game losing streak, the last at the hands of the Denver Nuggets. Devonte Graham returned and had a good game but needs more help on offense. Defense could increase their chances, limiting teams to just 109.5 points per game. The story could be different this weekend as they face a offensive-heavy Rockets.

Players to Watch: D. Graham PG 59 GP 49 GS 35 MIN 17.6 PTS 0.7 OR 2.8 DR 3.5 REB 7.5 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.9 TO 1.9 PF 2.6 AST/TO 15.19 PER
