Houston Rockets Betting
The Rockets’ three-game winning streak ended in Brooklyn as the Nets unleashed a suffocating perimeter defense late in the game to eke out a 123-116 win over the visiting team. James Harden, who dropped 59 points in the historic 159-158 win over the Washington Wizards last week, still finished with 36 points despite going 10-for-31 from the field and 2-for-16 from beyond the arc. His co-star Russell Westbrook also had another great all-around game with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists. Overall, Houston shot 41.9 percent from the field and a cold 25 percent (12-for-44) from beyond the arc.
Players to Watch: James Harden (36.6 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 8.6 APG), Russell Westbrook (23.5 PPG, 11.0 RPG, 9.8 APG), Clint Capela (14.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 1.2 APG)
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat have surged to 4-1 start this season, thanks to incredible plays from rookies Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro. Nunn, in particular, has now scored the most points (112) by an undrafted player in NBA history through his first five games. In the Heat’s 106-97 win over the Hawks last Thursday, Nunn sizzled with 28 points while Herro added 17 off the bench. Jimmy Butler finished with just 5 points on 2-for-10 shooting but dished out 11 assists.
Players to Watch: Kendrick Nunn (22.4 PPG, 2.4 RPG, 2.6 APG), Goran Dragic (16.4 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 4.2 APG), Tyler Herro (16.4 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.0 APG)
