The Rockets blast into this evening’s matchup sporting a 30-22 record that ranks them 2nd in the Southwest Division. But in the Western Conference, Houston ranks 6th overall. And since they’re only 2 games ahead of the 8th seeded Los Angeles Clippers, Houston’s playoff standing isn’t all that secure. Fortunately the Rockets should be able to improve on their record this evening since they’re facing Phoenix. All in all Houston is 9-1 in their last 10 against the Suns, so they should have this locked up. At the end of the day, the Rockets come in with the better offense and better defense. Right now Houston is scoring 112.7 per game while the Suns are putting up 106.2. Defensively the Rockets are allotting 111.1 per matchup while Phoenix is giving up 115.7.
Players to Watch: James Harden (36.3 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 8.1 apg), Clint Capela (17.6 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 1.5 apg), and Kenneth Faried (16.4 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 1.0 apg).
The Suns are having an atrocious season and their 11-43 record reflects that perfectly. Entering tonight’s matchup riding a 10 game losing streak, it’s clear the franchise brings zero momentum into this Monday night contest. Naturally tonight’s odds are pegging Phoenix as a massive underdog, despite the fact that they’re on the road. Ultimately the betting trends make it perfectly clear that the Suns will be outmatched in every way tonight. Fortunately there’s still plenty of value to be had off of Phoenix Monday night woes.
Players to Watch: Devin Booker (25.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 6.8 apg), TJ Warren (18.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.5 apg), and Deandre Ayton (16.3 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 2.0 apg).
