10-4-1 in Ylikerroin forum after Toronto delivered nice and easy win last night. Lets make it a winning streak ...Rockets vs Wizards
Both teams have a record of 21-8 and as the Rockets come to play after having a tough game last night against the Spurs it is seen as an equal match-up by the bookies. It is likely to be so, as the Wizards have more energy and the Rockets have home court advantage.
There are 2 key factors to dictate the tempo of this game. As said, the Rockets have to play it in a back-to-back situation after having to compete against the defending champions for full 48 minutes and of course the Wizards know that trying to play an uptempo game against the Rockets in Houston is not the smartest thing to do. So, both teams should be more or less happy with playing the half-court offense.
Houston has been scoring at a lower rate in back-to-back situations as of late (95 points against SAC and 90 points against NOP) and Washington has been knowingly slowing the tempo against the high-scoring teams. We have 2 teams that match up well against each other defensively, so there will be a lot of dribbling and jumpshots. Neither of the teams should be good enough to run away with a blowout vistory, so we expect 4th quarter, close game intensity as well as reasons mentioned above to lead it to a low-scoring affair. Take under 198.5 points with 2/5 units.
