The Houston Rockets are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.3 rebounds per game. The Houston Rockets have won four of their last six road games.
The San Antonio Spurs are desperate for a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 110.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 115.1 points on 47.8 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.6 points and 5.5 rebounds while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 18.9 points and 2.5 assists.

The Rockets are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Southwest and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Spurs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Rockets are 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the home team is 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 overall. The under is 20-7 in Rockets last 27 road games.
The Houston Rockets are on a tear offensively and Harden is looking like an MVP candidate, as those early struggles seem to be a thing of the past. The San Antonio Spurs are a complete mess and look like they'll finally miss the playoffs for the first time since the Titanic sunk. The Spurs may also be without LaMarcus Aldridge due to a thigh injury. Either way, the Houston Rockets should cruise in this contest. I want nothing to do with the San Antonio Spurs right now and I'm surprised this line is this low. Almost seems to easy.
