The Houston Rockets play host to the Phoenix Suns at the Toyota Center on Saturday night.

The Phoenix Suns have been in rough shape as they've lost seven of their past 10 games but they will be looking to build some momentum after outlasting the Pelicans in a 139-132 overtime road win on Thursday. Devin Booker led the team with 44 points with eight rebounds and nine assists on 13 of 24 shooting, Frank Kaminsky added 20 points, Ricky Rubio racked up 13 points with 15 assists while Cameron Johnson provided the spark off the bench with 18 points. As a team, the Suns shot 46 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line as they took over in overtime after blowing a 20-point lead in regulation.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets look to have recovered from their three-game skid as they've now won three of their last four after blowing past the Raptors in a 119-109 road win on Thursday. Ben McLemore drained eight 3-pointers to lead the team with 28 points, James Harden faced double teams all night and scored 23 points with five steals while Russell Westbrook racked up a triple-double of 19 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists while shooting seven of 27. As a team, the Rockets shot just 40 percent from the field and 22 of 55 from the 3-point line as they found themselves in a one-point game early in the fourth quarter, before going on a pivotal 12-3 run to escape with the win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Suns are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record, 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a win and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record, 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall.
 
Head to head, the over is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings, the Suns are 21-8 ATS in the last 29 meetings in Houston and the Suns are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.
 
The Rockets have now won three of their last four games, with two of those games coming against solid competition in the Heat and the Raptors, while the Suns were going through some struggles before steadying the ship with narrow wins over the Hornets and the Pelicans. The Rockets have won eight of their 10 home games and I think they can keep that trend going with another win here, but the Suns are back on the rise after a bit of a slump and I think they can push the Rockets or at least keep it to single digits.
