The Houston Rockets look for a statement victory after beating the Dallas Mavericks in overtime in their bubble opener. The Houston Rockets are averaging 118.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. James Harden is averaging 34.6 points and 7.4 assists while Russell Westbrook is averaging 27.5 points and seven assists.

The Houston Rockets are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.9 rebounds per game.

Will update with trends once they're released.

The Milwaukee Bucks should be the favorites here simply because of their size, as they have so many big guys in Antetokounmpo, Lopez and others that they should give the Rockets all sorts of trouble considering Houston doesn't play anybody over 6'2" it seems like. However, the Rockets have more to play for with them fighting for seeding and having a rested Harden and Westbrook does wonders for this club. Also beating the Mavericks the way they did should give the Rockets a shot in the arm and lead to a more confident team overall.

The Houston Rockets are a dangerous team with the amount of shooters they have and two rested superstars ready to go. I want the Rockets and free points whenever I can get them.
