DeMar DeRozan is averaging 20.1 points and five rebounds while Dejounte Murray is averaging 14.6 points and 7.2 rebounds. Keldon Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Patty Mills is dishing 2.7 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 39.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game.
The Houston Rockets look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Houston Rockets are averaging 111.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 22 points and 10.2 rebounds while Victor Oladipo is averaging 20.8 points and 5.1 assists.

The Spurs are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 20-8-1 in Rockets last 29 overall. The Spurs are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Houston and 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
We've cashed some nice tickets on the Spurs in the underdog role dating back to the NBA bubble, but they're not playing well right now, losing their last five games by an average of 6.2 points. The Houston Rockets have caught fire since the trade of James Harden, winning their last five games by an average of 8.4 points while allowing just 43.3 percent shooting from the field. The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Spurs and Rockets. I'll lay the small number with the Rockets.
