The Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. The Houston Rockets look to snap a five-game losing streak. The Phoenix Suns look to build on their six-game winning streak.
The Houston Rockets are averaging 108.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 117.6 points on 48.1 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 17.6 points and 10.2 rebounds, while Jalen Green is averaging 14.4 points and 3.2 rebounds. Eric Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Porter Jr. is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.3 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.
The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113.7 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 105.4 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.5 points and 5.3 rebounds, while Deandre Ayton is averaging 16.4 points and 10.3 rebounds. Chris Paul is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.2 rebounds per game.
The Rockets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 25-10-1 in Rockets last 36 overall. The over is 4-0 in Suns last 4 overall. The Rockets are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns are on the end of a back to back, and this could easily be a letdown spot with an opponent that doesn't strike much motivation. However, the Houston Rockets are absolutely dreadful, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 20.8 points and losing on the road by an average of 10.6 points. Te Rockets are also 22-33-1 against the spread on the season despite being big underdogs nightly. The line is massive and there's a chance for a backdoor cover, but I have no choice but to side with the Suns.
