San Antonio Spurs vs Houston Rockets prediction

The San Antonio Spurs have these moments where they want to compete and can make things interesting, but it's not consistent. Victor Wembanyama is also questionable with a shoulder injury, which makes the Spurs a lot less attractive in the betting market. The Houston Rockets have won and covered 3 of the last 4 games against the Spurs, and have seen 20 of their 26 wins this season come at home. These are also games the Rockets need to take advantage of if they're going to going last second ground in the play-in tournament. Must win game for the Rockets. Decent sized line, but I'm going to side with the Rockets at home.
