Houston Rockets -4.5. Philadelphia first playoff game on Monday and the Rockets on Tuesday. Each team knows their opponent. 76ers will sit their rotation and dealing with injuries. They have lost three straight and have failed to cover five of seven in the bubble. In the Mike D’Antoni system the Rockets don’t believe in taking their foot off the pedal and it is important for them to stay in shooting rhythm and you can’t do that sitting players. Especially when you wont hit the court until Tuesday. He must keep his shooters sharp. For that reason, I expect James Harden and the rest of the rotation to play some significant minutes. Rockets don’t like resting, they like to play. D’Antoni also. Play Houston -4.5.
