Rockets vs Thunder Prediction
These teams have met twice already this season, splitting their games one apiece with the home side winning on both occasions.
The Rockets are on the rise, winning two straight games but still have the worst record in the league at 3-16. Houston are averaging 132 points in their back-to-back wins while shooting 52% from beyond the arc. They lead the league in free throw attempts but come dead last in accuracy, shooting 69% from the stripe.
The absence of Jalen Green could be a positive for the Rockets. Numbers show that the Rockets are better on offense and defense with Jalen Green off the court. Filling his shoes is Garrison Matthews. The G-League call up scored 20 points including 5-9 from deep in Houston’s overtime win against the Hornets.
With both teams ranked in the bottom six for shooting, rebounds could very much determine the winner. The Thunder have a huge rebounding edge over the Rockets. Oklahoma pull down a league-best 47.8 rebounds per game whilst Houston just crack into the top 20.
Oklahoma held Houston to 89 points on 35% shooting when they last played. The Thunder rank seventh this month in defensive rating and points allowed. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander back from injury and Lu Dort having scored 20 or more in seven straight games, the Thunder have what it takes on both ends of the court to cover the spread.
