Looking to turn around some poor form from the last couple of days with a good NBA performance tonight.
NY Knicks v DEN Nuggets – Over 200 points @ 1.67 (Bet365) – 3 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
HOU Rockets -3.5 to beat OKC Thunder @ 1.80 (Pinnacle) – 3 points
The Houston Rockets have been dominating most of their teams so far this campaign, and that has resulted in a cracking 8-1 start by them early on. They have defeated teams by an average of 10 points, and that now owing to a strong offensive start, but rather an improvement in their defensive abilities where they have become the 2nd Best in the NBA in points allowed by opponents at 91 average. They are also keeping opponent field goals to under 42% which is top in the NBA.
Other than that James Harden, Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza are playing like the new big 3 for the Houston Rockets, which they will hope will translate into a serious playoff push later on.
OKC are still struggling with injuries and as a result their 3-7 this campaign, when they should have been much better than that this campaign. Durant, Jones, Westbrook, Jerett and Roberson are still all out with injuries. The Thunder have purely relied on Jackson, Lamb and Ibaka to provide the points; but they have lost to a lowly Detroit last time around, which can’t be good for confidence when you have one of the NBA’s best teams coming to face you in your building.
Rockets should win this and cover the spread, but I don’t expect it will be easy for them.
