Houston Rockets – Los Angeles Clippers Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 13:05

Tobias Harris averages 22.5 points per game while playing 39 minutes per contest this year. He also averages 1 rebound per contest and 3 assists per game. Lou Williams averages 15.5 points per game this season and he sees the court an average of 25.5 minutes per contest. He grabs 10 rebounds per game and has 2.5 assists per contest on the year. His field goal percentage is 46% and his free throw percentage is at 64%. His field goal percentage is 36% and his free throw percentage is 92%.

LA has won five of their past eight games, but suffered a heavy 129-99 defeat against a motivated Dallas on Friday night. On Friday, Paul wasnt able to control the pace of the game and the bench wasnt able to step up at either end of the floor. Theyre also missing the absence of key bench scorer Jamal Crawford. Getting their leading scorer back in Griffin should help that equation.

SGs Eric Gordon and Danuel House followed with 19 points each while PF Kenneth Faried made 12 points and 11 boards off the rim, and SF PJ Tucker pitched in 13 for the Rockets. The Houston Rockets fly off towards The City of Angels to battle with the Clippers at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday evening.. Houston earned its third successive win after deposing of the Kings with a score of 130-105 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento Tuesday night. Houston had been moving the ball around that gave opportunities to players to convert them into the basket passing over 30 assists for the 4th time in the season. Harden had 36 points and 10 assists to help his team in sweeping the Kings in their 4-game series.

Thursday

The Rockets are still without Dwight Howard and after being carried through a stretch by MVP-candidate James Harden, Houston might just have started to miss Howards inside presence. They have just a 1 1/2 game advantage over the Clippers for the fourth seed in the Western conference and have now lost four of their last six. Sundays game concludes a four-game road trip that started with victory over Denver, but has since seen losses to Portland and Utah.

UPCOMING GAMES

Not buying it. The Houston Rockets just lost outright as 15 point favorites to the Los Angeles Lakers and enter this game with Chris Paul andCapela out. Won't win, but this is a lot of points. Not to mention this is obvious a revenge game, as I'm sure the Clippers still feel a way about CP3 leaving, and while he won't be playing, they still want to stick it to his new team. We know theLos Angeles Clippers have had their struggles this season and have played awful ball as well, but that doesn't mean they should be double-digit underdogs just because. That's two key players gone and the Rockets are still mnster favorites?

On Friday, Paul wasnt able to control the pace of the game and the bench wasnt able to step up at either end of the floor. Getting their leading scorer back in Griffin should help that equation. Theyre also missing the absence of key bench scorer Jamal Crawford. LA has won five of their past eight games, but suffered a heavy 129-99 defeat against a motivated Dallas on Friday night.
