Houston Rockets vs San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs will welcome their Texas rival Rockets to AT&T Center the Spurs are coming off a loss against the Heat while the Rockets are coming off a blowout loss against the Thunder. Game tips off at 8:30 PM ET.
Houston Rockets's Latest Performance :
The Rockets are coming off a loss against the Thunder it should have been a game that the Rockets let slip away because the Thunder were playing without Westbrook. Houston shot just 37.8 percent from the floor and struggled all night long. The team’s three leading scorers, James Harden, Chris Paul, and Carmelo Anthony, combined for just 31 points on 12-41 shooting. Anthony had the worst shooting night as a Rockets he finished game shooting 1-for-11. He did not make a single shot in the entire ballgame. He’d been hot over the last six games, averaging over 17 points per game, but tonight was a really bad outlier. They have a good team on paper it seems like they were taking steps forward, it seems that they have taken two steps back. The Rockets will hope that they can end this road trip on a positive note with a win against the Spurs but first, they will have to erase this bad shooting performance and focus on this game.
San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs are coming off a lost against the Heat they had no answer for Whiteside in their last game. Coach Popovich called his team soft after the last game they have now dropped two games in a row making their overall record 6-4 to start the season. The Spurs shot only 33.3 percent from the field, despite going 13 of 32 from 3-point range (41.9 percent). The Spurs are hoping they can bounce back after at home after a bad road game. LaMarcus Aldridge was held to six points on 2-of-14 shooting. DeMar DeRozan scored 18 on 6 of 15 from the floor. Aldridge had 16 rebounds and DeRozan had 14. Mills was only the bright spot on the team as he scored 20 points with four rebounds and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes. Playing against the Rockets we will be able to see DeMar matched up with Harden as the two will battle it out in this game.

The Spurs team basketball will get the better of the Rockets stars in this game. It is quite worrying for the Rockets they weren’t able to come up with a win against the Thunder who was playing without Russell Westbrook.
