Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Houston Rockets vs Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavs will welcome the Rockets to Quicken Loans Arena as they are coming off a loss against the Sixers while the Rockets are coming off a win against the Pistons. Game tips off at 7:30 PM ET.
Houston Rockets's Latest Performance :
The Rockets will be seeking their 7th win a row after taking down the Pistons in their last game. Ever since the Rockets waived Anthony out of the team they have reverted playing their old style of basketball two shooters waiting in the corner while they allow James to operate. James Harden is unguardable one on one so whenever he decides to attack he will draw two defenders leaving the player in the corner wide open. Despite losing their two shooters Ariza and Anderson to the Suns the Rockets are starting to find diamonds in the rough who can fill in and potentially be in the starting lineup. The Cavs shouldn’t be a problem for the Rockets in this game they are overmatched.
Cleveland Cavaliers's Latest Performance :
The Cavs will make their return to the Q after losing to the Sixers in their previous game. They are 2-6 at home on the season. The Cavs coming in knowingly that they won’t do well this season with LeBron James leaving to LA. The Cavs will have to use what they have now and hope that they get a high draft pick with the Zion being on top of their draft pick. Playing against the Rockets will be a challenge for the Cavs since they won’t have anyone that can contain Harden who has been playing really well as of late. The Cavaliers and veteran wing J.R. Smith have agreed to part ways. Smith, who publicly accused the Cavaliers of tanking, has wanted out of Cleveland for some time. All the Cavs can do now is embrace the rebuild because it seems like it won’t get better anytime soon.
