The Houston Rockets will visit the Toronto Raptors for a Tuesday night Clash.
The Rockets are coming off a road win against the Celtics, whereas the Pistons defeated the Raptors in overtime on Sunday.
Let us dive deep into how things stand for them ahead of the clash.
The Rockets have been in a great form lately and will be looking to win their 6th straight game tonight. They paid a visit to the Graden on Sunday and defeated the Boston Celtics.
James Harden has been exceptional this season and led the way with 42 points on the night. The highlight, however, was Eric Gordon’s 32 points performance which included eight 3-pointers. He will be an essential factor tonight also. The Rockets shot well from the field and drained 21 three-pointers on the night.
They are currently sitting at 5th place in the West, not far away from the Blazers and Thunder. They will be aiming to upset the Raptors tonight.
The Raptors have not been the same team as they were during the start o the season but still have been pulling off close wins.
They lost to the Pistons in overtime on Sunday. Kawhi Leonard missed the game, but in his absence, Kyle Lowry led the team with 35 points which included six three-pointers. Pascal Siakam supported him well with 21 points and nine rebounds. They shot horribly from the field and missed the presence of Kawhi Leonard.
The Raptors will be willing to bounce back with a win at home against a strong Rockets’ side.
Predicted Starting Lineups:
Rockets: James Harden, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon, Clint Capela and Chris Paul.
Raptors: Pascal Siakam, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Marc Gasol and Kyle Lowry.
This will be a contest to watch! The Rockets defeated the Raptors this season in January. So they will be confident to do it again considering the fact their form has been on the rise.
The Raptors, however, are at home, will look to take revenge and Kawhi will be back which further helps them.
Raptors will beat the Rockets tonight!
