Game Preview


The Houston Rockets will welcome the Charlotte Hornets for an inter-conference showdown this Wednesday night. Both teams are coming off of losing streaks so this will be an interesting game to watch.


The Houston Rockets come into this game having lost a five-game road trip and racking up eleven consecutive losses with the most recent being against the Lakers, where they fell 140-132 despite the efforts of Alperen Sengun who scored 33 points and 15 rebounds.


This was Sengun’s best game of the season and he is showing steady improvement but unfortunately it was not enough. The Rockets are not playing well at all on both ends of the court, scoring an average of only 109 points per game and allowing another 117.


On the other hand, the Charlotte Hornets have to go on the road, which could be a good thing as they look to end their losing streak. Their most recent loss was to the Celtics last weekend where they fell 122-106. They have had a very bad season and have not only underperformed but have had to deal with a lot of injuries.

Although we must highlight LaMelo Ball who has shown improvement registering at least 24 points in four consecutive games. The 21-year-old point guard has increased his season average to 24 PPG. Terry Rozier reached 20 points in all but two games this month. Unfortunately Kelly Oubre Jr. is still out and we won’t be able to see him in this game.


The Charlotte Hornets are having a very bad moment but let’s be honest, the Rockets are the worst team in the league in the last month with a terrible defense. At the very least the Hornets are scoring points so betting against them could be a bad move.
