The Houston Rockets are locking horns with the Denver Nuggets, once again, on Wednesday, giving us a matchup between two Western Conference teams headed in two different directions. Denver managed to pick up the win in the first game, defeating Houston 129-113. The Nuggets, being 13-7 this season, are 4-1 in their past five. On the other hand, the Rockets are 5-15 and 2-3 in their past five.
That said, the Rockets have been looking better and better as of late, with important victories over Dallas, Atlanta, and Oklahoma City. Before those wins, Houston had won just two of their matches in its first fourteen games. Ultimately, even with those victories, the Houston Rockets are spiraling toward a high lottery selection in the 2023 NBA draft.
So far into the season, Houston is surrendering 116.4 points per game on defense on 47.9 shooting from the floor. Their opponents are attacking the glass too, averaging 42.3 rebounds per game, which is the tenth-most rebounds allowed per contest. The Rockets’ offensive rating is 23rd, while their defensive rating is 27th when adjusted for strength of schedule.
On the other hand, the Denver Nuggets have been knocking on the door of the NBA Finals in recent seasons, but still haven’t broken through. Denver is playing great team basketball this season and holding second place in the Western Conference. Back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic has been the star for this team, nearly averaging a triple-double, while ranking first in player-efficiency rating.
This team is on a mission to win as many encounters as they can, ensuring better matchups in the earlier stages of the NBA playoffs. This year is no different than recent ones whatsoever, managing injuries to several important players. While they may be down a few bodies against the Rockets, the Denver Nuggets head into this game as the favorite team.
