Game Preview

The Miami Heat are hitting the road as they will travel to face off against the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center. These two teams haven’t played against each other this season just yet, and they’ve had a very different campaign, even though they are both heading into this match after scoring a win.
Miami is coming into this encounter after taking down the Indiana Pacers 87-82. They looked great defensively in the court, as they managed to contest shots near the rim and on the perimeter. That said, they will have to put up a similar performance during this game if they want to pick up another win against a Rockets team that is on the rise.
They are currently sitting in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings, as they are still 8.5 games behind the Boston Celtics, the team that is holding 1st. If we take a look at the Heat offense, they are scoring 107.9 PPG and are shooting 45% from the field. In the entire league, this is the least amount of points scored per match, and on top of that they are the 26th-highest team shooting percentage.
Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets are heading into this game after completely demolishing the Phoenix Suns 111-97 in an unexpected manner. They were impressive both defensively and offensively as they held the Suns to just 32% shooting from the field. They will have to maintain a solid defense if they want to challenge a Heat team that isn’t scoring that much.
Houston is currently holding 15th place in the Western Conference standings, as they trail the first-place Pelicans by nine games and are just one game away from being the worst team in the conference. Looking at their offense, they are one of the worst in the league, picking up 110.3 points per game and they are shooting a lowly 44.3% from the field, which is the lowest in the NBA.
