Rockets Analysis: Their effort wasn’t enough in their last game’s loss

The Houston Rockets, who have dropped 6 of their past 9 games, are in poor form. They will be looking for a stronger showing after losing to the Clippers 122-116 on Wednesday. With a triple-double of 23 points, 19 rebounds, and 14 assists, Alperen Sengun topped the squad. Jabari Smith Jr. followed with 19 points, and Fred VanVleet contributed 15 points and 8 assists. The Rockets appeared to be in complete control as they led by 13 points at the half and shot 47% from the field and 16 of 37 from three. However, they were unable to sustain that intensity in the 2nd half and were defeated 78-59 in a dismal ending. After this game, the Rockets will play the Kings, Spurs, and Wizards.


Trail Blazers Analysis: They’ve lost 3 of last 5 matches

Given that they have defeated the Rockets in their last 4 meetings, the Trail Blazers will be looking to prevail. Earlier in the season, Chauncey Billups’ team prevailed in overtime in their first matchup. They will lead this 4-game regular season series 2-0 if they win again. The Blazers recently suffered a 128-120 setback to the Thunder at home. This was their 2nd straight loss, and both came against the top 2 clubs in the Western Conference. They have a 17-44 record, which ranks them sixth in the league for returners. Portland has had a difficult season due to injuries. For this game, Scoot Henderson, Jabari Walker, Jerami Grant, and Deandre Ayton are questionable.
