The Line: Houston Rockets -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Brooklyn Nets head to Houston on Friday to square off against the Rockets.
The Houston Rockets are playing excellent ball right now as the Rockets are sitting at 11-5 on the year, and are just 2.5 back of the Spurs currently. The Rockets have an explosive offense, that is averaging 109 points per game on the year, but Houston has yet to get things figured out on the defensive end of things. The Rockets have won three out of their last four heading into Friday’s meeting with the Nets, with their last outing coming on Wednesday, where the Rockets hosted the Hawks, beating Atlanta 113-84.

The Brooklyn Nets are just 4-11 on the year so far, but the good thing is that the Atlantic division is a mess right now, and right now the Nets are just 2.5 back of the division leading Toronto Raptors. Brooklyn is just 1-3 in their last four games heading into their meeting with the Rockets, with their last game coming against the Lakers on Wednesday, where the Nets fell to Los Angeles, in Brooklyn 99-94. The Nets are averaging just 95.7 points per game on the year, and if Brooklyn looks to have a shot here against Houston, Brooklyn will need to step it up offensively to run with the Rockets.
The Brooklyn Nets are just 5-10 against the spread on the year, and when playing on the road, the Nets are just 3-6 against the spread this season. Brooklyn is also 2-3 against the spread when playing against a team with a winning record.
The Houston Rockets are 9-6 against the spread on the year, and when playing at home, the Rockets are 5-3 against the number. When the Rockets are coming off of a win of 10+ points, Houston is 3-3 against the spread this season.
