NBA Basketball: Friday
The Line: TBA See the Latest Odds
The Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs play their final 2014 preseason NBA Basketball game as they meet at the Toyota Center.
The Houston Rockets are 5-2 this preseason but they have their sights set on much bigger things in the regular season. The Rockets are coming off of a one-point win in Orolando edging the Magic. Troy Daniels played a team high 34 minutes in the loss and scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds and Isaiah Canaan had 14 points. James Harden played just 18 minutes and scored nine points and Tarik Black had 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Houston shot just 36.5 percent from the floor and 26.5 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. Houston sat eight players and played 13 and it will surely be a conservative look here.

The San Antonio Spurs just didn’t have a lot to work on this preseason and it was more about preserving their veteran team and they have played like it going just 2-4. The Spurs are coming off of a 10 point loss to the Hawks as they were pounded in the third quarter. Tim Duncan played just 13 minutes in the loss scoring six points and grabbing seven rebounds and Tony Parker scored 17 points and had seven assists in 27 minutes of action. Cory Joseph scored 14 points and Boris Diaw had 12 points. The Spurs shot 53.2 percent but allowed the Hawks to shoot 51.9 percent as neither team seemed overly concerned about playing defense. I am sure we will see a a different effort from the Spurs next week.
Houston is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games and 4-0 against the spread when their opponent scores more than 100 points in their previous game. San Antonio is 4-0 against the spread playing on one days rest and 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games. San Antonio is 0-6 against the spread in their last six games against Houston.
