The Los Angeles Clippers continue to have issues scoring the basketball, and they’re still without their best player in Kawhi Leonard. The Houston Rockets have issues of their own, but they have athleticism and scoring on this roster, and they just took the Clippers down to the wire on Halloween. At home, the Rockets will have their chances to steal this game against an undermanned Clippers side. Give me the points.
