The Houston team played on Friday and ended up picking up a massive win over Orlando by a score of 130-107. What is really impressive is the Magic do have one of the better defense’s in the league and it was completely picked apart. The win improved the Rockets to a 17-8 mark on the year and the Rockets are already sitting on a 9-3 record at home.

This year the Rockets have been an offensive powerhouse at 120.6 points a game. The defense is questionable at times with 114.6 points allowed per game. The rebounding for the Rockets has been done to the tune of 47.7 boards a game and 21.9 assist a game.

What else does not help the Spurs chances is the fact that the Rockets have one of the best offenses in the NBA that shredded a decent Magic defense. Look for the Rockets offense to carry the game and bring home the win. Final Score Prediction, Houston Rockets win and cover 125-111.
