The Houston Rockets are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers were really struggling for a stretch there as they had lost 10 games in a row, but they look to have moved on from that as they’re now aiming for a fourth straight win after outlasting the 76ers in a 112-109 overtime road win on Saturday. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.5 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 112.6 points on 48.1 percent shooting.

Prediction

The Cavaliers were in terrible form before winning their last two games and they would’ve taken so much confidence from their overtime win over the red-hot 76ers. So expect they will win with a narrow scoreline.

 

Handicap Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers +6.5
