Paul George is averaging 26.1 points and 8.1 rebounds while Russell Westbrook is averaging 20.1 points and 10.3 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Steven Adams is grabbing 10.2 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 70.3 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.7 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their last six road games.
The Houston Rockets look for another victory after winning six of their last seven games. The Houston Rockets are averaging 109.2 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 108.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting. James Harden is averaging 32 points and 8.4 assists while Clint Capela is averaging 17.1 points and 12.1 rebounds. Chris Paul is the third double-digit scorer and Eric Gordon is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.1 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.3 rebounds per game. The Houston Rockets have won their last six home games.
The Thunder are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Tuesday games. The Rockets are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the underdog is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 7-3 in Rockets last 10 overall. The under is 17-7 in Thunder last 24 road games.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have won three of the last four meetings against the Houston Rockets and have covered four of the last five. The problem is the Rockets are finally starting to play to their potential, winning six of their last seven games overall and six straight at home. Despite shooting just 42.8 percent from the field in their last five games, the Rockets are outscoring teams by 7.2 points. And even with CP3 out, we're seeing Harden and others do a better job of taking over games and play with that swagger that made them one of the top teams in the league a year ago. OKC can be a bit hit or miss and sloppy on the road. I trust the Rockets to get it done at home like they have a lot recently.
