Brooklyn Nets host Houston Rockets in a matchup between the two Western Conference teams. This is going to be a fascinating battle at Barclays Center considering both Nets and Rockets are two of the highest-scoring teams in NBA this season.
Kevin Durant may be missing from the team’s roster but that hasn’t stopped the team from entering back into the contention for the top spots in the West. That said, Nets have lost three times in the first four games, with the last one coming at home, a 108-118 defeat at the hands of Indiana Pacers.
Even after a negative record, Nets are averaging 120 points per game this season, which is the third-best record across both the conferences.
Houston Rockets, meanwhile, are averaging a season-high 128 points per game. Their defence has been the main problem but the games involving them have been spectacle so fans are not complaining.
Their last match was a nail-biting fixture in which Rockest just about managed to get the better of Washington wizards on the road, beating them 158-159 for their third consecutive win of the season.
