HOU vs BKN Dream11 Match Prediction – Fantasy NBA | Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets | December 29, 2019

HOU vs BKN Dream11 Match Prediction

HOU vs BKN Dream11: Houston Rockets come into this game looking for a response to the chastening defeat against the undersize and injury-hit Golden State Warriors on the Boxing Day. That said, the Brooklyn Nets are also underperforming and are looking to get their back on track, so the visitors won't be lacking the motivation as well. So who will come out on top when Rockets host the Nets at Toyota Center on Sunday morning (IST).

Form and the recent results:

  • Houston Rockets‘ defeat came out of the blues for many reasons. The biggest of them all was the Warriors' form and the current roster they are carrying these days, being forced to play the G-League players due to injuries to both Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson.
  • Yet, the Rockets came out 2nd best against them, losing 116-104 at Chase Center, much to the delight of Curry and Thompson who were dancing on the touchline.
  • Rockets will think that the defeat was a one-off, but it also reveals that beyond James Harden and Russell Westbrook, the team lack offensive power.
  • Rockets remain fourth in the West with a 21-10 return on the season.
  • Brooklyn Nets have been blowing hot and cold of late. The 82-94 defeat at home was their fourth in the last seven games and 14th in the season. That's not a good return for a team looking to go for a tilt at the title.

James Allen fan. Want to inculcate the habit of Binge-Reading. Surely into football, kicked it for a while, and now beholding! Improvement is a sustained effort.
