HOU vs DEN Dream11: Houston Rockets will have another chance at snapping their losing skid when they host fellow conference rivals Denver Nuggets at Toyota Center on Thursday morning (IST). Rockets' problems have coincided with James Harden's own struggles, with his egregious shooting from the 3-point line getting all the unwanted attention from all factions of NBA. But there's no denying that Rockets could have done with more contribution from its rotation and the over-dependence on Russell Westbrook and James Harden is something Mike D'Antoni has to address.
Rockets are now on a four-game losing run, following a massive capitulation against Oklahoma City Thunder in the last game.
Denver Nuggets, on the other hands, arrive in this game with a positive result in the last match, having won 100-107 away at Minnesota Timberwolves. It was Nuggets' fourth win in five games and sixth in the last 8 games. They are now 3rd on the Western Conference table with 30-13 record, only a win away from the Los Angeles Clippers.
