HOU vs IND DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Houston Rockets must take a cue from the last season as they aim to return to their best when they host Indiana Pacers in an NBA match at Toyota Center, in Houston Texas, on Monday morning.
Houston Rockets had a golden opportunity to get one over the big team when they faced Oklahoma City Thunder in the last match. Russell Westbrook wasn’t the part of Thunder squad, and despite that, despite the likes of James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony all starting the match at Chesapeake Energy Arena, the result was a 98-80 loss for the Rockets. The loss snapped their three-game winning streak, which came on the back of four consecutive losses.
While Thunder took another route to the victory in the absence of Westbrook, Houston looked lost at times even with Harden on the court and were reduced to just 37.8 shooting from the field in the match. This has been the story of their season so far, too many weird plays and uncanny attempts from unconventional positions. Rockets are also struggling to put points on the board, the last match was the 5th time in the last seven games where they couldn’t go past the 100-point barrier.
Indiana Pacers won 110-102 against Miami Heat and improved their record to 8-5 for the regular season. The win was their fourth in the last six games, and now they sit at 4th in the Eastern Conference, only a game behind Milwaukee Bucks in the table.
Victor Oladipo had 22 points in the match, while Bojan Bogdanovic and Darren Collison dropped 16 and 17 points respectively in the match.
Regular Season Record-
Houston Rockets: W-4, L-6
Indiana Pacers: W-8, L-5
Players to watch out for:
James Harden – The reigning NBA MVP may not be hitting the heights of last season but his average of 26.6 remains better than the 23.0 career average. If you are looking for a star, he could shine the brightest.
Chris Paul – The former Los Angeles Clippers star is a pillar at Houston Rockets. The 33-year-old is averaging 16.9 points per game this season.
Indiana Pacers –
Victor Oladipo – Quite a season he is having. The 26-year-old is dropping 23.9 points per game this season. But it’s the contribution in other departments as well which could prove to be critical if you do make him your star player in this match as he is leading the steals and assists chart for this team.
Domantas Sabonis – Indiana Pacers’ 2nd best player is almost 10-points per game behind Oladipo at this moment. But Sabonis is also racking up 9-1 rebounds per game, making him a shrewd addition to your squad.
