HOU vs LAC DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Los Angeles Clippers host Houston Rockets in an NBA match at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, on Sunday.
Los Angeles Clippers:
With players like Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan all leaving the Clippers, the franchise is now looking to compete with new sets of players.
Danilo Gallinari and Tobias Harris have become the central figure for Clippers and both of them came good against Thunder as their team beat Russell-Westbrook-less Oklahoma City Thunder 108-92 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night. Both the aforementioned players scored 26 points each in the game.
Houston Rockets recovered from the chastening defeat in the season-opening game against New Orleans Pelicans with a 124-115 win against Los Angeles Lakers.
James Harden could be forgiven for starting the campaign still suffering from the hangover of the last season. The 2017-18 season was something special for the Mr. Beard as he broke many NBA records on his way to grab the coveted personal award i.e. NBA MVP.
