HOU vs MEM Dream11: The Houston Rockets will be playing hosts to the playoffs seeking Memphis Grizzlies at Toyota Center on Thursday morning (IST).
The Grizzlies are on a three-game losing streak and need to win to put the season back on track. Those three defeats came against Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers in the last match. The importance of this game is also highlighted by the fact that the Portland Trail Blazers are only two-and-a-half games away from them in the playoffs race.
Houston Rockets, on the other hand, have orchestrated a four-game winning run, beating the likes of Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz in that period. They have improved their regular-season record to 37-20 and sit fourth in the Western Conference rankings.
