HOU vs MEM Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Houston Rockets will look to keep their good run going when they host a struggling Memphis Grizzlies in an NBA game at Toyota Center, in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday morning (IST).

The Rockets suffered a shock last time around, on the back of some terrible shooting which allowed Orlando Magic to steal an improbable win.

Houston, though, made a strong start to the game, winning the first quarter 26-18. The three quarters went to Magic who improved after the break, scoring 64 points against Rockets’ 50.

Regular Season Record-
Houston Rockets: W-24, L-18
Memphis Grizzlies: W-19, L-23

 

Players to watch out for:

Houston Rockets:
James Harden – We all should think of ourselves as lucky as we are perhaps witnessing an incredible journey of  a player. James Harden is once in a generation kind of player. He is breaking records, banging in insane numbers with an aplomb. At the moment, there is no player who can stop him from winning yet another NBA MVP. He is also the only player this season to average in the 30s, 34.7 points per game.
Clint Capela – The next best player for Houston Rockets is Clint Capela. The 24-year-old is having a very good season by his own standards, averaging 17.6 per game. But the points are not a good reflection of his contribution as he does a good defensive Johnson the court.

 

Memphis Grizzlies:
Mike Conley – The only player in Memphis Grizzlies’ rank to average in the 20s, Mike Conley has stood out for his team this season. The 30-year-old can erupt with big numbers in any match.

Marc Gasol – The brother of legendary Los Angeles Lakers player Pau Gasol, Marc is coming into this own this season. This is his best season and he is performing at a consistent level on a  more regular basis. The 33-year-old is averaging 15.7 points per game and is racking up 8.6 rebounds per game as well.

 

HOU vs MEM Dream11 TEAM NEWS:

Memphis Grizzlies:

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Well, it’s hard to stop James Harden when he is so focused. He is more than deadly and there is nothing he can’t do with the big spherical ball in his hands. Mr Beard is the gasoline which is driving Houston Rockets at this moment.

A Rockets Win our call.

  • Hi Anurag,
    I understand you analysis but disagree. The Rockets are ridding their "prime horses" too much. Harden may be the MVP (maybe too soon to tell, but let's assume that; it's legit) but they don't have nay alternatives. No, I don't think Rivers is enough. The team depends too much on Harden moves, and if he fails, no one seems to be able to support that. One can argue: "ok, but they shoot 3's easily". Well, yes and no. I personally prefer a team that goes for a "sure" 2-point than one that keeps shooting 3 (and failing). Also: there is no alternative to Capella: Nene doesn't play enough time, and that's another "tired horse" (now injured). Imagine Harden is missing: what happens? Okay this team started with CP3 but they rely too much on the G movements. They don't defend as a champion team (look at Toronto or the Bucks - don't even talk about OKC or the Warriors). Don't get me wrong, I personally love the Rockets, but when they fail they fail big.

    Therefore, tonights prediction: Memphis to win.

    PS: Vucevic would be perfect for this team.
