HOU vs POR DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Houston Rockets will be looking to end their three-game losing streak when they host Portland Trail Blazers in an NBA match at Toyota Arena, in Houston Texas, on Wednesday morning (IST).

Houston Rockets:

Whatever the reason for Houston Rockets’ remarkable downfall this season the team must produce collective efforts to dig themselves out of the current rut.

Last season’s hero, Chris Paul is looking like carrying some weight on his shoulders or it could be the pressure of coming good and give at least a helping hand to James Harden who is fighting as a lone warrior for his team. The reigning MVP is dropping insane enough numbers to put his team amongst the very best or at the top, but bereft of a consistent and genuine support, everything is falling into a chasm.

Rockets are coming into his match on the back of a three straight defeats, against Minnesota Timberwolves, Utah Jazz and Dallas Mavericks. No wonder, the team is on a 3- 7 run in the last 10 games.

Head coach Mike D’Antoni hasn’t been helped by the injury to key players at the most crucial of times with Carmelo Anthony’s name leading that pack.

Portland Trail Blazers:

The visitors have created a little bit of momentum for themselves ahead of this match after winning the last two games. Thanks to those two wins, the record in the last 10 games has improved to 4-6 and a 7th placed position at this moment.

Just like Rockets, Blazers do have their own problems of depending on one certain star, whose failing, more often than not, produces a negative result for the team.

Damian Lillard starred in the last two matches, scoring a combine 53 points against Phoenix Suns (25) and Minnesota Timberwolves (28) to help his team snap a three game losing streak.

In a conference as cruel and talented as West side of NBA, an early momentum could be decisive for teams aiming for playoff position, and thanks to a good start, Blazers have just that.

Regular Season Record-
Houston Rockets: W-11, L-14
Portland Trail Blazers: W-15, L-11

Players to watch out for:
Houston Rockets:
James Harden – There are some trends which never go out of fashion, and James Harden’s performance for his team engulf itself into that notion.

The reigning NBA MVP is dropping 30.0 points per game this season, making him team’s biggest scorer by some margins this season. He should be a star in your NBA fantasy team.
Clint Capela – Though Chris Paul has the ability to change the game, the former Los Angeles Clippers star is going through a purple patch at the moment. He is too inconsistent and that’s why we have gone with Clint Capela here. In the last 10 games, his average is 19.6 points per game.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard – The 28-year-old is having a good season, averaging 27.2 points per game. The Oakland born star is also spending almost 37 minutes on the court, most amongst his teammates.
CJ McCollum – The only other player in Portland’s roster to rack up more than 20 points per game this season is McCollum. Together with Lillard, he is team’s biggest star and a key to Blazers’ overall success this season.
