HOU vs TOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Toronto Raptors will be aiming to return to winning ways when they host an in-form Houston Rockets in the regular season NBA match at Scotiabank Arena, in the South Core district of Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Nick Nurse decided to rest Kawhi Leonard for the umpteenth time this season and Toronto Raptors fell to Detroit Pistons 112-107 at Little Caesars Arena.
With the score tied at 100 points each after the end of the regulation time, Pistons were more tenacious in the overtime, scoring 12 points and kept Raptors to just 7 to win the match.
Kyle Lowry dropped a season-high 35 points, while Pascal Siakam came good once again as he dropped 21 points. Raptors remain 2nd in the Eastern Conference with 46-18 record.
Houston Rockets extended their winning streak to five games after beating an inconsistent Boston Celtics 104-115 at TD Garden. With the win, 5th placed Rockets cut the gap to just one game on 3rd placed Oklahoma City Thunder.
James Harden dropped a game-high 42 points, while Kyrie Irving had his team’s best efforts with 24 points. The Greens now have lost five of their last six games.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-46, L-18
Houston Rockets: W-38, L-25
Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard – The former San Antonio Spurs star is a candidate for the MVP this season. A two-way player, who scores not only points but he is a candidate for the NBA defensive player of the season. The 2014 NBA finals MVP is averaging 27.0 points per game. He is doubtful for this match though.
Pascal Siakam – He can take home the “Most improved player in NBA” award, without a shadow of any doubt. His numbers for this season are almost double of what he has managed in his career so far. The 24-year-old is racking up 16.3 points per game.
James Harden – The streak is gone but remains as destructive as he was at any point this season. In a sense, he should enjoy this freedom when he is no longer chasing Wilt Chamberlain’s untouchable looking record. It looked in the last match as he produced an all-round performance, scoring 42 points, and had 7 rebounds and had 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Clint Capela – He seems to be struggling to rediscover his form he was displaying before the injury. But no doubt, that the 24-year-old is an indispensable part for Houston Rockets. He is the 2nd best player for Houston and is averaging 16.8 points per game.
