New Orleans Pelicans vs Houston Rockets – NBA: The New Orleans Pelicans have a 26-21 record and they are in 6th place.
This has been a very good season for this team that was able to do great in terms of “trades”.
With the incredible strength that the Western Conference (it was already the strongest one but now they are even stronger) there were teams that improved a lot and the New Orleans’ team is a perfect example of that.
They ended up signing DeMarcus Cousins, who is one of the best centers in the league and will be an All-Star once again, who makes a super powerful duo along with Anthony Davis.
Without a doubt, this due is their biggest reference, but they still have some other helps. I should highlight Jrue Holiday, and they still have Rondo, that despite his inconsistency, is a valuable addition to any team.
The team has won 4 of their last 5 games and they are on a streak of 3 straight wins, beating the Grizzlies, the Bulls and the Hornets.
As for the Rockets, they have the 2nd best record of the Conference (34-12) and they have shown a lot of quality, especially now, with a “Big 3” formed by Chris Paul, James Harden and Capela, with the team being 18-0 when the 3 of them play.
I think that the arrival of Chris Paul was great, with him being a great addition to the team, and the biggest star of the team James Harden seems to be even better, maybe because he doesn’t have to carry so much weight.
The team is on a streak of 4 straight wins and besides that, those were some good wins, against the Timberwolves, the Warriors, the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks, with the first 3 teams being on the top 4 of their respective conference.
I think that the team from Houston only has to improve their defensive game a little bit, but I think they will even have some chances against the Golden State Warriors, in case they reach the play-offs’ final.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Houston Rockets – Betting Tip and Prediction:
We will have a match between 2 very good teams that play hyper-offensive basketball. On their last meeting, the score was 78-76 at half-time. \
All of this suggests that we will have a very fast-paced game, with the first half over probably being covered.
