The Rockets are off to a great start this season. Can it continue tonight vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers?
The Rockets (8-3) are hot and in second place early in the new season. The Cavaliers (5-6) are the exact opposite. Their defense has been non-existent and they have struggled to beat even the worst of teams at times. However, a team with LeBron James on it is always dangerous and the Rockets need to be careful.
Last game for Houston, James Harden dropped an incredible 56 points on 19/25 shooting. That efficiency was amazing and earned him Player of the Week honors. What does the Beard have in store tonight?
For the Cavs, they won a close one against the Bucks in Cleveland two nights ago. LeBron was his usual self, dropping 30 points, 8 rebounds & 9 assists.
Let’s look at the injury report:
Tristan Thompson remains out as well for the Cavs with a calf injury.
Luc Mbah a Moute is questionable for the Rockets but is expected to play.
Projected Starting 5
It will be a test for both teams as the Rockets look to stay hot and the Cavs look to turn it around. Dwyane Wade will play a huge role off the bench for the Cavs with Rose out tonight. For Houston, they need to find one more rotation player that will step up and take some minutes off the core 8. Will that be Bobby Brown?
The Rockets’ social media stirred some news this morning when they made fun of LeBron’s “Arthur” post. Hopefully, Bron-Bron doesn’t take that to heart.
