The Houston Rockets will be facing the Heat in Miami tonight.

Although, the Rockets are probably the ones bringing the “heat” to Miami. The team record currently stands 39-13 and hold the 2nd spot in the Western Conference.

The last time Miami and Houston met, the Rockets limited them to 90 points. The Rockets are 18-2 when they hold their opponents under 100 points.

The Heat’s roster will look a bit different this time around. Goran Dragic will face the Rockets after missing the last matchup. Dragic leads the team in scoring (17.1) and assists (4.8). He is a big contributor to the Heat that was definitely missed last time.

Miami will hope to stop James Harden and Chris Paul from getting hot and have another great shooting night!

Injuries

For Miami, Kelly Olynyk is doubtful for tonight’s game with a shoulder injury. Wayne Ellington, who is suffering from a shoulder injury is questionable.  Justise Winslow is also questionable with an illness and he will be a game-time decision.

Miami is currently plagued with injuries as Dion Waiters, Rodney McGruder, and Okaro White are also out.

The Rockets, however, are rather healthy.

Eric Gordon is expected to play tonight despite dealing with back stiffness. Additionally, Ariza will be out with a hamstring injury. Again, Luc Mbah a Moute will be starting for Ariza.

Next: Rumor: The Houston Rockets are shopping Ryan Anderson

Ryan Anderson is also expected to be sidelined after suffering an ankle injury last night against the Nets. PJ Tucker is expected to start in Anderson’s absence.
