Houston v Boston: who is better prepared?


29/07/2020, 00:00 GTM

Odds: 2


The match between Houston and Boston is a pretty attractive sign. However, one should not expect an ardent confrontation from them. After all, this is the preseason.


By the break, the “rockets” were fifth in the Western Conference, but there were chances to fight even for the second place, especially with such attack monsters as James Harden and Russell Westbrook, who, as time showed, found a common language on the floor.

Houston had two matches in the training camp, where they lost first to Toronto (83-94) and then showed class in the match against Memphis (119-104). Of course, it is difficult to assess the form of the team in such a short period of time, although the leader of the team, "Beard" Harden, is serious.

The Rockets will have their last preseason meeting against Boston, which will be a good rehearsal for the season restart.

“Celtics” has been holding the brand of one of the leaders of the Eastern Conference for several seasons and this championship was no exception. Brad Stevens's guys went on a break due to the pandemic on the third line and also managed to beat Indiana (114-111).

Boston, like Houston, started the preseason unsuccessfully, because they lost to Oklahoma (84-98), but managed to rehabilitate themselves in the second meeting against Phoenix (117-103). Jaylen Brown was one of the most active players in the Celts' squad with 21 points to his credit.

The team understands that the restart is ahead and the match against the Rockets can help to come up to it in good shape, so it is necessary to perform with dignity.


Of course, now there are many questions regarding the form of teams and in general for some, restarting the season can be beneficial, but for others, on the contrary, so you should expect surprises.

As for the fight, in our opinion, Houston will cope with Boston, since the club feels comfortable in personal fights, plus James Harden is gradually gaining momentum and is ready to crush the opponent's defense again, so we offer a bet on the Rockets' victory.

Our prediction is the victory of the Houston Rockets, taking into account OT, at odds of 2.00 in 1xBet.
