The clubs have played only one head-to-head match this season. Houston was stronger on his floor 118:108. Then the Rockets were still playing with the center in the composition. Later the organization concentrated on "pitches".
Unfortunately, Michael D'Antoni's wards have lost the last two meetings, so they clearly want to change this trend for the better. The head coach gave his leaders enough time to rest, so Russell Westbrook and James Harden should be on top in the elimination matches.
It is no secret that Houston adheres to an attacking style of play and acts spectacularly; the club is unlikely to abandon this strategy in the next game against Philadelphia.
Philadelphia have lost three matches in a row, while dropping to sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Of course, Brett Brown was not expecting such a turn of events, but without difficulties anywhere.
For the Sixers, the fight against Houston does not carry any weight, because the club has already qualified for the playoffs, where in the first series it will meet with Boston. It is worth waiting for a cut.
Our prediction is the victory of the Houston Rockets, taking into account OT, at odds of 1.57 in 1xBet
