Houston Rockets

Official meetings have taken place in 32 encounters: the home teams have 9 victories, while the guests have 23 victories. It is worth noting that the last meeting took place on March 15, 2024, where the hosts were the Houston Rockets, and the game ended with a score of 135:119.

Washington Wizards

"Washington" has lost four consecutive matches. Brian Keefe's team suffered a devastating defeat against "Boston" on March 18 at their home court with a score of 104:130. The top performer among the losers was Jordan Poole, who scored 31 points, made two rebounds, and four assists. Justin Champagnie added 14 points to his tally.

The "Wizards" (11 wins and 57 losses) dwell at the bottom of the standings and have already lost their chances of making it to the playoffs. Several key players and substitutes are sidelined due to injuries.

Houston Rockets

"Houston" has won its last five matches in a row. Ime Udoka's team secured a victory over "Cleveland" on March 17 at their home court with a score of 117:103. Jalen Green made the most significant contribution to the win, scoring 26 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and providing four assists. Jabari Smith contributed 20 points to the team's score. Additionally, Fred VanVleet recorded a double-double with 13 points, five rebounds, and 16 assists.

The "Rockets" (32 wins and 35 losses) hold the 11th position in the Western Conference standings. Houston traveled to the U.S. capital with a strong roster.

Prediction

"Houston" is making a last-ditch effort to secure a spot in the play-in tournament. They need to climb at least one spot in the standings before the end of the regular season. On the other hand, "Washington" is simply playing out the remainder of the championship. The "Rockets" will have to achieve victory against a demotivated and injury-plagued opponent.

Our prediction — Houston to win with a handicap (-6.5) points including overtime at 1.75.

"Washington" and "Houston" have shown relatively low scoring in their head-to-head matches. In the last three out of four games, the total score did not exceed 220 points. It seems that both teams will focus more on defense this time and won't be able to provide spectators with an entertaining game.

Our prediction — total under 225.5 points including overtime at 2.02.
