Who’s Playing

Houston @ Miami

Current Records: Houston 13-42; Miami 30-25

What to Know

The Houston Rockets have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Miami Heat and are hoping to record their first win since Nov. 27 of 2019. Houston will head out on the road to face off against Miami at 8 p.m. ET Friday at Miami-Dade Arena. The Heat will need to watch out since Houston has now posted big point totals in their last three contests.

Houston was close but no cigar on Wednesday as they fell 130-128 to the Sacramento Kings. Shooting guard Jalen Green put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 6-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 41 points.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Miami beat the Indiana Pacers 116-111 on Wednesday. Miami’s center Bam Adebayo did his thing and had 38 points in addition to nine boards.

The Rockets have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 10.5-point spread they are up against. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Houston’s opponents whenever they hit the road.

Miami’s victory lifted them to 30-25 while Houston’s defeat dropped them down to an irreparable 13-42. Allowing an average of 118.18 points per game, Houston hasn’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming matchup.
