Who’s Playing

Houston @ Denver

Current Records: Houston 15-47; Denver 36-26

What to Know

The Houston Rockets haven’t won a matchup against the Denver Nuggets since Jan. 22 of 2020, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Friday. They will face off against one another at 9 p.m. ET at Ball Arena. Allowing an average of 117.98 points per game, the Rockets have been asleep on the defensive side of the ball and will need to wake up before the game.

Houston fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 132-127. Center Christian Wood put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 24 points and ten boards along with five assists.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Denver and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday was not particularly close, with Denver falling 119-107. This was hardly the result Denver or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 15.5 points over Oklahoma City heading into this contest. The Nuggets’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of center Nikola Jokic, who dropped a double-double on 22 points and 16 rebounds, and point guard Nah’Shon Hyland, who shot 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finished with 19 points. That makes it 12 consecutive games in which Jokic has had at least ten rebounds.

Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a victory. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
