Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ Houston

Current Records: Phoenix 8-3; Houston 1-11

What to Know

The Houston Rockets haven’t won a matchup against the Phoenix Suns since Dec. 21 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Sunday. The Rockets’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on Phoenix at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Toyota Center. Phoenix will be strutting in after a win while Houston will be stumbling in from a loss.

Houston ended up a good deal behind the Portland Trail Blazers when they played this past Friday, losing 104-92. The top scorer for Houston was point guard Kevin Porter (18 points).

Meanwhile, the Suns made easy work of the Memphis Grizzlies this past Friday and carried off a 119-94 victory. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 62-43. Phoenix’s point guard Chris Paul did his thing and dropped a double-double on 15 points and 12 dimes in addition to five steals.

The Rockets are expected to lose this next one by 8.5. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in four of their five home games.

In the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, Houston lost to Phoenix on the road by a decisive 123-111 margin. Maybe Houston will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
