Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Rockets are coming off a 119-95 victory at Memphis but are just 3-4 over their last seven games overall. James Harden scored 29 points with 10 assists, six rebounds, three steals, two blocks and four 3-poiners in the Saturday victory over the Grizzlies. Clint Capela also came off the bench and had five points, four rebounds, two assists and one block in just 16 minutes of play.

The Bucks have now lost five consecutive games following their 109-97 loss at Miami. Granted, four of those five losses came on the road but the Bucks also fell 113-104 to the 76ers at home so Milwaukee isn't playing well, period. In the loss to the Heat, Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
