Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Houston. As of Thursday afternoon, 81 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Rockets.

Injury Report: Rockets forward Trevor Ariza missed the last game with a groing straing and is qestionable for tonight. Chris Paul missed the last game with a groin injury and is questionable tonight. Eric Gordon left he last game with back stiffness and is questionable tonight. For the Spurs, Rudy Gay is out until late February with a heel injury. Kawhi Leonard is out indefinitely with a quadriceps injury.

Who the Trends Like: Houston is 4-1 ATS in its last five meetings in San Antonio. The over is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings in San Antonio and 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings overall.

Who We Like: With several other players out of the lineup with injuries, the Rockets saw James Harden compile a stat line for the ages in a 114-107 victory over the Magic. Harden became the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double in a 60-point performances. Harden will find the going tougher tonight against a slow-tempo, strong defensive team in the Spurs. If Paul is out of the lineup again, look for the Rockets offense to suffer some with Harden trying to do a bit too much. While the over has dominated this series lately, the formula is in place for an under here with the personnel that could be out for Houston or at the very least less than 100 percent.
