Houston enters playing having split its last 10 games and going 3-7 against the spread during that stretch. James Harden hit just 6-of-21 shots, 3-of-10 3-pointers and 10-of-14 free throws for 25 points, six rebounds, 13 assists and three steals in the Rockets' blowout win over the Magic on Tuesday.
