The Rockets evened up the series on Sunday with a 125-104 win over the Spurs in Houston. The winning team has covered the spread in all four victories. Houston is 61-30 overall, 27-18 on the road and 47-44 against the spread. San Antonio is 67-25 overall, 35-11 at home and 47-43-2 against the spread.

Houston got back to being the offense we’ve all grown accustomed to. The Rockets were 50-of-95 from the floor and 19-of-43 from 3-point land in the victory. The team had 28 assists on the 50 field goals. James Harden had 28 points and 12 assists to lead the team while Eric Gordon added 22 points off the bench. San Antonio shot pretty well, going 44-of-89 from the field, but the Spurs were just 9-of-18 at the line. Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge each had 16 points to lead the team.

Bet on Rockets vs. Spurs

Both teams have now lost a key piece .Tony Parker is out with his quad injury while Nene is out with a groin injury for Houston. The Rockets made some good adjustments for Game 4 and hit some shots at home. Now I see the Spurs returning the favor with some good adjustments for Game 5. San Antonio isn’t likely to get lit up two straight games, especially returning home. Houston has failed to cover in their last 5 games following a double-digit win.
