Houston wins first home game

The Rockets improved to 5-7 on the season and won their first home game after four previous defeats with a 115-103 victory over the Pacers Sunday night. James Harden had a huge game with a game-high 40 points on 9-of-20 shooting including 8-of-18 from 3-point range. He was also 14-of-15 at the free throw line. Harden had nine assists and seven rebounds to go with his point total. Chris Paul had 26 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Clint Capela tallied 18 points and seven boards. P.J. Tucker added 12 points and five rebounds. Houston led by one after the first quarter and then outscored Indiana 44-23 in the second to take a commanding 76-54 advantage into halftime.

Nuggets drop third straight

Denver fell to 9-4 after winning nine of its first 10 games with a 121-114 home loss to Milwaukee Sunday night. Paul Millsap paced the Nuggets with 25 points on 6-of-14 shooting including 5-of-8 from 3-point range and 8-of-11 at the free throw line. He had eight rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots. Nikola Jokic accounted for 20 points, six rebounds and six assists. Trey Lyles tallied 16 points and five rebounds off the bench. Gary Harris had 15 points, four caroms and three steals. Jamal Murray registered 14 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals. Malik Beasley added 10 points and four rebounds off the bench.

NBA Betting Trends


The Rockets are 0-5 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. The under is 4-0 in the last four Houston road games.


The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Denver.


Carmelo Anthony hasn't played in the last two games for the Rockets and it appears he might never suit up for Houston again. It has clearly been a poor fit and without him in the lineup, the Rockets had a strong offensive showing versus Indiana. While certainly not all the blame falls on Anthony, without him in the picture will free up more opportunities for Harden and Paul. With the Nuggets in a mini-slump, take Houston on a favorable line to keep it rolling for a second straight contest.
