OUR PREDICTION: Neither of these teams play much defense. The Rockets rank 19th in defensive efficiency while the Nets rank 29th, with only the Lakers playing worse defense at the moment. But Houston can also score, ranking fourth in the league in offensive efficiency, so look for the Rockets to pour it on tonight.

The over has also hit in six of the Nets' last seven road games.
