The Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets will meet for the first time this season on Monday night. Houston is 11-11 in the season, but they face a Hornets team that exceeded expectations to sit 11-13.
Despite winning against Washington on Sunday, Charlotte is after losing to the Sixers and Jazz so far 1: 2 on this home game.
Houston is without center Christian Wood (ankle). Charlotte could see Devonte ’Graham (groin) fail again. Houston is closely preferred for this one.
The Houston Rockets have been the best defense in the NBA since treating James Harden. Houston’s defensive rankings have been number one for the last 10 games. You face a Charlotte team that leads the league in assists. The Hornets are eighth in the NBA offensive rating over their last five. While not being led by a well-known star, the Hornets have a lot of offensive talent and share the ball as well as every team in the league.
Eight Hornets score 9.5 or more points per game. Seven hornets register at least 2.1 templates per game. James Borrego has built an offensive without selfish play, an offensive that makes the extra pass and takes advantage of the amount of shots on the roster without throwing reckless threesomes. You are ninth in three-point marks, but only thirteenth in three-point attempts.
However, with such a ball movement comes sales. They’re only 17th in sales per game, and this is going to be an area the Rockets are focused on – Houston ranks fifth in the NBA in stealing over the past 10. The Rockets did a good job of keeping the three in too To defend that span of time and take the lead in the opponent’s perimeter shooting percentage (32.2%).
Houston lost two of three after winning six in a row. Christian Wood’s injury weakened them considerably, but they also took some clever cold shots from their starters. Victor Oladipo, Demarcus Cousins, P. J. Tucker and Jae’Sean Tate all separated from the field for 10:35 in the Spurs defeat. In the loss to Oklahoma City, the team scored less than 40% of their field goals.
These games will happen. This is a collection of players with a point to prove, but it’s also a multi-player team looking for consistency. It’s been a long time since Wall, Oladipo, Eric Gordon, and Cousins put together an extended period of productive accomplishments. There will be peaks and valleys as everyone tries to get anywhere near their peaks again.
How they shoot the ball will be interesting against Charlotte. The Hornets are in the last three points and in the last ten points in the last three points in the league.
Charlotte is in the abandoned transition points at the end of the league. Houston is in the top five in pace, but in 22nd place in transition offensive efficiency – this will be a big part of Monday’s game.
Houston hit over three out of five with a calm advantage. Charlotte is 4-2 for the grand total with a residual disadvantage. Small samples, of course, but the extra rest should work in Houston’s favor. It’s a bit of a surprise to see them only as a two-point favorite at FanDuel, even after the Hornets blew up Washington on Sunday.
The missiles are powered to get out and run. Against a Charlotte team that has been struggling on the defensive lately, the Rockets should be able to come up with big numbers. LaMelo Ball’s place on the grid has weakened them defensively – both Oladipo and Wall will leave the ball whenever the opportunity presents itself.
This should be played at a good pace. Even with the high defensive standards in Houston lately, the scores are worth it, and the Rockets look like a good choice given their extra rest.
