Rockets @ Magic: Game Preview

(Photo Via Rockets Website)

The Rockets are heading into Orlando, Florida hoping to get pass the 6 game losing streak they are on.

Definitely some rough flashbacks for Houston as they had a similar start to the season last year, except the losing streak lasted for 15 straight games to start off 1-16

The Magic are coming off a heartbreaker at home in an overtime defeat thanks to the Sacramento Kings and the logo three from De'Aaron Fox for the win.

In the loss, first overall pick Paolo Banchero had 33 points and 16 rebounds, the magic also had Franz Wagner with 31 points, and Bol Bol with 23.

Houston will have a hard time stopping this scoring trio as they have allowed 117 PPG to opponents, 5th worst in the league.

Houston's had a tough schedule to start off the year, so this should be a game that should be capitalized on as Orlando isn't as competitive as the upcoming games.

I expect this game to be close and for the scorers to show out. So with that the Rockets spread and the over for tonight's game is one I'd bet on.
