The Houston Rockets were taken over by new head coach Mike D’Antoni this season, and he had free reign to do what he wanted with the offense. Knowing that he had a superstar-type whom he could put in charge out on the floor, he did just that, letting James Harden go out there and create. Harden now leads the NBA in assists, with 11.3 per game, and he is doing a whole lot more for this squad, which checks in with a record of 44-19 straight-up and 36-27 against the basketball pointspread,

in advance of their game against the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs have big aspirations, as the Golden State Warriors, along with first place in the Western Conference are well within reach. San Antonio is just 2.5 games behind Golden State, and if they can overtake the defending conference champions, they will also have the NBA’s best record, which means home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The Spurs are 48-13 straight-up and 34-26-1 ATS. So as you can see, these are two “go-with” squads.

All of the games between these teams have been tight this season. On November 9, Houston came into San Antonio and came out of it with a 101-99 victory. Three nights later, San Antonio return the favor, going to the Toyota Center and beating Houston on its own floor 106-100. And in the last encounter, San Antonio once again pulled off a road win, beating Houston 102-100. In the process, they held the Rockets to just 27% in triples, so they did a very good defensive job, and you can also see that the road team is won all three of these games, which would seem to make the rockets a very live underdog.

Harden has a real MVP case this season. Not only is he the assist leader, he is also averaging 28.8 points, which places him third in scoring. He has taken more free-throw attempts than anyone, and has made the second-most three-pointers (behind two-time MVP Stephen Curry). Hard it is also the league’s Ironman, ranking first in minutes played, so you can make the argument that he means more to his team than anyone else (with apologies, possibly, to Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City).

BetAnySports patrons may want to take note of the fact that all three games between these teams have been pretty low-scoring, averaging less than 203 points. So there is a pretty good case to be made for the “under.” Furthermore, San Antonio has allowed only two of its last 14 opponents to reach 100 points, and they had been as successful as they have been by slowing the pace down, which is something Houston does not necessarily want to do. Any team coached by D’Antoni is going to look to turn up the tempo, but when you can make them play more deliberately, you take them out of their game plan. That is something the Spurs have very much in mind, and as of late, they have been tougher around the rim with center Dewayne Dedmon, who originally took Pau Gasol’s place in the lineup and has since stayed there. Dedmon has modest numbers, but his presence is valuable, because he can intimidate in the middle. Houston will undoubtedly try to play things from the outside, and have plenty of weaponry; not only with Harden, but with a very explosive guard combination off the bench in Lou Williams and Eric Gordon. This one will be a barnburner, for sure.
