Houston have a lot of interesting performers
The Rockets entered the new season again with coach Stephen Silas and without much tournament promise. Nevertheless, one should not give up on the Texans. Houston looked good on offense at the end of last season, and they will likely continue to do so this season. John Wall will be gone, but Eric Gordon is ready, and Christian Wood has recovered. Also, it will be interesting to keep an eye on young talents such as Jae’Sean Tate, Usman Garuba, and Alperen Şengün.
Houston lost their opening game of the season, falling to Minnesota, 106-124. Wood was the top scorer with 16 points. Eric Gordon had 15 points.
Oklahoma are just a collection of players
No, sure, there’s the option of building a team around Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but that’s not the point. The Thunder’s set of performers is too heterogeneous indeed. And it’s unclear if Oklahoma manage to make the team this season. Even more so under not the most famous coach Mark Danault.
The first game of the 2021/22 championship confirmed not the highest level of the team. The Thunder lost on the road to Utah, 86-107. Shai scored 18. Darius Beasley had 15 points.
Expert Betting Tips
Right now, the Rockets certainly look like a much more solid team than the Thunder. The Texans have to win their first home game of the season. The good news is that to stop Okla, all they need to do is cut off the oxygen to Gilgeous-Alexander. Even for today’s Houston, that’s not a difficult task.
