HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Tottering Houston Rockets face yet another dicey challenge as they look to stabilise their stumbling form.
Conceding two defeats on the bounce, for Houston Rockets, the past week hasn’t been the most ideal in the marquee league. They have faltered at the wrong time, slumping in form right before the NBA takes a break from the regular season, form they’ll be looking to address at the earliest plausible.
While there is not massive cause of concern to see the alarms go off in the side, the recent set of events are bound to have taken the side aback. From being thumped unceremoniously by Phoenix Suns to lacking composure in their 114-113 defeat to Utah Jazz, the issues are ever widening, ones the club will like to plug immediately.
And they will be well aware that a failure to put a break on their perplexing issues could well lead to their demise today as well. In Eastern Conference’s third placed Boston Celtics, they are taken on a ruthless and relentless outfit, one which will be quick to feed off any slipups the Rockets commit on the day.
While the Rockets are set to hit back hard infront of their vociferous home supporters, unfortunately for them, Boston coming calling at the wrong time. On a seven game winning spree, Boston are torching their way past oppositions and Houston will be the latest side to be put down by them given the side’s plight in defence.

HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Point Guard
Registering the 5 assists per game this season, Kemba Walker from Boston Celtics becomes an instant pick for us for this fixture. The point guard has been electric this season, one of the main reasons for his side tasting such consummate success this season owing to his ability to control the centre of the court.
He’s going to be accompanied by Brad Wanamaker, a player who has stepped up to the mantle recently with his scrimmages on the court translating to quick turnovers for his outfit. On the other hand, Houston Rockets find representation as well over here with Austin Rivers being indulged in by us.
HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Shooting Guard
His side’s top scorer with a staggering 35.2 ppg and the 7.2 apg to go with them, James Harden was always going to be picked up by us. If Houston have any chance of coming out unblemished from the clash, the shooting guard will need to send down a slew of treys, something we envision him pulling off.
HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Small Forward
The 22.2 ppg for him see us move in for Boston Celtics’ leading scorer, Jayson Tatum for the forthcoming clash. The player’s radiant quality has spurred his side in their attacking gameplan with his high conversion rate in free throws and triples being quissential to the side’s fortunes.
We have the one player being roped into our side from the opposition as well meanwhile with Thabo Sefolosha coming in owing to his alley-oops.
HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Power Forward
Robert Covington from Houston Rockets is being enshrined in our framework for the imminent clash. The player has played a pivotal role in his side’s defence at a time when the rest of the unit has faltered with his deflections, rebounds, steals and ability to screen players making him a sublime option.
HOU Vs BOS Dream11 Centre
P.J. Tucker from Houston Rockets bring an end to our set of picks for this encounter owing to the centre’s ability to canter his way in both the paints, making him capable of not only sending down reverse scoops but coming up with pivotal blocks and guards as well.
Taytum will be our star player for today owing to his ability to open the zone and send down triples.
