HOU Vs DEN Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Houston Rockets face an extremely treacherous task in an appalling period for the club.
On a four game losing spree at the moment, Denver nuggets would have been one of the last sides Houston Rockets would have wanted to see the face off come today. At a time when nothing is going right for the Rockets, in Denver they find themselves paired against an extremely ominous opposition, a side who will be looking to capitalise on their catapultation.
Defeated 112-107 by Oklahoma City Thunder in their most recent outing in the league, Houston Rockets find themselves having hit a rock at the moment. Dreary and lacklustre at the moment, their callous showings have resulted in an apathy for the side with the unit slumping down to 5the courtesy of a horrific start to 2020.
And in second placed Denver Nuggets, they are taking on an extremely staunch side, a unit which looks set to make thing even more cumbersome for them. The 107-107 over Minnesota the last time around was Denver’s fourth win in five games, a spree which has seen them consolidate on the coveted second position at the moment in the Western Conference.
Although Houston Rockets will fare off better infront of their ardent supporters, Denver Nuggets are just too formidable an opposition. This is going to be yet another encounter Houston end up losing with Denver’s attacking unit pummelling them continuously.

The fulcrum of his side, Nikola Jokic has been prevelant everywhere for his. His number are an epitomise of that gripping narrative with his electric 19.4 ppg, 6.3 apg and the 10 rpg to go with them alluding that rhetoric.
