We couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2020 in NBA 2019-20 with a slew of vibrant and exhilarating inter-conference ties being served upto the mantle for us. And the intriguing games keep coming our way as East and West continue to meet paths with Houston Rockets and Philadelphia going at loggerheads today.
Currently in fifth spot in the Eastern Conference, for Philadelphia, the season has hit a rock at the wrong time. The side have gone onto lose three games in a row with their most recent defeat against Indiana Pacers seeing them lose massive ground in their aspirations of challenging for a spot in the pinnacles of the points tally.
And things are bound to get only trickier for them when they go to Houston today to play the fourth placed Western Conference side. They are up against a side who have lost only the 4 times in 16 encounters at home, a team whose bastion has been extremely difficult to breach by sides. And having pulled off an incredible heist as they stunned Houston Rockets 130-104.
With the Rockets pulling off a sensational result, one which could end up being a defining moment for the side this term and with Philadelphia losing their belongings at the wrong time, there is one clear winner from this. This looks set to be a foregone conclusion, an outing where the Rockets should end up cruising their way to a win on the day.
