PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Houston Rockets play their second tie away from home in as many days.
Only a day after playing against LA Clippers in the frontier league Houston Rockets return to the court as their games away from home continue. A testing and hectic period for the side sees them travel to Phoenix Suns for yet another tie which will test the pool of players at their disposal.
With the side having a 14-11 in clashes away from their home stadium, for Houston Rockets, this promises to be a tepid affair. Although their opponents are wilting with Phoenix Suns languishing in 12th spot, the Rockets laggard form in encounters away from home paired with the side having given it their all against the Clippers will make this a dicey encounter for them.
However, despite all the factors, Houston Rockets are still widely touted to win this one. Where they are on a three game winning spree, Phoenix Suns come into the contest having lost four successive outings with their most recent sortie seeing Detroit Pistons down them 116-108. It’s been a calamitous season for them with their 20-21 record all but meaning the end of the road for them in this edition of the league.
Phoenix Suns have massively struggled to string together meaningful attacking plays, a travesty which leave them in tatters today. Their drab attacking display will be the demise of the side with the Rockets mincing and lambasting them today, a tie where the visiting unit will walk all over Phoenix Suns.

PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Point Guard
Austin Rivers from Houston Rockets will be enshrined in our team as our point guard for this contest. The player has grown in statue with some titillating performances, cantering down the court with his ability to set up the ball for his counterparts seeing him up with a slew of layups.
Elsewhere, we have the one player being brought in from Phoenix Suns as well with Jevon Carter at a mere 4.5 credits offering sublime value to our side given the quick break points he’s capable of transitioning.
PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Shooting Guard
His side’s leading scorer with the 3.58 points per game, James Harden was always going to make way in our side for the affair. He’s not endured the best of times when playing away from home but in Phoenix Suns, he has a dreary defence, one he should be able to pull off a riveting display against.
We are also getting in the Suns’ top scorer for this affair here with the 26.7 ppg. If his side are to have any chance of winning today, Devin Booker will be asked to incur the flawless displays which have made him the mainstay of his side, a display he see him pulling off in this one.
PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Small Forward
Things are kept levelly balanced for us over here with the one player apiece finding his place in our framework for this one. Mikal Bridges’ illustrious and flamboyant displays have seen him drop a flurry of points for his side off late with the small forward providing his side with instrumental performances.
Meanwhile, the Rockets will be represented by Thabo Sefolosha to complete our two man ambit.
PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Power Forward
Robert Covington made for a straightforward choice in this facet. The dual toed player has not only come up pivotal performances while pulling off second chance points, free throws and conversion of treys but has also dropped points in the paint with ease to see us move in for the new entrant for Phoenix Suns.
PHX Vs HOU Dream11 Centre
With the 12 rpg, the Suns’ most sublime defensive player in the form of Deandre Ayton brings an end to our picks for the affair. The player has seen his scrimmages on the court yield deflections, steals, blocks and rebounds for him to make him an extremely cumbersome player to play against.
Booker will be our side’s star player today.
