In the great state of Texas, two heavyweights collide as neighbouring teams in Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs will be playing a game in the regular season in the NBA on Saturday. Houston Rockets are the runner’s of the Western Conference last season and have recovered from a tumbling start this year. They are down a few players as well, and that caused them to have some problems in the defensive department. The team is still excellent offensively, and if injuries no longer trouble them from this point forth, it will be a shock to see them once again in the playoffs.
Similarly, San Antonio Spurs are doing just enough recently to be in the playoff spot. The team is known to be a side who never back down regardless of what happens, and coach Gregg Popovich will be using this plethora of experience to make sure that his players keep the same energy up. He needs them to be fearless on the court and maintain this form.
Match Timing: December 23, 2018, @ 3:30 AM IST
Venue – Toyota Center, Houston
