Houston Rockets To Win series v San Antonio Spurs

Basketball - NBA Basketball - 02 May 02:10

I like Houston to spring a surprise against San Antonio on the series. These two sides faced 4 times this year. The last 3 of these were won by San Antonio, but the total was a combined 10 points. Three of these 4 games were decided by 2 points. This shows how close these teams are and how well they match up. San Antonio beat Memphis in 6 tough games, while Houston beat Oklahoma in 5, in a fairly comfortable series despite Wesbrooks best efforts. Houston has been improving as the post season has gone on, and their defence has improved, keeping Oklahoma to under 100 points in the most recent match-up. Houston play at a very high tempo, and I feel that this will cause San Antonio to have to pick up their play, which they aren't comfortable with. Houston averages115.3 points per game compared to 105.3 of San Antonio, and I feel that this could be the difference in the series, despite San Antonio's better defensive stats.

Houston and San Antonio have met up three times previously in the playoffs with Houston winning all of them, although the most recent was in 1995. Houston are a team that gets hot quick, and if they can light up and win one of the games in San Antonio, I can see them winning the series. Houston finished the season on 55-27, while San Antonio finished on 61-21, both teams finished 30-11 at home, which shows the ability of these sides, and how close the series could be.
