The Boston Celtics (28-10) will host the Houston Rockets (25-7) at the TD Garden on Thursday evening (Friday AEDT). The Celtics and Rockets are viewed as legitimate threats to upset the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, respectively, during next year’s NBA Playoffs.
The Rockets have slumped to a three-game losing streak which began with a defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers last week. The losing streak began after James Harden & Co. went on a 14-game winning streak. Houston will be without star centre Clint Capela, who fractured his right orbital bone during the Christmas Day loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“Obviously, Clint has been in and out of the line-up, Luc (Mbah a Moute) as well), so you take guys that are versatile that create opportunities defensively that we’re missing. But we’ll be all right. It’s a grind period right now — dropped three in a row — but it’s a long season,” Harden said on the eve of the game in Boston.
The Houston Rockets (25-7) will try to end a three-game losing streak Thursday when they visit the Boston Celtics (28-10). The Rockets had won 14 in a row prior to their skid, and hope to have guard Chris Paul (leg) back in the lineup after missing the last two games.
As the Rockets look to be getting Chris Paul back at some point during this back-to-back against the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards, the team learned that they would be missing Clint Capela for at least both of those games with an orbital fracture. Of course, the team is still missing Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
With Houston missing at least two key cogs, we can expect the next few games to play out like the last few for Houston: competitive but ultimately futile due to a lack of depth. Briante Weber has gotten some burn recently and shown flashes, but isn’t anywhere close to contributing to a contending team.
