The Houston Rockets hit the road for an NBA regular-season matchup against the Chicago Bulls at United Center. The Bulls come into this game after winning their last match against the Atlanta Hawks by the score of 93-113. Tomas Satoransky dropped a game-high 27 points and had seven rebounds and 8 assists. That was Bulls’ first win in three attempts. They will try to stretch the momentum with a win over Houston Rockets, which will snap their six-game losing streak against James Harden and Co.
Houston Rockets are fresh off of dismantling Golden State Warriors in the last game and put forth their offensive credentials once again. Though, Mike D’Antoni will demand more dispoline in the defensive department.
