PHX vs HOU Dream11: Two teams heading in the different direction will face each other as Phoenix Suns entertain fellow Western Conference rivals Houston Rockets in the NBA 2019-20 regular-season at Talking Stick Resort Arena on Saturday morning (IST).
The Suns are on a four-game losing run following their 108-116 defeat against Detroit Pistons. That run, together with a couple of wins for the Memphis Grizzlies, has increased the gap between them and the playoff spots to six games. Phoenix know that the season is into the second half and more negative results could prove catastrophic.
Going into the different direction is Houston Rockets. Mike D’Antoni’s men climbed up to fourth in the Western Conference power rankings after beating the Los Angeles Lakers 121-111 at Staples Centre.
