What to Know
The Houston Rockets are 6-2 against the Chicago Bulls since March of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. They will face off against one another at 8 p.m. ET at United Center. Houston is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 121.75 points per contest.
A well-balanced attack led Houston over the Golden State Warriors every single quarter on their way to victory. The Rockets captured a comfortable 129-112 win over Golden State. No one put up better numbers for Houston than SG James Harden, who really brought his A game. He dropped a double-double on 36 points and 13 dimes in addition to three blocks.
Meanwhile, Chicago took their matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday by a conclusive 113-93 score. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Chicago had established a 91-65 advantage.
The Rockets are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 2-6), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Their wins bumped the Rockets to 5-3 and the Bulls to 3-6. Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
