Through 3 Quarters
Both the Toronto Raptors and the Houston Rockets have kept the scorekeepers busy with 198 between them three quarters in. It's looking more and more like Toronto's high-powered offense is just too much for Houston as the Raptors lead 106-92.
Shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. has led the way so far for Toronto, as he has shot 5-for-11 from downtown and has recorded 34 points, four dimes and four steals. One thing to keep an eye out for is Pascal Siakam's foul situation as he currently sits at five.
Houston has been relying on the performance of point guard Kevin Porter, who has 21 points and seven assists.
Houston has lost 92% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

Current Records: Toronto 30-23; Houston 15-39
What to Know
The Toronto Raptors might have tired legs after a matchup yesterday as they head on the road against the Houston Rockets at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 10 at Toyota Center. Toronto will be strutting in after a win while Houston will be stumbling in from a loss.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between the Raptors and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday was still a pretty decisive one as Toronto wrapped it up with a 117-98 victory on the road. Toronto's power forward Pascal Siakam did his thing and posted a double-double on 27 points and 16 rebounds along with five dimes.
Meanwhile, the game between Houston and the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday was not particularly close, with the Rockets falling 110-97. A silver lining for Houston was the play of point guard Kevin Porter, who shot 7-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 27 points and five assists.
Toronto is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a seven-game streak of ATS wins.
Houston's defeat took them down to 15-39 while Toronto's win pulled them up to 30-23. Allowing an average of 116.89 points per game, Houston hasn't exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We'll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
