Houston vs San Antonio: prediction for the NBA match
Rockets got advantage out of Oklahoma's problems and catched up to them in the standings, but team is still at the bottom of the Western Conference. It is safe to say that this season is over for the club, so now they just need to try to strengthen the squad in the off-season and to wait for the next season to start.
Houston's performance improved recently, but it counts only for away matches. Team is unsuccessful at home matches, Stephen Silas' men suffered eight consecutive defeats at Toyota Center. Now team is approaching the match against San Antonio and we are expecting an interesting game.
San Antonio Spurs
Spurs are still trying to break into the play-in zone. So far team is not so successful, so they dropped to the bottom half of the Western Conference standings.
San Antonio lost two matches in a row, they were beaten by Brooklyn (102:117) and failed to put up a fight to Philadelphia (109:115). Gregg Popovich's men will now try to secure a positive result in the match against Houston, but it will surely be a contested match. Overall, Spurs are going for a victory, because they need to improve the situation.
Club managed to beat the total in three out of five most recent matches
Four out of five most recent head-to-head matches started with a two-point shot
We can say that Houston's performance improved, but only on away games, team is still inconsistent at home. Rockets will try to put an end to their losing streak at Toyota Center, which consists of eight matches, but Gregg Popovich's men should not be underestimated.
After two consecutive defeats San Antonio needs an improvement and an away match against Rockets is a great opportunity to do that. In our opinion, Spurs will try their best to secure a victory.

Opponents have nothing to lose now, so we think that no one will sit out on defense. Rockets are playing offensively, so Spurs will have to outscore them. We think that opponents will beat the total.
Our second bet is on total over 228,5 points
