Oh Goran! What I’d do to have you back in a Rockets uniform…
Green’s success this season is one of the key reasons for the Sun’s turnaround. He’s averaging a career-high 14.6 ppg.
Averaging 9.4 ppg and 6.4 ppg in (all) 54 games this season, Tucker has been a very solid contributor for the Suns and has played well against the Rockets this season.
Jones is averaging 6.8 ppg and 4.8 rpg in his last five games. Just before that stretch he dropped 19 points and 9 rebounds against Frye and the Suns. Which Jones will we get tonight?
Howard dropped 34 points and collected 14 rebounds in their last matchup. Let’s just say Plumlee may still be having nightmares from the game.
Prediction – Likely going to be a great game under the bright lights. Rockets win a close one, 101-99.
