The Houston Rockets (48-22) take on the Philadelphia 76ers (15-56) who are losers of 25 straight games. Houston, on the other hand, is on a 4-game winning streak after beating the top-10 defense of the Charlotte Bobcats. Philadelphia just got toasted by the San Antonio Spurs. Unbelievably, the 76ers won the last match-up against the Rockets 123-117. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM and can be seen on CSN Houston.
MCW has shown flashes of brilliance as a rookie, but he is just that: a rookie. Inconsistency is the name of the game for Carter-Williams, and Beverley won’t give him anything easy.
Anderson scored 36 points in the last outing. Here’s what we tweeted before the Rockets/Sixers first game:
The rockets could have started nobody at the shooting guard position and I think they’d still have an advantage there.

Mistake. Still, don’t expect to see that again. Harden has been on fire offensively, but his defensive intensity has improved, and he’s averaging nearly 2 steals per game since the All-Star Break. He’s also James Harden.
Who is Hollis Thompson?
Young is the best player on this team. He’s averaging 18 points, 6 rebounds, and 1.4 steals a game this year. He’s certainly become a volume shooter since the trade deadline took Spencer Hawes away, but the guy is talented. Jones is still lacking consistency, but is capable of having a monster game any night.
Seriously, are these guys made up? Henry Sims?
76ers – Tony Wroten (DTD)
Prediction: The Rockets aren’t going to lose to this team again. Rockets win 124-101.
