More NBA Picks Predictions Previews

The Houston Rockets will debut against the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center at Rose Quarter in Portland Oregon on Saturday, December 26, 2020, at 10:00 P.M., ET.

The Rockets will play their 1st game this season after their match with the Thunder was postponed with COVID-19 related issues. The roster is a mess as John Wall, one of their newest acquisitions will be one of the players that will be out indefinitely. Harden clearly dislikes staying with the Rockets but their rumored trade deal with the Heat for him is now a thing of the past. DeMarcus Cousins will be on the floor with Harden and the squad is just hoping he can make the whole season without being sidelined with injuries.

James Harden did it all for the team last season when he led in points per game at 34.3 while also leading with 7.5 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and 0.9 blocks per outing in the past season. The squad is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers Predictions 12/26/2020

Portland wasn’t able to get the win when they faced the Jazz in their opener. The squad only scored 44 in the 1st half of the game while conceding 65 to Utah in the same span. They managed to add 56 in the 2nd half of the game but the Jazz did not stay down and made 55 of their own to result in a 20-point loss by the Trail Blazers at 120-100. They hit 40.2% of their shots from the floor on 37-92 attempts while draining 36.4% of their 3s on 12-33 shots. They were out-rebounded 64-49 in the game. The team is 4th in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference with a record of 0-1.

CJ McCollum made 23 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in the loss while Jusuf Nurkic added 13 points, 3 boards, and 3 dimes. Carmelo Anthony came off the bench to make 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists while Enes Kanter dropped 14 points and 8 boards. The team is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 0-5 SU in their last 5 matchups.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers. The NBA pick is the Houston Rockets. The Rockets were rocked with the pandemic right off the gate which delayed their debut. Harden is available but the big question is how he will play as he is uninterested with his current team. Portland had a lot of their key players in their 1st game but still failed hard against the Jazz. It’s hard to trust the team who did such a mediocre job in their opener. It’s best to give the Rockets a chance to show what they are made of in this game.
