The 76th Sense: League Pass Weekend Watch

For this edition of League Pass Weekend Watch I’m going with the Houston Rockets.

Houston has been on an absolute tear as of late led by the bearded one.  They’re 11-1 in their last 12 games and Harden’s been cookin’ to the tune of: 40.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, 9 assists, and 2 steals.

They only have one game this weekend, but it’s a big one.

Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers: Saturday, 1/5/19 @10:00pm ET

The last time these two teams met was on December 11th and the Rockets won at home 111-104.  The season series is currently tied at 1-1 and Portland will be looking for payback this time around at the Moda Center, where they hold a record of 14-6 on the season.

Depending on what Portland does in the front half of their back-to-back on Friday night, they could pass Houston in the standings with a win Saturday night. We’ll see if Lillard and McCollum can provide enough fire power in back to back games to hold of Harden and co.

Prediction: Houston wins 119 to 117
