Reason for Orlando Magic vs Houston Rockets NBA Basketball Picks

In the span of six days, the Houston Rockets went from being one of the best teams in the NBA to one that sought answers and ran the risk of falling into the Western Conference standings.

The Rockets suffered their third consecutive loss on Saturday against Charlotte, absorbing a 108-99 defeat from cable to cable in which they dragged 20-0 to open the game.

The setback ended a brutal week of results for Houston, who lost up to 21 points losing to the New York Knicks last Monday before continuing 30 points in a 120-105 home loss to The Clippers. Angeles Thursday.

Houston fell from the threat of moving to second place in the West in fifth place behind the resurgence of Utah Jazz and only half a game ahead of Oklahoma City.

Houston will host the Orlando Magic Sunday at the Toyota Center that needs recovery.

The Rockets will receive the rear guard Russell Westbrook, who sat in Charlotte as part of his protocol with consecutive games. The Rockets were also without guard Eric Gordon in Charlotte while continuing to fight right knee pain.

Orlando won a critical victory in Minnesota on Friday, winning 132-118 against the Timberwolves despite the loss of coach Steve Clifford due to medical problems in the third quarter.

Clifford left the band line with dizziness and symptoms of dehydration and then left Target Center to go to the Hennepin County Medical Center, where, after further testing, he was discharged.

Clifford, who took a medical permit while working for Charlotte, joined the Magic on Saturday to train in Houston before the Rockets game. But the day after his departure, the anxiety of the Orlando players was palpable.

Clifford admitted on Saturday that he had been ill during the week and could not eat. He progressively felt worse during the game and finally decided to visit the medical staff.

After receiving an intravenous injection, Clifford began to feel better. He said his symptoms were over and he was ready to handle the Magic in search of a second consecutive place in the playoffs. Orlando, 4-4 from the stellar break, is eighth in the Eastern Conference standings.
