The Rockets hope to avoid losing their sixth in a row on the road tonight against the Nets.
The Houston Rockets are on a slide, so the team must be licking their chops at the chance to play on the road at New Jersey on Saturday night. The Rockets have lost five in a row and have three more road games before playing again at home. In other words, the Nets come at the ideal time in the schedule. The Nets are at 14-27 and only the lowly Toronto Raptors keep them from occupying the basement in the Atlantic Division.
Houston is currently 21-19 and sitting in fourth place in the Southwest Division despite their positive record. The Nets represent a chance to turn around their fortunes and find some good news in the midst of a losing streak and endless trade rumors. Here's all the info you need to follow the game tonight in New Jersey
