The Houston Rockets will try to build on their brief two-game winning streak this weekend, but will have to do so while playing a tough road back-to-back.
The Rockets will face the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night, and then travel to Cleveland on Saturday to play the Cavaliers. Houston has been hot though, as they've won two straight games, as well as seven of their last nine.
The Bucks enter the game at 16-14, and as their record suggests, have been up and down all year. They're currently on a two game losing streak, but possess the scoring punch to give any team a run.
The Cavs are in the midst of a three game losing streak, and have continued to struggle despite the return of Kyrie Irving from injury. At 7-26, they're one of the worst teams in the NBA, and the Rockets have a good shot at the win, even though they'll be on the second night of the back-to-back.
