The Houston Rockets are looking to win their third straight game for the first time this season, however this game against the Washington Wizards game is their third game in four nights. The Wizards are one of the worst teams in the NBA this year and have a record of 1-11 to date.
One thing the Rockets may do is giving guards Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin a rest against the Wizards. The two players average average a combined 80 minutes per game and average 38 points per game. If they can get a break on occasion in this truncated season it can only help the team down the road for those brutal back-to-back-to-back games.
