Houston enters play on Friday night with a 23-13 record on the season. The team is only 8-8 playing on the road.

The teams first met back on November 27th in Houston with the Rockets posting the 113-84 victory on their home court against the Hawks as a -8 point wagering favorite with the total going under 205 points. The Rockets have injury concerns entering this Friday night affair with Atlanta. Their shooting forward Chandler Parsons is listed as doubtful as he is experiencing a knee problem he suffered in practice. Atlanta has a bigger loss. The team will be without center Al Horford for the entire season as he tore a pectoral muscle. It is a major injury because Horford was a very efficient player by averaging 18 points and 56% shooting from the field this season. This will mark the second year over the past three seasons that Horford would have not played 30 games a season. He was sidelined in 2011-12 and played in only 11 games. Atlanta may be getting some credit from the lines maker in this game based on their home win to Indiana. A close look and you will find the Pacers were in a horrible spot playing in a back to back on the road and playing in their fourth game in five nights.
