The Houston Rockets can’t fell too good with a 23-14 record at this point of the season. With an inside outside threat with Dwight Howard and James Harden plus a cast of solid supporting players the team is underperforming. You just get the feel you are not getting their best effort night in and night out. The overall commitment level to winning in the regular season will need to be raised and it probably will need a game 7 road defeat in the playoffs for this team to understand the importance of playoff seeding moving forward. The Rockets should not be laying this low number to a low level Eastern Conference team at Washington. They are because Houston is 8-9 straight up on the road and has been inconsistent throughout the season. Dwight Howard is averaging just over 17 points a game which is well below the 20 plus average he held in his Orlando days. He is grabbing two less boards a game since his peak form days with the Magic. You just don’t feel that Howard is a dominating force under the bucket like in the past. The Super may have left the chest these days. The Wizards are 16-18 and in the playoff hunt in a bad Eastern conference this season. They have shot the ball very well from the three point line hitting on 38.3% from beyond the arc.
