3* NBA SMASH on Rockets +6
San Antonio vs. Houston,
12/10/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 134 - 126
Point Spread: +6/-110 Houston
Off back-to-back defeats, the Rockets will show up ready to play tonight, especially since one of these defeats was an embarrassing 114-92 loss at San Antonio. Rest assured, the Rockets will put up a much better fight against the Spurs at home.
Houston has won seven of its last nine at home and one of the two losses came by only three points to the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. The Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.
Houston has also had a lot of success at home against the Spurs. The Rockets have won their last three at home in the series and have won or lost by three points or less in eight of the past 10 home meetings.
James Harden could miss this game with an ankle injury, but I like the Rockets here regardless. Bet Houston.
