-On their last game against the New York Knicks, James Harden almost inched past Wilt Chamberlain without planning to stop his latest one-man show until he is tied with Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.
He had a spectacular game that night for the one of the NBA’s sensational scorers; James Harden did not just grab his career high with 61 big points, but got even with Kobe Bryant’s record for a visiting player at the current Madison Square Garden.
Harden made it hard for the Knicks when he made his clinching layup with just 3.8 seconds remaining in the payoff period just after the Knicks turned it over beating them in a final score of 114-110.

– Could be back by the end of the week due to hamstring injury.
– Did not play against the Knicks due to Knee injury.
– Did not play against the Knicks due to undisclosed matter.
-On their last game against the Indiana Pacers things did not go as planned when they lost 106-110. Serge Ibaka led Toronto with 23 points and 11 rebounds while Kyle Lowry helped with 20 points. Although the Raptors played without Kawhi Leonard, O.G. Anunoby or Jonas Valanciunas they still made it tough for their opponent to beat them. They got closed as much 98-97 in the fourth when Serge Ibaka made a 5 – footer with just less than 4 minutes and 20 seconds to play. However they were struck by Young’s three point basket.
Point Guard #7 Kyle Lowry
Point Guard # 23 Fred Vanvleet
Shooting Guard #14 Danny Green
Power Forward #9 Serge Ibaka
Power Forward #43 Pascal Siakam

Despite James Harden’s big points every game, The Houston Rockets has been a roller coaster rides in their past few games. They have won only five of their last ten games this season. The Houston Rockets are now averaging 112.2 points per game while their key players James Harden has 36.3 points per game, Clint Capela 17.6 points per game and Eric Gordon with 16.1 points per game. On the other hand, The Toronro Raptors are still looking good winning eight of their last ten games. They are now averaging 113.8 points per game while their key players Kawhi Leonard have 27.6 points per game, Serge Ibaka 16.3 points per game and Pascal Siakam with 15.0 points per game. Even though Toronto is on its strong form, The Houston Rockets may have the edge on their home court considering the fact that one of the Raptors top scorers just returned from his injury and is doubt if he will have a great ball game or not.
Predicted win: Houston Rockets no overtime
