The Boston Celtics will have their hands full as they visit Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets, this Tuesday at 8 PM ET.
The Celtics have dropped three in a row after winning four previous games. Boston committed 22 turnovers in the loss against the Timberwolves 106-88 in their last outing.
“I think we just have to find our comfort zone again,” forward Jared Sullinger said. “That four-game winning streak, we found a comfort zone and we were sharing the ball. We were moving the ball things and things were hopping on the floor and didn’t stay on one side. We are just over thinking and still trying to find that comfort zone.”
Houston has won three of their last four with the only defeat coming against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Rockets are the best rebounding team in the NBA, mostly because of the addition of Dwight Howard, but they need him to step up in the free throws department.
“There’s nothing I can do but try to make the free throws,” Howard told the team’s official website. “Just focus and make them pay at the line. There’s nothing I can do about it besides make them. The more free throws I make, the less teams will do the Hack-A-Howard. So, I’m just going to continue to practice, and they will start falling.”
The Rockets are 11 points favorites in the NBA Odds, and the game total was set at 203.5 points.
