Bucks VS Rockets (Thoughts)

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

I have PJ Tucker on stilts going for a 50 burger tonight and being in top 5 center of all time conversations tomorrow morning.

Rolling with my Rocket crew to the house. I have the Lakers winning the bubble but I’m rooting for the Rockets always. There is no one in the NBA who deserves a title more than Russell Westbrook. He defines the term “savage”. Night in and night out he is dying on that court. 

The Rockets are the easiest team to dissect and predict in the NBA. You don’t have to have a high basketball IQ to know what to expect from these guys. For success, James Harden has to play good and everyone has to hope their 3 point shot is on that day. 

We are about to see an absolute storm of 3 pointers. I’m not a total guy but whatever the line is I wouldn’t bet the under for anything. It’s bet the over or don’t at all.

I’m worried about the Rockets small ball tonight against these huge Bucks, but I’ll count on the boys to hit their 3s. Based on what I saw Friday from the Rockets, there’s no slacking. They are motivated and are treating every game like it’s the playoffs. Russell Westbrook is insane. James Harden is insane. I will take the +5 all day and if it goes up to 6 with all this heat on Bucks later, even better. 

The Rockets can outscore anyone and I’m straight riding with them later. The Milwaukee creeps are the biggest regular season heroes to ever be assembled. I cannot stand them. 

Rockets Projected Stat Lines:

Russell Westbrook: 30 pts 13 reb 10 ast

James Harden: 95 pts 6 reb 9 ast

Danuel House: 15 pts 2 reb 0 ast

Robert Covington: 20 pts 0 reb 0 ast

PJ Tucker: 50pts 35 reb 0 ast
