Defense was just non-existent in the first half for the Bulls, which allowed the Spurs to score 38 points in the opening period. On offense, the Bulls were led by Jimmy Butler (23 points) and D.J. Augustin (24 points), who came off the bench.
The Rockets had their five-game winning streak snapped at Oklahoma City as the Thunder easily won to the tune of 106-98. Houston allowed OKC to score 56 points in the first half and just couldn’t find their own offense early. Repeated rallies from the Rockets were answered by the Thunder in the second half.
James Harden had 28 points to lead the Rockets but Dwight Howard only had 9 points missing 8 of 12 shots from the field.
It’s also a battle between squads on opposite ends of the spectrum. The visiting Rockets are one of the highest scoring teams in the NBA logging in 106.5 points per game (3rd) and they’ll meet a Bulls team which is one of the top defensive squads limiting the opposition to just 92.3 PPG.
The Rockets have won four consecutive games versus the Bulls in their head-to-head match-up including a pair of blowouts in the last two outings. The last meeting was a 109-04 victory on December 18. Dwight Howard had 23 points and 9 rebounds in that game and James Harden finished with 19 markers with 6 assists and 3 steals.
