Houston Rockets

For the season, the Houston Rockets have lost 19 games out of their last 22 games, and their winning percentage is under .250. The team's momentum was halted after they were defeated by Dallas on Wednesday.

Their poor defensive performance has been one of the reasons for their struggles this season. The team allows 118.1 points per game and is last in the NBA in terms of opposing field goal shooting.

Their offense has been poor, with an adjusted offensive rating of 27th and scoring 108.7 PPG. The team's biggest offensive threat is listed as Christian Wood, who is averaging 18.1 points and 8.1 rebounds.


Portland Trail Blazers

Even though the Trail Blazers are not expecting to make the playoffs, they have some hope. They are only three games back of the final spot of New Orleans.

The Trail Blazers lost a crucial game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, which means that they need to beat the other teams in the race for the final playoff spot. With a favorable schedule, they can take some momentum into their next game against the Houston Rockets.

The team's defense has been a major issue this season, as they are 29th in adjusted defensive rating. They are also last in the NBA in terms of three-point shooting. Due to the absence of Damian Lillard, the team's offense has been sluggish.
