NBA Playoffs Preview – Rockets vs Spurs Game 6
San Antonio Spurs (3-2) at Houston Rockets (2-3)
Thursday, May 11
8:00 ET at Toyota Center
Tonight’s NBA Playoffs game features the Rockets returning home in a make or break game. They are trailing 3-2 to the San Antonio Spurs led by Kwahi Leonard. James Harden is going to play 45 minutes tonight, as he does not want to go home, and is pushing to force game 7. Harden is coming off a triple double, and will look to fill the stat sheet once again tonight against a tough Kwahi Leonard.
On the otherhand, Kwahi Leonard and the Spurs are looking to close things out in Houston tonight, and gain that extra few days of rest for their veterans. Kwahi had a monster 22 point and 15 rebound in Game 5. He may not grab that many boards tonight, but will definitely ramp up his scoring. We expect Kwahi to go for 40+ points, and lead the charge to take home a victory. This series has been incredible, and look for tonight to be another thriller.
