James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and the Houston Rockets will face the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday afternoon.
The Rockets don’t have Clint Capella (heal) in Sunday’s home showdown, but the Pelicans will be almost full in terms of the main piece.

Before making rockets vs Pelican’s selection or NBA predictions,
The sports line projection model simulated all NBA games 10,000 times and last season returned an impressive 4,280 with the top-rated NBA spread and money line selection.
He has already returned nearly 3,000 dollars in revenue from the NBA’s top teams in the 2019-20 seasons and entered the 15th week with a 33-16 winning streak with all top-class NBA choices. Anyone who followed me has seen a big return.
Still, New Orleans is not a padlock that covers the pelicans spread against the Rockets. The model also understands that the Rockets are a strong team at home and have set a record of 16-7 this season.
Houston is one of the top offenses in the NBA led by Harden and Westbrook, and the Rockets are in the top three of the league with free throw rates and overall attack efficiency.
Houston is also well above the average of shooting efficiency and rotation avoidance, and can sometimes be expanded against unstable Pelicans defenses.
The Rocket cleverly applies the strategy of creating rotations and avoiding attacks defensively, and Houston’s smaller and faster defensive scheme without Capella could be effective in limiting New Orleans.
