Rockets, Magic, bounce back from devastating losses

The Houston Rockets and the Orlando Magic are both coming from losses before this match, which is why they are aiming to bounce back in this match. These two teams meet on November 8, 2022, at 8:20 AM (GMT+8) with the Magic hosting the Rockets. The hosts are currently 2-8 in the standings while the visitors, who are 1-9 in the standings, are in a six-game losing streak, which they badly want to end. A win in this match could help them have a good momentum for their future matches.

These two teams are two of the teams who have yet to win a road game, so the Rockets might be at the little advantage in this match. These two teams struggled since the season starts, so they are really in need of more wins in their future matches. The hosts started their season with a loss to their first five matches. They currently have two wins from their 10 games this season, but it is not yet enough to take them far this season. As for the visitors, they only won one game in their ten fixtures, and are in a losing streak before going into this match.

It is a tough season for the Rockets as they are currently 1-9 in the standing, and is now in a six-game losing streak. This team struggled both at home and on the road, but they got their only win this season at home. On their match last season, it was the Houston who took home the victory with a 23-point lead. However, tables might have turned in this season. They are currently averaging 107 points on a 41.8% of shooting. On one hand, they allow 115.7 points per game and a 48.8% shooting which is a little high. With that record, it is obvious that this team needs to improve their defense.

Kevin Porter Jr. is the leader for the Rockets with an average of 20.4 points per game. He is followed by Jalen Green who grabs 19.3 points per game. Alperen Sengun and Eric Gordon are also able to contribute for the Rockets.
