On Thursday night, the San Antonio Spurs will go on the road and try to hand the Houston Rockets their first loss of the season.
During the 2013-14 season, the Rockets were the one team in the NBA that the Spurs just couldn't figure out. In all four of their matchups, Houston was able to beat the Spurs, with two of those wins coming on the road. Not only did they beat them four straight times, they won by at least six points in each of those games.
Spurs power forward Tim Duncan has played against Houston 64 times in his career and has scored 19.7 points per game with 10.4 rebounds per game. In 47 games against the Rockets, point guard Tony Parker has averaged 17 points and 6.7 assists, while veteran Manu Ginobili has averaged 14.8 points per game against them in 40 career games.
On Tuesday, the Rockets were able to keep their perfect record intact by beating the Miami Heat 108-91 on the road. They shot 51.5 percent from the field in that win and made 17 shots from beyond the arc.
The Rockets have been able to score 105.6 points per game this season while only giving up 91.4 points per game. Shooting guard James Harden has been excellent through five games, averaging 27.2 points, 7.4 assists and 6.8 rebounds per game. Small forward Trevor Ariza has made 58 percent of his three-pointers and is averaging 17.6 points per game.
