Game thread: Rockets vs. Bucks

The Rockets hope to continue their winning ways on the road in Milwaukee.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets are looking to extend their winning streak to 17 games tonight as they head to Milwaukee to take on a Bucks team that gave Houston a run for their money the first time these teams met.

The Rockets came away with a 115-111 victory at the Toyota Center, though it could be a different story with the game taking place at the Harris Bradley Center and the Rockets playing their second game in as many nights after downing the Thunder in Oklahoma City last night.

Of course, Clint Capela didn’t play the last time these two teams met, and he’s proven to be a great advantage this year in many matchups.

The Greek Freak will, of course, lead the charge for Milwaukee, and they will be playing tough, as they currently sit in seventh place in the Eastern Conference and are working to secure a spot in the postseason.

It’s not going to be an easy one tonight. In fact, it’s likely to be quite hard. But should Houston run the streak to 17 in difficult circumstances, this team has a real shot at making a push for the team record 22.

Go Rockets!
