Projected Starting Lineups
Rockets: Eric Gordon, Garrison Mathews, Jae’Sean Tate, Daniel Theis, Christian Wood
Pelicans: Devonte’ Graham, Garrett Temple, Herbert Jones, Brandon Ingram, Jonas Valanciunas
In an attempt to extend their winning streak to half a dozen, the Rockets will have to do so without starting point guard Kevin Porter Jr — who left Friday’s 118-116 victory over the Orlando Magic due to a left thigh contusion.
In addition to Porter, the Rockets’ backcourt will be extremely thin, with rookie guard Jalen Green still out due to a hamstring strain.
The Pelicans are coming into the Toyota Center after one of their most impressive wins of the 2021-22 season. New Orleans took a 107-91 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, behind Brandon Ingram’s 24 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds performance. After starting the season 2-15, the Pelicans have won five out of their previous eight games.
