The last time both the Houston Rockets and the Denver Nuggets met on the court, Denver went on to spoil Houstons first win streak of the season.
Despite it being a close game in the first half, the Nuggets put up 35 points on an efficient 65 percent from the field in the third quarter that sparked the Rockets downfall.
The Rockets hope to put that performance behind them and steal a win. However, they’ll have their hands full trying to stop the reigning two time MVP Nikola Jokic.
If there was a game plan to win tonight, it would be Houston’s commitment to defense.

Regardless of the result of tonights game, the vibes will still be immaculate!
