What you need to know about the Rockets

Houston beat the Detroit Pistons 116-107 this past Saturday. Power forward Christian Wood (21 points) was the top scorer for Houston and he was one of seven players in double-figures. The Rockets were very active on the defensive end and collected 15 steals which is a season high.

Houston will be without its starting backcourt on Monday as Kevin Porter Jr. (thigh) and Jalen Green (hamstring) are out, while Armoni Brooks (ankle) is questionable. No team excels at getting to the line as well as Houston, but no team also fares as poorly from the charity stripe as the Rockets. The team leads the NBA with 24.2 free throw attempts per game but ranks last with a 70.2 free throw percentage.

What you need to know about the Bulls

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Chicago beat the Los Angeles Lakers 115-110 on Sunday. Chicago’s small forward DeMar DeRozan did his thing and had 38 points and six assists. It was the Bulls’ first game following two postponements due to COVID and it was DeRozan’s first contest since Dec. 4.

Chicago has several players in the league’s health and safety protocols including Zach LaVine, Alize Johnson and Ayo Dosunmu. None are expected to suit up on Monday while Derrick Jones Jr. (hamstring) is a game-time decision. The Bulls are a high-quality 3P shooting team despite not being a high quantity one as they rank fifth in three-point percentage but rank just 29th in attempts.
