On May 17, as part of the regular season, the NBA will host a game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Houston Rockets. We offer you a forecast for this match.

Atlanta Hawks»

Atlanta is playing very, very well under McMillan, and there's a feeling that the Hawks will be able to make some noise in the playoffs. In the final round, it will be clear who Atlanta will play. But, most likely, it will be the New York Knicks, and in this confrontation, the odds will almost certainly be 50-50.

Houston Rockets»

In the last game against the Clippers, Houston sensationally won, but the credit here is not with the Rockets, but because Tyronn Lew played in fact the second team. "Houston" with "Atlanta" such a trick is unlikely to be repeated. The Rockets have been the whipping boys all season.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:
Reddish (Achilles injury) – Atlanta. Brown (knee injury), Bradley (personal reasons), Wood, Porter, House (all-ankle injury), Gordon (groin injury), Nwaba (wrist injury), Wall (muscle injury), Exam (calf injury) – Houston.

Statistics and figures:

  • Atlanta has won three games in a row;
  • Houston has just one win in its last eight games;
  • Houston has won four of its last five games against Atlanta.

Forecast:

"Houston" ends this disastrous season, which I want to forget as soon as possible. Last place and absolutely the worst numbers in the entire NBA – this is something the Rockets could not imagine. We think that in the final match, the Texans will face another defeat.
