“1 UNIT” NBA LINETRACKER (Rockets +10’ at Clippers in a 10:35 eastern tipoff televised nationally on league-owned NBA-TV): This is going to be a very big weekend for the NBA as the league will be showcased internationally for three full days. This year’s All-Star game will be played in Houston where Rockets first-time All Star James Harden will serve as de-facto host. Tonight’s line has been radically readjusted since Harden suffered a twisted ankle on Tuesday and will NOT suit up this evening.
But for those who watch this NBA-TV late night special keep an eye out for Houston’s Chandler Parsons. who on Tuesday poured in 21 points while dishing out 9 assists and hauling down 8 rebounds. Parsons is good enough to be part of All-Star weekend in the “rising stars” challenge.
Last night Houston won with relative ease at Golden State in a 116-107 triumph, which was a homecoming of sorts for Jeremy Lin, who now has become a respected point guard through the league even though no longer a national fixation.
I will admit that the Clippers are getting healthy as star Chris Paul has poured in 46 points in the last pair of contests after missing a dozen games due to a bruised kneecap. Even though the Clippers have won-and-covered a pair of contests, they have a “look ahead” to tomorrow’s clash against the cross-town rival Lakers. This evening, the ROAD team is seeking to cover the spread for a fourth consecutive time in this Rockets/Clippers series.
