Houston coach Mike D’Antoni says the Rockets will have to be at the top of their game to overcome Denver Nuggets on Friday.
The Rockets head to the Pepsi Center seeking to bounce back after a disappointing home loss to New Orleans Pelicans last time out.

Denver currently sit second in the Western Conference, one game behind leaders Golden State Warriors, but Houston can take confidence from their impressive recent record against the Nuggets.
The Rockets have won both meetings this season – and the last five games in a row – but D’Antoni is taking nothing for granted ahead of the clash.
“Obviously, we’d keep doing it [beating Denver]. A lot of times it’s just circumstances,” said D’Antoni, as reported by Chron.
“It was a different team [in previous seasons.] We have beaten them twice this year. We played really well in both games. Sometimes that happens. They’re a very good team. “I know they’re using that probably as motivation, so we’re going to get the best of them. It’ll be a very difficult game, which it always is in Denver. But they do a great job. We need to play well. The wins kind of take care of themselves.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
