Details and Personal Analysis

It was a match that began with a lot of balance but then the Rockets were taking an obvious advantage, when finishing the first half Houston would go to the break leading the scoreboard by 2 possessions.

Rockets totally dominated the 3rd quarter, but a defensive drop of Houston and increase in the attack by the Spurs gave an overwhelming partial to the Texas team in the last quarter, who equalized the encounter taking it to extra time being Lonnie Walker IV factor who not only led the attack but also made a great defense.

In the 2 extra times that lasted the encounter as a kind of Christmas bonus, the Spurs closed better and took the victory before the Rockets, it should be noted that it was one of the worst games of Russell Westbrooks who had a very poor percentage of field.
