In a rematch of a memorable November 2nd clash, the 16-14 Houston Rockets will host the 19-9 Atlanta Hawks.

The first time these two teams played, James Harden scored 45 points to lead Houston to a 109-102 victory. Jeremy Lin helped Harden with 21 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists of his own.

With that being said, this is a very different Hawks team.

Atlanta has won 19 of 27 games and now ranks seventh in scoring defense. Something's got to give considering Houston ranks third in points per game.
