HOU vs MIA Dream 11: Can the Rockets turn their fortunes around against the Heat?
HOU vs MIA Dream 11: Things haven’t gone well for the Houston Rockets in recent games.
They were on a great winning run but have lost their last three games. Those have come against some of their rivals for the NBA crown, and they face another tough test against an Eastern Conference team.
The Miami Heat might not be the best in the East, but they are 7-0 at home and lie third in the conference.
Miami are 12-4 but the West is a crazy stacked conference with several quality teams. The Heat defeated the Rockets a few weeks ago, and this will be an interesting clash for sure.

Dream 11 Fantasy tips and predictions
The Rockets were on an eight game winning run before coming unstuck against three quality sides from the west.
Their last loss was at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks, with Luka Doncic exploding once again. James Harden did score 32 while Russell Westbrook contributed with 27 of his own.
Clint Capela is one of the doubts from the Houston side (h/t Miami Herald), however, the away side could be short-handed.
Miami have seen several players miss games due to illness and Jimmy Butler is a doubt for this game (h/t Miami Herald).
Miami confirmed that Butler is back, but it might be better to skip him for this clash.
Derrick Jones Jr and KZ Okapala are also out while Justise Winslow could be back for the Heat (h/t Miami Herald).
Westbrook has to be one of the point guards for this game. The former Oklahoma City Thunder star has regularly scored points and could be one of the top performers from this clash.
Kendrick Nunn scored 19 points for the Heat in the win over the Hornets and could score big in this clash too.
Tyler Herro was a surprise for the Heat as he scored 18 points off the bench. He could be a cheap option to include in the team at 10 Cr and allow the inclusion of some big stars.
It is difficult to avoid naming Harden in any game featuring the Rockets. The Texas side might be on a losing run but The Beard is consistently scoring big points.
Duncan Robinson might not be the best option for this position, but his low value allows us to have some big names in the team.
Gary Clark of the Rockets might not get a lot of points either, but his inclusion does allow for some high value centers to feature.
Missing Capela is a bit of a blow but Bam Adebayo picked up 21 points and 13 rebounds for the Heat in their previous game.
Meyers Leonard is also capable of having a big game, though he scored only four points in the win over the Hornets.
Harden has to be the star player of the game. The Beard recorded 32 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds in the loss to the Mavs.
Playing at home should be a boost for the Rockets and they are favourites to win this game.
