The San Antonio Spurs will host the Houston Rockets on Thursday night in a battle between the two worst teams in the Western Conference.

Despite their lowly records, these two clubs are heading in opposite directions. The Rockets have begun to turn things around lately, winning four of their last seven games. The Spurs, on other hand, are mired in an embarrassing 11-game losing streak.

Which scuffling squad will pull out the win tonight? Let's take a look.

Rockets vs. Spurs Prediction & Pick

As mentioned, the Rockets have been playing much better lately, earning hard-fought wins over the Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers during the past week. They seem to have turned a corner and are finding their identity.

The Spurs, on the other hand, are as lost as ever. They've lost 16 of their last 17 games and most of those defeats haven't even been competitive, as San Antonio's been getting blown out on a nightly basis.

This game represents a good chance for the Spurs to get back in the win column, but I don't see it happening. The Rockets have momentum on their side and should come away with a victory here.

Final Score Prediction: Rockets: 116 | Spurs: 110

Rockets vs. Spurs Best Bet

Both teams have had major issues putting the ball in the hoop this year. Houston ranks 22nd in scoring at 110.9 points per game, while San Antonio is even worse at 26th (109.5 points per game).

The Spurs have fallen short of 100 points in six of their last 11 games, looking totally out of sync. The Rockets can also be hit-or-miss and have alternated good offensive performances with bad ones lately.

Given the offensive ineptitude on both sides, I'm backing the Under on this lofty total here.

Bet: Under 230 Total Points (-108)
