Rockets Vs. Wizards: Washington Hosts Surging Houston Squad

The Washington Wizards have been struggling for, well, the whole season really; and things don't get much easier as they'll host three very talented teams from the Western Conference at the Verizon Center this week. That rough stretch starts with the Houston Rockets, which features an unlikely matchup of one of the most talented point guards in the NBA and one of the most productive.

Houston's Kyle Lowry leads the team in scoring, assists and steals, and is less than a half a rebound away from leading them in scoring. He has been a threat to go off for a triple double almost every time he touches the floor, and will be a tough matchup for John Wall.

Behind Lowry the Rockets have some good secondary scorers and role players and should provide a tough test for the Wizards.
