The Houston Rockets and the Boston Celtics will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at TD Garden.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (34-14): Harden had 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds in Monday’s loss while committing 11 of his team’s 22 turnovers. “We just turned the ball over a little bit carelessly, and they answered on the other end with it,” forward Ryan Anderson told the media after a 16-point effort. Anderson had returned from an illness to reclaim his starting spot in favor of Sam Dekker, who had a career-high 30 points against Memphis in his first career start but dipped to four points on 2-of-7 shooting against the Bucks.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (26-18): Center Al Horford was a bright spot in Tuesday’s loss with 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting, and he is 4-for-5 from long distance in the last two games after going 2-for-13 in the previous two. The Celtics have lost four of their last six games without guard Avery Bradley, who will continue to sit with an Achilles injury. Boston is 6-1 in the second half of its last seven back-to-backs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockets listed as 3.5-point favorites versus the Celtics, while the game’s total is sitting at 229½.

Last time out for Boston, they were a 123-108 loser as they battled the Wizards on the road. The Celtics failed to cover in the match as a +1.5-point underdog, while 231 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Houston lost its last outing, a 127-114 result against the Bucks on January 23. The Rockets failed to cover in that game as a -4.5-point favorite, while the 241 combined points took the game OVER the total.

The Houston Rockets will try to establish some measure of consistency when they continue a five-game road trip at the Boston Celtics on Wednesday. The Rockets have been exchanging wins and losses for the past seven games (3-4) and five of the results have been decided by at least 13 points.

After opening the road trip with a 24-point win at Memphis, Houston dropped a 127-114 decision at Milwaukee on Monday. “We had a really good game last game (at Memphis) defensively, and this game we just let up,” guard James Harden told reporters after falling a rebound shy of another triple-double. “In order to get where we want to go, we have to be consistent on that end of the floor.” The Celtics will be trying to avoid their first four-game losing streak of the season and looking for some improvement on the defensive end as well. They have given up an average of 122.3 points during their three-game slide and Washington shot 57.8 percent in handing Boston a 123-108 defeat Tuesday night.
