Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Friday when the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets meet at Toyota Center, for their third game of the Western Conference Semifinals.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS: Harden hasn’t played like an MVP candidate during the first two games and is averaging 16.5 points on 9-of-30 shooting. Harden did average 12 assists in the two contests but his overall numbers are a significant dropoff from the regular season, when he averaged 29.8 points, 11.8 assists and nine rebounds in four games against the Spurs. Forward Ryan Anderson tallied 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting in Game 2 and drained four 3-pointers in each of the first two games.

ABOUT THE SPURS: Parker fell to the floor after attempting a short jump shot with 8:52 remaining and immediately grasped his leg and it was clear the injury was likely of the severe variety when he had to be carried off by two teammates. He underwent an MRI exam on Thursday, which pinpointed the nature of the injury, and San Antonio will now ask backup point guard Patty Mills to step up and lessen Parker’s loss. “I can tell you one thing, that we’re all ready,” Mills said after Game 2. “We’re all ready to step up and make an impact.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockets listed as 4½-point favorites versus the Spurs, while the game’s total is sitting at 214½.

San Antonio and Houston traded blowout victories to open the series and one of the teams will take a 2-1 lead when the Spurs visit the Rockets in Wednesday’s Western Conference semifinals. Houston demolished the Spurs with a 27-point victory in the opener before San Antonio returned serve with a 25-point beat down of the Rockets in Game 2.

The Spurs thoroughly outplayed Houston in the latter stages on Wednesday but will be without point guard Tony Parker for the rest of the postseason after he suffered a ruptured left quadriceps in Game 2. San Antonio star forward Kawhi Leonard fueled his club’s rebound with 34 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and three steals in Wednesday’s victory. Houston’s sharp Game 1 effort was a stunner and the Rockets couldn’t stay in the follow-up contest with star point guard James Harden suffering through a 3-of-17 shooting performance while scoring just 13 points. “I just missed shots,” Harden told reporters after Game 2. “I didn’t convert layups. We knew they were going to come out with some aggressiveness. We just have to go out there and take care of business and do the things we didn’t do (in Game 2).”

In their last action, Houston was a 121-96 loser on the road against the Spurs. They failed to cover the +6-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (217) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

San Antonio was a 121-96 winner in its last match at home against the Rockets. They covered the -6-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 217 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
