Offense The Hallmark Of Rockets Winning Streak

It is not much of a shock but it has been all offense, all the time for the Houston Rockets during their current winning streak. The Rockets have won four-straight while averaging 123 points per game, which has led to the OVER going a perfect 4-0 in that span as well. Can the Rockets keep that going against the defensive juggernaut that is the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday?
