A few days ago the Houston Rockets were able to tie up the series at 2-2 with the San Antonio Spurs. In that game, the San Antonio looked lackluster despite having big contributions from Kawhil Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge in the second game. On Tuesday night, the Spurs get a shot to take a 3-2 lead in the series to put Houston on the ropes. Here's a look at the latest Game 5 Preview including odds, TV channel, time and how to watch this NBA Playoffs game live streaming online.

Game 5 preview

This NBA playoffs series has seen each team win their two games by double digits so far.

That would seem to indicate a similar outcome tonight in San Antonio for the Spurs. However, the Houston Rockets came into Game 1 and ended up with a 126-99 victory away from home. So when Houston is fired up, they can win anywhere.

That was the case as they won Game 4 at home, 125-104. James Harden finished with 28 points and 12 assists, while Eric Gordon came off the bench to add 22 points. Gordon nailed 6-of-9 three-point shots he took, while Harden hit four of the nine he attempted. As a team, Houston shot 52.6 percent from the floor and 44.2 percent from three-point range.

The Spurs didn't fare so well from downtown, shooting just 7-for-23 or 30.4 percent. Leonard and Aldridge finished with 16 points each, after finishing with 26 each in the second game.

They'll try to get big performances from these two stars in tonight's home game and limit Houston's outside shooters to capture a series edge.

Tonight's odds favor the home team as San Antonio is being given five points on the point spread to win. The Moneyline has them at -230, while the Rockets are +195 underdogs. For the over/under, bettors will contemplate 215 as the points total.

A few trends to look at are that Houston is 11-7 against the spread as an underdog, while San Antonio is just 16-24-1 at home ATS and 35-39-3 as the favorite.
