It’s a big Western Conference showdown on Wednesday night in the Lonestar State. The Los Angeles Lakers travel to Houston to take on the Rockets.
It’s a match up between one of the best teams in the NBA and one of the worst. This is the third meeting of the year. Both teams won the previous match up on their home court.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the worst teams in the NBA, and that’s okay with their fans, as long as they stay bad enough.
As long as the Lakers stay in the bottom three of the NBA they keep their draft pick, but if they don’t they will lose it. Losing a draft pick in this loaded of a draft would be devastating for the rebuilding efforts of the Lakers.
The Lakers come into this game having gone 1-9 in their last ten games, and most of the games haven’t even been close. In their last game they lost to the Nuggets by a final of 129-101.
One of the big problems with the Lakers is they don’t have a veteran leader in their locker room to teach them how to win.
If the Lakers want any chance to win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. They have to try and slow down the high powered Rockets offense.
On the other side of the match up is the Houston Rockets. They currently sit in 3rd place in the Western Conference and seemed to be locked in at that spot, unless they had a big collapse.
They come into this game having gone 6-4 in their last ten games. In their last game they beat the Cavaliers by a final score of 117-112.
The Rockets really need to try and attack this game early. The season is a real grind and if they could rest their starters in the fourth quarter that would be a huge help.
As long as the Rockets don’t overlook this game they will win it. They are the better team in this match up and it’s not even close.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
This game isn’t about who’s going to win, that team is going to be the Rockets. The question is will the Rockets cover the spread.
I think they will. James Harden will have a feast against the Lakers who don’t play much defense at all.
