Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers welcomed back Anthony Davis and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to the lineup on Sunday night to beat the Rockets, 120–102.
Davis scored a game-high 27, converting on nine of his 12 field goal attempts and nine of his ten free throw tries. He took it easy on the boards with just four.
Both he and LeBron James, who has been listed on the injury report for the last week despite not missing a game yet, played just about 30 minutes.
Talen Horton-Tucker, who received public attention in the preseason for his high scoring totals, continues to make an impact in the Lakers’ rotation.
THT finished seven of eight for 17 points, five rebounds, three assists and four steals in the win. He’s averaging over eight points per game on better than 48 percent shooting.
The Lakers will play in Houston on Tuesday before finishing their back-to-back in OKC on Wednesday.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder will also be on the second night of a back-to-back but it will be at home.
OKC hosts San Antonio on Tuesday after finishing 4–1 on a five-game road trip to get back over .500.
OKC lost big in Miami and failed to cover but won at Orlando, at New Orleans, at New York and at Brooklyn as an underdog each time.
The combination of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Hamidou Diallo, who were teammates for one season as freshmen at Kentucky, combined to shoot 21 of 30 from the field for 56 points.
Between them they had nine rebounds, 11 assists, six steals and just two turnovers. Diallo played just 24 minutes off the bench.
It was Diallo’s second big game in a row. He won’t scored 20 every night but he won’t miss many shots either. Most of his damage comes off of activity on the defensive end, on the fastbreak and on the offensive glass.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction: good spot for the Thunder.
The Lakers will feel the back-to-back more, considering they are the older team and have the travel. It’s also completely possible James or Davis sits this one.
OKC may thrive in this spot. Its lack of shooting makes it a scary play here against a terrific LA defense but I’ll take my chances if the markets offer six or seven points.
