The Lakers meet the Rockets for game 5 as the Lakers are coming off a 110-100 victory against the Rockets, leading the series 3-1. The Lakers have adjusted to the Rockets small-ball action and did not play JaVale McGee or Dwight Howard in their last game. The Lakers have been doubling James Harden and forcing turnovers, and also forcing them to score in the paint which has been throwing the Rockets off their game. It seems like the Lakers defense has the solution for the Rockets offense and they have their number here. I have to go with the Lakers to cover the spread. The Rockets are a great team but this seems like the end of the line for them in game 5.
