The Los Angeles Lakers are taking on the Houston Rockets which should be an interesting matchup since these two teams are built completely differently, so this isn't black and white as which team is better since they both emphasize different aspects of basketball. The Lakers utilize a much more recognizable style of basketball that likes to see LeBron and Anthony Davis dominate in the paint versus the Rocket's no risk it, no biscuit mentality with shifty guard play from Russell Westbrook and James Harden. James Harden was mortal in this series against the Thunder and Russell Westbrook was sidelined for most of the series. While the Thunder have been great defensively this season they really put a stop to James Harden who only scored 17 on 4-15, the Thunder matched up really well against the Rockets so I wouldn't put too much stock into it as the Lakers are built differently than the Thunder. The Lakers are the team to beat as Russel Westbrook will have limited looks in the paint unless he can manage to knock down a few 3s and while Harden should bounce back this team lives and dies by the 3 ball so I'll take over 225.5 while do think LA wins this one the Rockets could just get hot and cover or outright win.
