The Lakers meet the Rockets in the second round for game 1 in the playoffs. The Lakers are coming off a 4-1 series win against the Blazers, while the Rockets are coming off a game 7 victory against the Thunder. Rajon Rondo is listed as probable for the Lakers so hopefully he gets into the rotation to get his feet wet in the post season. I project the Lakers will double team James Harden and force the Rockets to win through the likes of Westbrook, Gordon, Covington, Tucker, etc. I like the Lakers to cover the spread in this one, if they can force James Harden off his game and prevent the Rockets from executing from behind the line, they'll clean up the boards with a decent sized victory in this one.
