The Lakers, as they are, are in terrible shape right now, but that doesn’t mean that they are dead in the water without a paddle. Perhaps this team might end up playing better basketball without F Pau Gasol and C Dwight Howard in the lineup, as these two could ultimately be holding the team back from running Head Coach Mike D’Antoni’s open style of play. G Steve Nash is going to have the ball in his hands quite a bit, and we think G Kobe Bryant could be in for a huge day when push comes to shove. The Rockets are a great team, but the oddsmakers have to be catching up to them, knowing that they have won and covered four games in a row, averaging well over 110 points per game in the process. In the end in this one, don’t be all that surprised if this turns out to be a really special night for Bryant and the Lakers, as they could come on the road and pull off the upset.
Lakers @ Rockets Pick: Los Angeles Lakers
Lakers @ Rockets Prediction: Lakers 116 – Rockets 111
