What you need to know about the Rockets

The Rockets are out to make up for these teams’ contest on Sunday. They fell to the Lakers 95-85. Houston was down 75-54 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Shooting guard Eric Gordon (17 points) and power forward Christian Wood (16 points) were the top scorers for Houston.

Houston is balanced offensively with four players averaging double-digits in points per game, led by Christian Wood at 19.2. The Rockets could have the added benefit of the Lakers being short-handed tonight. Houston is on a four-game losing streak, and is 2-3 against the spread in 2021. 

What you need to know about the Lakers

The Lakers are the vastly superior team in this matchup. When these teams met on Sunday, Los Angeles held Houston to 85 points, and dominated in practically every possible metric. 

The one issue for the Lakers is health. LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Dwight Howard are all listed as day-to-day but are expected to play, and Talen Horton-Tucker and Wayne Ellington have both been ruled out for tonight’s game. If the Lakers use a form of load management, the spread could be in jeopardy when the fourth quarter rolls around.
