The Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers meet Friday in summer league NBA action at the Chase Center. Here’s a Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction. This article will include a Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Pick.

Houston Rockets Betting Preview

The Houston Rockets will be playing their first game of the Summer League on Friday, and fans seem excited about this roster. The headliner is first round pick Reed Sheppard, who was taken with the third overall pick. Last season with the Kentucky Wildcats, he averaged 28.9 minutes per game and averaged 12.5 points per game while shooting 53.6 percent from the field and 52.1 percent from behind the three point line. Cam Whitmore is back with Houston after being named the Summer League MVP last season. N’Faly Dante signed a two-way deal with the Rockets, and he could end up spending plenty of time with the NBA club for the next few years. 

Los Angeles Lakers Betting Preview

The Lakers have really struggled so far in the Summer League, and they have lost three games in a row. On Wednesday, the Lakers faced off against the Miami Heat, and they ended up losing 80-76. All eyes have been on Bronny James, and he hasn’t played all that well. He played 28 minutes, and he put up three points, five rebounds, and three assists. Dalton Knecht did have a strong game, putting up 20 points and nine rebounds, and the Lakers have to be really excited about the way he looked. Colin Castleton also put up 18 points and 11 rebounds. Maxwell Lewis also put up 14 points. 

Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction

The Lakers have really struggled so far during the tournament, and it’s not going to be any better here. The Lakers' offense hasn’t been that good, and a big reason has been that Bronny James is not doing enough. They are going to continue to play Bronny plenty of minutes here, and he is going to fail to score many points again. The Rockets are going to cruise to the victory. Back the Rockets against the spread. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
