This series has been fairly slow paced , with 97 and 95 possessions in Games 1 and 2 . Alot of turnovers have created alot of fast breaks points but that Im betting will regress , and what will remain is a more conservative type of affair here in game 3.
HOUSTON is 17-6 UNDER when playing against a top-level team (Win Pct. 70% or better ) - 2nd half of the season over the last 3 seasons with a combined average of 219.8 ppg scored.
LA LAKERS are 14-6 UNDER against Southwest division opponents this season with a combined average of 221 ppg going on the board.
NBA teams where the total is 220 to 229.5 (LA LAKERS) - well rested team - playing 4 or less games in 10 days, in a game involving two good teams (60% to 75%) are 51-19 L/5 seasons for a 73% conversion rate.
