This series is getting slower as it progresses as is evident by pace (number of possessions) as game one registered in at 97.7 game 2 at 95.3 and game 3 at 89.5. Houston is small ball team, with top tier talent , but a limited bench and that effects their offensive efficiency in flow when facing the Lakers big men who are really putting a physical beating on their opponents. Im betting nothing changes tonight.
LA LAKERS are 13-2 UNDER vs struggling rebounding teams - outrebounded by opponents by 5+/game over the last 2 seasons with the combined average score clicking in at 216.5 ppg.
HC D'Antoni is 36-17 UNDER when playing against a top-level team (Win Pct. 70% or more ) as the coach of HOUSTON with the combined average score registering at 218.2 ppg.
