Take the under. The Rockets are coming into this game on just one day's rest after a hard fought 7 game series with OKC. We know that the Rockets game plan will be small ball and shoot three but I don't see them having their shooting legs for this game. The Lakers come into this game well rested. They are going to try to push the Rockets off that 3 point line and take advantage of their size. The Lakers have had trouble with the Rockets in the past but OKC provided a blue print on what it takes to beat them. I'm sure the Lakers took notice. LA which struggles to shoot from distance will look to drain the shot clock and then pound it inside to limit possessions. This game stays under the posted total.
