Take the Rockets. The Rockets dropped game 2 but they really showed me something coming back from 20 plus and actually getting a lead. If they hadn't had such a poor 1st quarter and had to expend so much energy to get back in the game they might have come away with a win. Westbrook had a poor game 2 but his team continues to show confidence in him. He is key because nobody on the Lakers has the quickness to stay in front of him. I also thought Harden was a bit passive in game 2 and we will see him more aggressive in game 3. The Lakers have an obvious size advantage but Houston is holding their own on the boards. The Lakers don't have the shooters and the Rockets are able to pack the paint. This game will stay close throughout and the Rockets are never out of a game with the way they can shoot. This should be a final possession game. Take the Rockets with the points.
