Houston Rockets +5.5. Rockets earn the Game 1 outright win 112-97 as they shoot 48% from the floor. Houston small ball style could be effective in this series. Lakers struggled with the speed of the Houston perimeter athletes. LA again showed their weakness in perimeter offense making only 11 of 38 from three. Lakers have to work hard defensively to keep up with Houston spacing and ball movement. Their roster does not seem to have enough speed contest shots. Rockets have had success against the Lakers this year winning and covering three straight. Rather take the points here. Play Rockets +5.5.
