Houston Rockets and LA Lakers to play over the total of 215 points. This total is 12 points lower than Game 1. Rockets having issues defending the Lakers in this series as their small ball is failing them. Lakers in the past two games of this series outrebounded Houston by 13 in Game 4 then the margin doubled to 26 in Game 4. LA is doing what they want in the paint and with their size advantage shooting well inside. Rockets facing elimination will launch their threes and try to increase pace and possessions. Lakers don’t want to extend this series so they will be focused to continue to get those high percentage shots near the basket. Play Lakers and Rockets over 215.
