Prediction for the NBA Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers match will take place on March 16th. Who will turn out to be stronger? Check the team conditions! Several betting options are available.
The Rockets had a sensation in their last game, outscoring Eastern Conference leader Boston 111-109 at home. The Celtics made only 28.6% of their three-pointers, but that was solely the opponent’s problem. As for Houston, they beat Boston 48:38 in rebounding – and had an excellent three-point effort from the three court. Jalen Green, with 28 points, and Jabari Smith, with 11 rebounds to go with his 24 points, should be specially noted on the Rockets. This was the third win for Stephen Silas’ team in the last six games.
For the Lakes, the game in Houston will be the second part of a back-to-back. In the first contest, Darvin Ham’s team outplayed a tough New Orleans, 123-108. That game could be described as “Anthony Davis completely dominating his opponent.” Davis, who started at the center, scored 35 points and grabbed 17 rebounds. With that kind of big play, LeBron James might not return to the floor for the rest of the regular season, as the Lakers can make the playoffs without him.
Expert Betting Tips
Anthony Davis has returned to form but will not participate in the upcoming game as he cannot play back-to-back for medical reasons. The Lakers may need help scoring without him. All the more so because Houston is playing good defense in the paint, and even with the addition of D’Angelo Russell, the Lakers still lack a sharpshooter capable of consistently hitting from the perimeter. The Rockets aren’t likely to score much either, given that they have one of the worst offenses this season, and the Lakers have improved on defense since the trade deadline. So we’re betting on a low-scoring matchup where the lowly home team will even have a chance to win.
