In their last five personal games, Houston have won three wins. In the five previous matches, which teams played among themselves, the total of 216.5 points was broken twice. The Lakers are currently leading the series 2-1.
The management of the club invited Russell Westbrook from Oklahoma to lead the team to the final and compete for gold medals together with James Harden. Michael D'Antoni's wards passed the Thunder in the first series of the playoffs, although they had to try hard.
In the second round, Houston faced the Lakers and so far things are not going well. The rivals held three meetings, although the Rockets celebrated the victory only in one of them. The team is aiming to equalize the score in the series and since there are no special problems, a real battle awaits us.
The Lakers are playing for the final of the West with Houston and have already held three meetings. LeBron James and Anthony Davis did their best to be comfortable before their fourth bout, although they lost to the Rockets at the start (97-112).
Frank Vogel's guys are well aware that now is the moment when you can put the squeeze on your opponent, though you can hardly count on an easy victory, because after two defeats in a row, the "rockets" are motivated more than ever.
We assume that Michael D'Antoni's guys will play aggressively and force the opponent to act at high speeds, so we expect an effective confrontation.
Our prediction is total over 216.5 points for 1.68 odds in bookmaker 1xBet
