Houston

In their last five personal games, Houston have won three wins. Since the start of the playoffs the Lakers have lost just one match. Last season the Rockets reached round two.

The Lakes did not impress with anything special after the restart of the season, although Frank Vogel's guys knew perfectly well that they would go to the playoffs from the first place, where the most interesting began.

The Lakers had to play five rounds in the first round of the playoffs to replace Portland, which simply lacked the strength and Damian Lillard and company could still have struggled. Of course, attacking monsters like LeBron James and Anthony Davis are extremely difficult to act against, especially when they are in great shape.

The Los Angeles team understands that they are not the easiest opponent and will not be able to play half their strength against Houston, so you need to get ready for a real fight.

Houston

The Rockets really had to work hard to make it to the quarterfinals, as Oklahoma turned out to be an uncompromising opponent and tickled their nerves well.

It seemed to Michael D'Antoni that he had to built a great game, although every time the Thunder, led by Chris Paul, found the key to victory and did not let Houston go. Everything was decided in the seventh match of the series, when there was a real cut on the floor, but that evening, luck was on the side of James Harden and the company (104-102).

If the Rockets continue to act so unstable, they are unlikely to stay long in the playoffs, because the Lakers will clearly take advantage of such opponent's mistakes.

Prediction

We assume that Houston will continue to make mistakes, although with players like James Harden and Russell Westbrook the team must endure everyone, but so far the game is not very good.

There was a moment when the Lakers were also nervous, but quickly recovered and after losing to Portland did not lose a single game. In our opinion, the "lakes" will keep a high pace and will not leave any chances for the Rockets.

Our prediction is the victory of the Los Angeles Lakers taking into account the handicap (-3) points for the odds of 1.52 in the 1xBet
