Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers game preview

The Houston Rockets take on a familiar foe in Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Houston is on a 4-game losing streak, and LA is on a 5-game losing streak of their own. Without Anthony Davis, the team has been in free fall.

It’s surprising to me that so many were ready to crown the Lakers as the favorites in the West in the offseason after their acquisition of Westbrook. As we’ve seen in Oklahoma City, Houston, and Washington, a team that depends on Russ to play a major role has no shot at contending for a title.
