NBA Odds: Rockets vs. Lakers FREE Picks

Houston’s return to run and gun with no defense is not an encouraging sign for the playoffs. They had played surprisingly good defense for the past two years before reverting back to their old ways this NBA season. Los Angeles has impressed all with their complete play but the irony is that their home court value has never been good when they are good. The public perpetually blows up their value.
