Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers travel to play against the Houston Rockets in an NBA matchup March 20. This will be the first game that veteran guard Derek Fisher will be suited up in a Houston Rocket uniform against his former team the Lakers. Fisher was dealt last week to the Rockets after playing 14 seasons in LA.

The Lakers are currently in first place in the Pacific division with a 28-17 record. That puts them in third place overall in the Western Conference playoff race. The Rockets have played well this season but are currently amidst a tough stretch and are 24-22 overall. They are in fourth place in the competitive Southwest division and are hanging on to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

The Lakers are led by All-Star Kobe Bryant who leads them in scoring and assists, and is currently leading the league in scoring with an average of 28.7 per game. The Rockets are lead by Kevin Martin who has scoring average of just over 17 points.

The Lakers hold a 7-3 SU advantage over the last 10 games the two teams have played head to head. The Rockets are 6-4 ATS in those same 10 games. The total has been OVER in 6 of the 10 games. Over that span, the Lakers are averaging 2 points more per game than the Rockets and the two teams are combining for 196 points per game. The Lakers won the only meeting thus far this season 108-99 in Los Angeles. They covered a 7 -point spread as a favorite in that game and the total ended OVER.

The Lakers have won 7 of their last 10, while the Rockets have lost two straight and 7 of their last 10. The Lakers will win this game both SU and ATS on the road against the Rockets. Look for the total to be OVER.
