Before making any Lakers vs. Rockets picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The model knows the Lakers are more talented and established than the Rockets. Los Angeles is shooting more than 53 percent from two-point range this season and 46 percent from the field, ranking in the top ten in both categories. The Lakers also put constant pressure on the rim, getting to the free throw line nearly 22 times per game. Opponents are also shooting only 34 percent from three-point range against Los Angeles, with the Lakers creating more than 15 turnovers per game on defense this season.

The model also knows the Rockets have a youthful roster, but Houston is very strong in a few areas. The Rockets are leading the NBA in free throw volume on offense, ranking in the top eight of the NBA in two-point accuracy and second-chance points. Houston is also above-average on the offensive glass and in generating points in the paint. Houston is also above-average in three-point defense this season, and the Lakers are committing a turnover on more than 15 percent of offensive possessions.
