Prediction: Game is close for the first three quarters, then Harden quits again and the Lakers blow it open.

Christian Wood said he has the Lakers games circled on his calendar so he can take it to AD and said he plans to give a special performance.

What if AD doesn’t play?

I’ll take the same. I hate Houston games and that crap brand of ball. Not sure if it’s any different this season.

Let Harden score 50 if we have to. Just hold the rest of that team under 60 and we should win.

IMO it is not about what Houston brings. It is about the Lakers.

Pacing, going through the motions or taking off the night is not going to cut it.

Do they focus on defense? Do Laker stars play like stars? Does the team take on the challenges that this game will likely have. If Woods giving them some bulletin board material doesn't bring out some competitive play not sure what will.


I think the Lakers will come to play mentally and win the game, if they choose to compete.

I don't care about the W/L, I just want to see the Lakers play good defense both as a team (esp with new lineups), and at the individual level.

What is the difference between the coaching styles of D’Antoni and Silas?

I have not watched the Rockets yet this season. I usually try and avoid their games...at least the Morey/D’Antoni rockets.

I’m assuming they still give the ball to Harden and play his system, which is annoying to watch.

Lazy Sunday game. We’re probably going to coast and sleepwalk through this one. Honestly, I’m okay with the team just chilling out and putting LeBron and AD on a minutes restriction for the whole first half on this season.

Who knows. Maybe we actually show up and play like we look on paper for once and blow someone out.

Go Lakers!

They’re playing

KCP AND AD PLAY

Per Buha

Both Anthony Davis and KCP are playing and starting vs. Houston, per Frank Vogel.
