Houston Rockets Form

Houston go into this game on a 10-game losing run after last night’s blowout defeat in Los Angeles.

The Rockets snapped a five-game skid on December 26 with a 133-118 win in Chicago, but they have failed to build on it.

They immediately returned to losing ways with a 126-102 defeat at Boston, and they then lost 129-114 in Dallas.

Houston returned home for back-to-back home losses to New York and Dallas, before heading to New Orleans for a third consecutive defeat.

Home games against Utah and Minnesota saw them fail to snap their skid, and the losses continued last week as they lost twice in Sacramento before getting blown out 1210-100 by the LA Clippers. 

Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles go into this game looking to end a three-game skid that has cooled their early 2023 form.

The Lakers ended 2022 with a 130-121 win at Atlanta and then built on that in their first game of this year, beating Charlotte 121-115.

They then returned home to beat Miami 112-109 and Atlanta 130-114 to keep their good run going.

Los Angeles made it five-in-a-row with a 136-134 win at Sacramento on January 7, but they have not won since.

The Lakers’ run was halted by a 122-109 loss to Denver, and they then fell to home defeats against Dallas (119-115, 2OT) and Philadelphia (113-112).
