GameThread: Rockets @ Lakers; 8:30 CST

Your Rockets take on the Los Angeles Lakers againt this evening. I have no idea if anyone else is going to post a preview, and I've got a paper to write (I get to quote Steve Kerr's dad!), so I'll make it quick.

The Lakers were blown out at home on Friday, and conventional wisdom (and that feeling in my bones) tells me that they'll come out firing tonight. At the same time, the Rockets lost to the Kings in Sacramento after their offense didn't perform to expectations and their defense blew. Both teams have something to prove. The Rockets need to show that they really are the team that started the season so strong, and the Lakers need to regain their status as the top team in the West.

And if you're a betting man/woman, I'd go with the "over" tonight.
