The Rockets are attempting to move up the bracket in a crowded Western Conference playoff picture, with the team (almost, never quite, Iman Shumpert is out with a sore knee) at full health. Clint Capela returns tonight for the Rockets, after missing 15 games.
The Lakers are trying to preserve their playoff lives, after their power move to attempt to get Anthony Davis and Lebron James to play the rest of the season 2 on 5 failed.
The Lakers are currently in 10th place in the Western Conference. You’d think a season adding Lebron James, but missing the playoffs, would not sit well in Los Angeles.
Tonight’s ref is Tim Donaghy protege Scott Foster. His recent history reffing Rockets losses is...extraordinary. You can read about Foster’s felonious sensei here.

Do the Lakers make the playoffs.

Yes. Lebron activates Ultimate Broness, plays 50 minutes a game.
No. The Activation, while awesome, isn’t enough to drag this team up the standings.
They’d better, as Luka will take Lebron’s place any moment now.
