Friday night saw the Rockets draw first blood in the best-of-seven series and tonight they can take the stab they made in Game 1 and twist it into a 2-0 lead.

However, the Lakers won’t go away easy in this series. The team is still the best team in the West throughout the regular season and they haven’t proven that they should be stripped of that title yet.

Tonight is all about the adjustments the Lakers need to make in order to prevent the result from Game 1 to happen in Game 2. If the Rockets can continue to push the pace and defend stoutly like they did Friday night, they will double their lead in the series tonight.

Enjoy the thread and enjoy the game!

Go Rockets!
