After dropping their fourth consecutive game on Monday in a loss against the Charlotte Hornets, the Houston Rockets will try to end their four-game losing streak tonight against the reeling Los Angeles Lakers.

For a team that is missing four players due to the NBA’s Health and Safety protocol, the Rockets will receive a much-needed boost within their depth with the return of Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr.

The Lakers are coming into the Toyota Center seeking to end a losing streak of their own after dropping five straight games. The Lakers had three days off since losing to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, 122-115 Christmas day. Despite the losing, LeBron James is still playing close to his peak, averaging 28.0 points over the previous five games.
