After falling to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, the Houston Rockets will enter the Staples Center seeking to end a six-game losing streak. During their previous three games, Kenyon Martin jr. has averaged 23.0 points while shooting 61.9 percent from behind the arc.

For Los Angeles, the Lakers come into tonight’s game hoping to improve their chances to avoid participating in the play-in tournament. With the Lakers unveiling their 2019-20 championship banner, the Rockets have a chance to spoil the Lakers’ celebration. According to reports, the Lakers will be without both LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (groin).
