Tonight the Houston Rockets are hosting the Los Angeles Lakers, after defeating the eastern conference contenders the Boston Celtics.

Houston hopes to carryover the inspiring play from two nights ago, in which the young core of Kevin Porter Jr., Jalen Green, Jabari Smith Jr. Kenyon Martin Jr. combined for 86 of the 111 points, in order to get that ever elusive winning streak.

Despite Houston playing against a better team tonight, they have really good chance of winning.

This evening the Lakers are without Lebron James, Anthony Davis, and Mo Bamba. Let me repeat that for you if you didn’t read that clearly the first time.

To be fair, Houston maybe missing their big man Alperen Sengun who is remains questionable for tonights game.

However, his potential absence shouldn't be the reason for the Rockets downfall.

Anyways, let us know what you think about tonights match up below.
