Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers game preview

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets look to start a late winning streak tonight when they welcome LeBron James and Los Angeles Lakers.

LA is 39-38 and suddenly just two wins behind the Clippers for the sixth and final guaranteed playoff spot. When LeBron went down a month or so ago, that seemed like an impossibility.

LA catching the other LA would obviously benefit Houston as it would push the Clippers to the play-in and give Houston a better draft pick in their swap with the Clips/Nets.

What are you hoping to see tonight? Sound off in the comments.

Tip-off is at 6pm on AT&T SportsNet Southwest
