Prediction and Analysis: Lakers vs Rockets 01-29-2024

January 29, 2024


Game Preview


On January 29, the Los Angeles Lakers (24-23) will visit Toyota Center to play the Houston Rockets (21-24).


The Lakers are improving as they attempt to move up the standings in the Western Conference. Los Angeles defeated the Golden State Warriors 145-144 in overtime to win their 2nd straight and 3rd in the previous 4 games. The Lakers’ winning run has improved their record to 24-23, above .500, and they are now 2.5 games behind the 6th-place Suns. If LA finished in the top 6, they would avoid the play-in round and go straight to the postseason. In common with their opponents today, the Lakers have had a difficult season traveling. Although they have an incredible 17-8 record at home, they have only won 7 of their last 22 games away from the bright LA skies. LeBron James and Anthony Davis, who both played significant minutes versus the Warriors, are both marked as questionable on the Lakers’ injury report.



Following victories over the Hornets and the Nets, the Houston Rockets are currently in second place. In terms of shooting percentage, the Houston Rockets are averaging 113.3 points on 46.2% and giving up 112.4 points on 45.7%. While Jalen Green averages 17.8 points per game and 4.7 rebounds each match, Alperen Sengun averages 21.7 points per game and 9.2 rebounds per contest. The 3rd player to score in double figures is Fred VanVleet, and Dillon Brooks is pulling down 3.5 rebounds. In terms of field goal percentage, the Houston Rockets are shooting 35.2% from outside the arc and 77.9% from the free throw line. They are pulling down 45.4 rebounds per game while giving up 34.4% of their shooting from beyond the arc. The Rockets will have to give their best performance to get a win here.
