I Think I Need a Thread About Lakers-Rockets

CREDIT:

I’m a bit behind the curve here, but wonder what people make of the Lakers-Rockets series? Mostly I think it bodes very, very, very ill for LA’s ability to defeat more offensively potent teams like Denver and Cleveland. The Lakers will almost certainly win this series, since Houston’s ability to score enough points seems dangerous dependent on Aaron Brooks scoring at a volume that there’s no evidence he can consistently deliver. But a championship-caliber team ought to be able to render the rotation Houston is currently fielding totally impotent on offense. And the Lakers can’t.
