Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets will meet today, May 12, at 10:30 pm (ET) at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles for the 2020/21 NBA season. Here, you'll find all the match information, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game.

The Los Angeles Lakers will continue to try and avoid the play-in tournament when they host the worst team in the NBA, the Houston Rockets. Then again, you can't take anything for granted or underestimate your rivals when the season is on the line.

LeBron James will give the Lakers a much-needed boost but there are still serious concerns about his health and conditioning ahead of the playoffs, so Frank Vogel may choose to rest him on the second night of a back-to-back.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Houston Rockets: Storylines

The Los Angeles Lakers could end up being the greatest eight seed in NBA history, featuring LeBron James, Andre Drummond, and Anthony Davis. That's, of course, assuming that they'll lose the 7-8 seed game and beat the winner of the 9-10 game in the play-in tournament.

The Houston Rockets aren't likely to compete for a playoff berth in 5 years or so. They have the worst record in the NBA and a roster consisting mostly of role players and injured veterans, so they're just trying to plan ahead to the upcoming Draft.
