Rockets Looking for 14th Straight Win

Is there any stopping the Houston Rockets (24-4 SU, 15-12-1 ATS)? They’ve won 13 straight games at 7-5-1 ATS since Chris Paul made his return to the lineup. The Rockets have another winnable game coming up Wednesday night. They clash with the Los Angeles Lakers (10-17 SU, 13-14 ATS). The game tips off at 8 PM ET on NBA-TV.

Oddsmakers have the Rockets as 15-point favorites and the total is sitting at 226.

Paul and the Rockets have already defeated Los Angeles once during this hot streak. When they met at Staples Center on December 3, Paul had 21 points and six assists.  He was one of three Houston players to top the 20-point mark. They beat the Lakers 118-95.

The Rockets easily covered the 12.5-point spread. James Harden led all scorers with 36 points, while reigning Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon contributed 22 points off the bench.

The Lakers were close to full strength for that game. They’ll be missing one of their key starters for the rematch. SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope isn’t allowed to leave the state of California because of a legal matter.

The 3-and-D specialist has been one of LA’s better players this year. He scored 16 points in the first game against Houston, connecting on four of his seven 3-point attempts.
