The Lakers return home after a brief trip up north, where they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 107-95 on Friday. They have won three of their last four games and have a 7-6 record, and perhaps they’re starting to figure things out after a poor start to the season. Los Angeles shot 41.4% from 3-point range in that contest, and although it got rebounded by four, its defensive rebounding seems to have improved at least somewhat.
Houston had won six games in a row after losing its first three games of the season until its winning streak was ended on Friday by the struggling Los Angeles Clippers. Former Rockets star James Harden burned his old team by converting a four-point play in the final seconds.
The Purple and Gold will be looking for revenge after getting blown out by the Rockets 128-94 less than two weeks ago.
