Basketball fans will get to see the Lakers vs. Rockets live streaming online and televised matchup as rookie Lonzo Ball gets another chance to impress. This time around, he and Los Angeles will be taking on a red-hot Houston Rockets team that is on a 14-game winning streak. That has James Harden, Chris Paul, and the Rockets looking like the top team in the league right now besides the defending NBA champions. Here’s the latest preview of tonight’s game including point spread, total, start time, TV channels, and ways to watch the Lakers vs. Rockets live stream online coverage.
No team has been hotter than the Houston Rockets (25-4) right now as they’re looking to pick up their 15th win in a row on Wednesday night. The team is currently atop the Western Conference and leads the Golden State Warriors by two games. The Rockets have been a true squad of road warriors going 12-1 in away games while boasting a 13-3 record on their home court. Most recently, they took down the Utah Jazz for their 14th win of the season, 120-99. Tonight they’ll host the Lakers who include one of the most talked about rookies in recent times, Lonzo Ball, as well as their surprising top rookie Kyle Kuzma. The Los Angeles Lakers are currently sitting at 10-18 for the season and have lost three games in a row.
