This is a game featuring two explosive offenses and very poor defenses. The Lakers have been a very disappointing team this season with an overall record of 15-18. They are just 5-10 on the road this season. After a promising start with Steve Nash return to the lineup LA is now just 3-4 straight up with the veteran point guard in the lineup. A major problem developed for the Lakers following their 112-105 home loss on Sunday to the Denver Nuggets. The team will be without three rotation players tonight in Houston. Center Dwight Howard is out with a shoulder tear, Pau Gasol will not play due to a concussion and Jordan Hill has a hip injury. Howard will be out for the week and Gasol will miss this current two game road trip. The Rockets are the top offense in the league with an average of 106 points a game. Houston returns home with a four game win streak after winning back to back road games at Milwaukee and Cleveland. James Harden leads the Rockets in scoring this season with 26 points and 45% shooting in 38 minutes on the season. Point guard Jeremy Lin after a shooting slump to begin the year is shooting 43% from the floor and 12 points per game average. Lin is dishing 6 ½ assists per game and has got his turnovers down this season with only 3 per game.
