The Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled for a thrilling start of a new series of the Western Conference Semi-Finals against the Houston Rockets at 9:00 A.M. on September 5, 2020 (PHI time) live from the AdventHealth Arena in Orlando, Florida.
The top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers are about to have a thrilling battle against “The Beard” and his Rockets squad.
Despite the slow start from LeBron James in Game 1, he averaged triple-double numbers after 5 Games against Portland Trail Blazers. His dynamic duo, Anthony Davis who averaged almost 30 points per game in their battle against the Trail Blazers, might have a big impact to the Lakers since because the Rockets has no pure center in their lineup.
On the contrary, the Rockets came from a long series against the Oklahoma City Thunder where they have reached 7 games. Harden merely averages a double-double in their meetings against the Oklahoma City Thunder where, he also scored almost 30 points per game and is averaging about 8 assists per game. His long-time teammate, Russell Westbrook, who despite not playing the first four games in the first round, scored 20 points in Game 7 and averages nearly 15 points per game since Game 5.
