Here’s how you can watch Game 1 of the Los Angeles Lakers vs the Houston Rockets playoff series online via NBA live stream at ESPN @ 9:00 pm ET.
The Houston Rockets barely edged out the OKC Thunder with Harden’s cat-like reflexes, jumping to dodge Luguentz Dort throwing the ball off of him (out of bounds) in a crucial possession. For their efforts, the Rockets will face the #1 seeded Los Angeles Lakers. Watch an NBA live stream of Game 1 online at ESPN or with Fubo TV (7-Day Free Trial available).
In three regular season (2019-2020) games, the Rockets won 2 of three against the Lakers. This includes an NBA bubble game on August 6th. However, LeBron James did not partake in that bubble game. Harden scored a blistering 39 back then without Russell Westbrook in the lineup. Kyle Kuzuma had a game high 21 points on 8 of 16 shooting, and the Lakers might look to get him the ball tonight to exploit his matchups.
Westbrook had a solid 20 point game on 9 of 20 shooting against OKC in Game 7 of the series. He’s quietly been getting rid of the rust. Meanwhile, the Lakers’ Anthony Davis put on a show against the Trail Blazers last series, scoring 43 points on 14 of 18 shooting and 9 rebounds in their elimination game. LeBron James had a triple double with 36 points on 14 of 19 shooting 10 boards and 10 assists. The Rockets will need strong perimeter play and to stretch the floor often if they hope to win, as Davis’ excellent post-defense will put a stop to easy layups and drives. Every shot will have to be earned.
