Heavyweights of the Western Conference will be going up against each other as Houston Rockets face LA Lakers in the regular season of the NBA on Saturday. The Rockets have proven how far they can go if their superstar James Harden is putting in these stellar performances. He is single-handedly making sure that franchise is relevant in the Western Conference table. With some injuries to key players such as Chris Paul and Clint Capela, Harden has got more on his plate in order to make sure The Rockets win games and stay in the playoffs race.
Meanwhile, LA Lakers too are in the same trajectory. They have the best player in the world in LeBron James in the roster, but he has been out for nearly a month now. In his absence, the team has won and lost every other game. Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram have taken turns in order to lead the franchise to big wins recently, but this is going to be the biggest test for them as they take on someone as formidable as the Rockets.
