Los Angeles Lakers vs Houston Rockets Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Playoffs Game on Thursday September 10th, 2020.

 

Anthony Davis Los Angeles Lakers
26.1 PTS, 9.3 REB, 3.2 AST

Davis is probable for Thursday's Game 4 against the Rockets due to a right rib contusion, Jonathan Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll reports.

Davis continues to be listed as probable ahead of playoff games, though he was probable ahead of Game 3 due to a finger injury, so he picked up something new in Game 4.

Regardless, we should expect the All-Defensive First Team selection to see the court. In the series, Davis is averaging 28.3 points, 13.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 37.3 minutes.

James Harden Houston Rockets
34.3 PTS, 6.6 REB, 7.5 AST

Harden notched 33 points (11-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 7-7 FT), nine rebounds and nine assists in 38 minutes during Tuesday's Game 3 loss against the Lakers.

Harden came just one board and one assist away from what would've been his first triple-double of the current postseason, a feat he hasn't accomplished since a Mar. 7 loss at Charlotte.

Harden has scored 30 or more points in six of Houston's last eight games, but he has been very accurate when doing so -- he is making 49.1 percent of his shots during that eight-game stretch.

 

Los Angeles Lakers: Facts and current form

The Los Angeles team arrives toned and calm at this Game 4, after beating the Texans 102-112. He has added 2 victories in a row that have allowed him to regain confidence after having lost the first match of the series.

Now the goal of those led by Frank Vogel is to add another victory that practically sentences the key, since a hypothetical 3-1 would put the Rockets on the ropes.

So far, LeBron James and Anthony Davis are playing well, proving it by almost always scoring 60 points between them. Special mention for the experienced point guard Rajon Rondo, who once again had an outstanding performance by scoring 21 points and distributing 9 assists.

Most likely, the Lakers will get between 25-28 units per period and between 105-115 overall.

Houston Rockets Facts and Current Form

The Texan team arrives beaten to this duel, after losing Game 3 and adding 2 losses in the series. Now the goal of coach D’Antoni is to make the necessary adjustments so that his boys can break through the iron defense of Los Angeles.

James Harden played a good game, scoring 33 points, but still lacks anthological performances. From there, furthermore, Russell Westbrook scored 30 points and improved his performance after playing Game 2 very badly (terrible shooting selections in the final stretch of that game).

Special mention to Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker, who had a bad day shooting and did not contribute what they always do when they play (10 and 3 points respectively).

The logic indicates that the Rockets specify between 24 to 27 points per quarter and between 100 to 110 throughout the 48 minutes of play.
