Champion is having quite few players out for the begin of this season, mostly due to injuries. It should not be such a big issue for Los Angeles, but one of two superstars. Davis, will not be able to play in this part of the season. Player which made the difference in the previous year, and with the most impact of the new title for Lakers. James can not maintain high level of play alone, and without Davis, LA is just one more team on the edge of the playoffs.
Houston had a lot of changes, and they have left their playing philosophy with the coach released. Harden wanted to leave the club, but it seems that he will stay here for some time. They have brought Buggie on the center position, and turned from small ball tactics that had in the previous season. Also team added another big name with John Wall from Washington.
Looking at the roster, Rockets are having better lineup, comparing with their recent clash against Lakers in the playoff of the recent season. They may not started with the top performances, but squad have enough quality to rise, and to win games like this in Texas.
