Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets
The Lakers split their first four games, while being led by Nash Gasol, who are patiently awaiting Kobe's return. Nash could cause problems for the Rockets as point guards who can penetrate and find open men have picked Houston apart already this season. Don't expect Nash to play as brilliantly as Paul did, but he can definitely make things tricky. Houston's first two games looked great, before running into the Clippers, who showed that the biggest issue for the Rockets this season is going to be defense. They seem to be lackluster on the defensive end, and unless they can get some much needed energy there, they will have what many would consider a disappointing season.
