NBA Picks: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets

The Los Angeles Lakers (15-18) have lost and failed to cover the spread in all three of their games since the calendar turned to January, as they prepare to take on the Houston Rockets (20-14) at the Toyota Center Tuesday night, with the opening tip scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on NBATV.
