Game 1: Rockets sumagitsit sa   Lakers, 112-97

 
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Maaring katiting ang laro ng Houston Rockets, ngunit  hindi nila ginamit ang laki para lang madetermina ang katatagan. 
 
At sa Game 1, ang kanilang istilo ay naging sanhi ng malaking sigalot para sa  Los Angeles Lakers.
 
Tumipak si James Harden ng 36 points at nakatakas ang Rockets sa Lakers 112-97 Biyernes ng gabi, ikalawang sunod na yugto na ang No. 1 seed sa Western Conference ay nabigo sa   opener.
 
“It doesn’t matter how tall you are. If you have the heart and you’re a competitor you can be out there on the court,” ani Harden.
 
Nagdagdag si Russell Westbrook ng  24 points, 9 rebounds at 6 assists, at Eric Gordon ay may 23 points para sa Rockets, ang No. 4 seed na may isang araw lang na pahinga matapos kinailangan ang pitong asignatura para manalo sa kanilang first-round series.
 
Pihadong hindi nakitaan ng pagkapagal,  umariba sa buong gabi para punuan ang laki ng kakulangan na kanilang kinakaharap na small-ball style. Pinuwersa ang  17 turnovers na kumadkad ng  27 points at nakipagsabayan sa bruskong  Lakers maging sa  backboards.LP
