A heavyweight NBA bout is in the offing on Friday morning, as the Western Conference’s top-seed, the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Houston Rockets at The Arena in the Walt Disney World, Orlando.

The Lakers clinched top-seed in the West after their 116-108 over the Utah Jazz, courtesy of Anthony Davis’ 42 point-performance. The NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year candidate was in his zone against reigning DPOTY Rudy Gobert and his side, helping the Lakers clinch the top-seed in the Western Conference after a decade.

The Rockets have been in terrific form of-late, beating the Mavericks in a thrilling contest that went to overtime and following it up with a victory over the Eastern Conference’s top-seed, the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Duo James Harden and Russell Westbrook combined for 65 points and despite a mammoth 36 points, 18 rebounds from reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Rockets emerged victorious and now sit in the fourth spot in the Western Conference standings.

Anthony Davis was the driving force on offense against the Utah Jazz

With the Lakers at the top of the NBA standings and the Rockets in fourth, this basketball match is potentially a precursor to the Conference semi-final that could take place between the two.

This is provided that the Rockets retain their seeding and both teams win their first-round matchups in the playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers vs Houston Rockets match will be live streamed as well.

Eastern Conference two-seed Toronto Raptors will cross paths with three-seed Boston Celtics on Saturday, while Antetokounmpo and the Bucks will face-off against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.
