HE SAID IT: Jay Williams thinks Houston could beat Lakers in the playoffs

ESPN’s Jay Williams says Houston’s small-ball gives the Rockets a chance against the Lakers should the two meet in the Western Conference playoffs, and Williams likes their chances. Kendrick Perkins also noted that Houston has two MVPs in their prime in James Harden and Russell Westbrook. The Rockets moved up to No. 4 in the Western Conference with Sunday’s 119-116 win over Milwaukee, and if that holds, they could potentially meet the Lakers in the second round of the playoffs.

Why they said it: Houston took down a Miwalukee team that owns the NBA’s best record just a few days after the Toronto Raptors beat the Lakers, which got ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith calling out the Lakers too. But the Bucks only shot 9-of-35 from behind the arc and outrebounded the Rockets by 29 and still only lost by 3. But Houston’s a wild card. They tied the NBA record for most 3-point attempts in a regular season game with 61 on Sunday, but missed 40 of them! But, do they beat the Lakers in a series? Don’t bet on it. With the playoffs a couple weeks away, expect more silly season talk until the real games begin.
