Houston is on the brink of its first 4-0 mark since way back in 1996-97, while LA is 2-1 and trying to break through into the the upper-echelon of the NBA. Both teams have enough talent to make deep runs ion the the playoffs so long as they stay healthy.
It will also be a interesting matchup featuring Clippers center DeAndre Jordan against the league’s best big-man in Dwight Howard,k who is averaging 15.0 points, 17.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks for the Rockets, who are limiting opponents to 38.7 percent shooting.
