The Los Angeles Lakers are normally excellent at switching on screens, but the Houston Rockets are uniquely equipped to attack that. In this installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at how Houston utilized their numerous shot creators to render that strategy ineffective, what the Lakers tried to do to counter that, and the adjustment that Houston made that effectively ended the game.
The goal of Laker Film Room is to provide Lakers fans with consistent, thoughtful content that helps you enjoy the game on a deeper level. I’m able to do that because I don’t work for a publication that demands that I cover the most sensational material, which typically gets the most views and clicks. As a result, I rely on the support of Lakers fans to help me produce my work. If you believe in what I do, please considering support my work on either Venmo or Patreon.
