The Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (33-24): Starting center Clint Capela (thumb) is expected back in the lineup after missing the last 15 games. Houston badly missed the big man, who is averaging 17.6 points and 12.6 rebounds, even though the club added power forward Kenneth Faried, who has eight double-doubles in the past 10 games. “It felt great,” Capela told reporters about the thumb after the team’s practice at USC. “I was really happy about it, so now I’m ready to go.”

ABOUT THE LAKERS (28-29): James has been part of the playoffs for the past 13 seasons and he doesn’t intend to miss out during his first season in Los Angeles. The Lakers will rely on the 34-year-old even more than they have been as coach Luke Walton attempts to find the proper balance to keep fresh James. “We know we have who we view as the best player in the world on our team, but we also know that it takes a team to win,” Walton told reporters. “So we expect him to lead us and we expect the other guys on the team to continue to make plays and help us win games. This league is too tough to do it by yourself.”

Oddsmakers opened the Rockets as -2.5-point favorites versus the Lakers, while the game’s total opened at 233.

James Harden aims to resume his high-scoring ways when the Houston Rockets visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday. Harden scored at least 30 points in each of the last 31 games to tie Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain for the second longest such streak in NBA history.

The Rockets are 21-10 since Harden became a one-man band and the star guard indicated he wouldn’t mind a return to normalcy. “The scoring streak is obviously amazing, but it’s something that I just had to do because of our situation,” Harden told ESPN. “We had all the injuries and guys in and out of the lineup and things like that. So I think the streak just started happening, and now it’s like something to talk about.” The Lakers lost 10 of their final 15 games before the All-Star break and are hoping a fully healthy LeBron James can help improve the fortunes. “That’s the job, that’s our goal,” James said of ending the franchise’s five-season playoff drought. “It’s been our goal from the beginning of the season and it’s still our goal. We’re working our tails off to get there.”
