Harden and Westbrook have the top NBA numbers with averages of 31.9 and 26.8 in the last few seasons. Still, it won’t be easy for the Rockets to actually win and predictions say it will be 50-32 for them in the next NBA season.
Los Angeles Clippers
LA Clippers are having some of the best players in their team and yet they suffer from one major problem. Kawhi Leonard can’t play 80 games or there is a risk of injury due to his 2017 case. Paul George is still kind of recovering from his shoulder surgery and it will take him some time to heal.

Clippers don’t have other reliable names and hence it would be kind of average numbers for them. The analysts believe Los Angeles Clippers will have something around 53-29 in the NBA 2019-20 season.
Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James and Anthony Davis are the best NBA duo in the LA Lakers team. But their performance depends on the other players and Danny Green is the only reliable name right now. DeMarcus Cousins is also a great player but his performance depends on his health and fitness.

Kyle Kuzma, Rojan Rando, and Avery Beal are still kind of average players in the Lakers. If the James and Davis magic works, then the Lakers could get near to 55-27 for the next NBA season.
