Full story: LA Daily News

Some team will challenge the Rockets and better them in all sorts of ways. The Lakers won't be that team, though.

I want to comment on Fisher's remarks "They are to be commended for the way they come to work every game and do whatever it takes to get the job done," Lakers guard Derek Fisher said. "That says a lot about them and who they are and their abilities." Apparently he did not know how to apply this for himself and the rest of his team mates, because he wasn't able to adjust his defense (leading to all those 3-pointers that Alston shot over him and Farmar, and whoever else got to guard him). The Lakers were playing like a below.500 team and thay deserved to lose - end of discussion. Whenever there's hot shooters in the opposing team (especially 3-point-shooters), you DO NOT LEAVE THEM ALONE. Stick to them like glue and have the coach determine whether to put someone else on the hot shooter if he can't stop him, but don't leave him in the game guarding who he can't guard.

Fisher was right. The reason the Rockets are winning had alot to do with TMAC, scoring or not, but alot to do with the way they all play the game. This is a team. A guy like TMAC that will defer his game and do what is best to win. Unlike Kobe, who tried to win it by himself when Odom was killing us. Thanks for the favor. LOL Thanks for not taking adv of being in the penalty for nearly the entire 4th quarter. Thanks for NOT playing like a team. LOL
Lakers may be without talent. So aren't most teams at times in the season. Don't use it as an excuse. Use it as an edge, like the Rockets are.
Rockets are #1 for now. I love it.

the rockets may not get a ring this year but the lakers aint either and bad calls it looks like to me the lakers just got shut down battier locked down kobe and skip was draining 3s from downtown and he was rocking sasha vujacic so bas he had no choice but to foul. the rockets are hot right now and i believe the are going to keep winning the streak will stop eventually but they are still making history

I agree with you that the Rockets probably won't win the title, but I think the Lakers are legit contenders for it. Once everyone comes back from injury, the Laker lineup is pretty crazy.

As for Sunday's game, you have to give it to Battier...he did a hell of a job on Kobe. Also, there was no perimeter D on Alston.

Vujacic needs to get his confidence back and be "the machine" once again. Lakers need to stop worrying about the injuries. They need to stop using the injuries as an excuse. There is no reason why they can't play defense.
