jackson shouldn't have let fisher start. seem like they got toxic shock syndrome.
but it seem like jackson ain't too much worry about his team losing the game in the first quarter. the next three quarters where rockets trash time.

We are dazed and confused but we are still here. The Lakers have to play because we are not going away. Gasol needs to be aggressive from get go, I don't think we can stop him if he brings it from the start of the game. I think that the Lakers will win the series but I no longer think the Lakers are a shoe in to win the Ring. We are missing Yao and T-Mac and we still won. The Lakers showed little character in game 4. Go Rockets

Today is a very bad day for die-hard Lakers fans. This Lakers team has no determination, and frankly either very arrogant or very stupid. Arrogant because they think w/o Yao all they have to do is show up and the Rockets hand over the game. Stupid because this is playoffs basketball, when an opportunity presents itself, you have to take full advantage of it. The coaching staff already warned about Yao not playing, yet they still came out playing like zombies. When the players are deaf and dumb no matter what the coach preached, they still would not be prepared, very unprofessional.

That elusive championship remains out of reach the way they are playing.

OVERCONFIDENCE!(that's in all caps now)- that has been the Lakers' woes ever since. Of course, they will win Game 5 at Staples... but better watch out if somethin' freaky(take note!) happens in that game 'coz it will make them lose game 6 again in Houston. That's the price they will have to pay for not burying the Rockets when they had the chance in Game 4! Cavs fans: let's relax, have a break and enjoy the Lake show!!!

why in the hell the lakers waited 4 quarters before tightening their defense???? if they're going to be this way, they might as well kiss their championship hopes good bye 'coz the cavs will not be merciful to them in the finals....

So does anyone think the Lakers are embarrassed enough by their performance or lack in the Sunday game to get to the business to kicking butt in the next games ??

not taking anything away from the rockets but lets get freaking real. The refs gave the rockets both of there wins. How many free throws is # 24 getting? Zero in this loss and 5 in the other lets get real here. the Nba is fake anyways , it's Turned into the WWF ill predict Lakers Cavs final.

Go Rockets! Never underestimate us. Cocky Lakers thought becuz Yao was out, they had the W in their column. Rockets may lose game 5 in the Staples Ctr, but rest assurred when they come back home on Thursday their fans will be their cheering them on. Even if the Rox don't go on to win the championship, I hope like heck they put the beat down on the Lakers. Too much hype and not enough heart. GO ROCKETS!!! GET RED!!!

dude take off your fan goggles the refs were your 6th, 7th and 8th man out there. Your telling me that Kobe who got double and tripled teamed all series is not getting fouled once ina while ?

Thats so sad that the refs call touch fouls on are guys and you can chuck hayes smacking gasols arms and artest and shane grabing and nothing is called this series has been a joke . All because the Nba wants to make buzz and try to make more money

LOL!! when a game is won by 20+ points (because let's face, the game was a lot worse than the 12 point difference indicated) you cannot blame the referees. man up and admit that the Fakers were outplayed and outcoached by the Rockets. if the Rockets do somehow end up winning game 5 in Staples (they have done it before) the Lakers can prepare to go fishing after game 6.
