After being smashed by the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday (January 15), the Houston Rockets caught a break Sunday at the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant.
Interesting enough the Rockets will continue in Los Angeles to face an even more stern challenge tomorrow night against the Los Angeles Clippers.
A pleasant game to watch for all the wrong reasons, the Rockets and the Lakers traded baskets at will with absolutely no concern for the defensive side of the game as the final score shows. Of course when you play against the 29th ranked offense in the league it becomes much easier and the Rockets had no trouble stopping the Lakers after halftime.
