We’ve already had injuries to LeBron and other rotation players, we’ve only had 1-2 months to gel, and we’ve won 4 out of our last 5. The league is officially on notice.

This was the most pathetic effort in a victory I've seen in a while. The offense was pure dog crap. I'll take the W, but it should've been a 40 point win.

A win is a win, but not being able to hold 25 point leads is embarrassing.

Thank goodness I did not watch this one as Lakers win 95-85. Lots of saltiness in the thread and I'm sure if I watched I woulda added even more. Will try and view replay to see if I can stand it.

Team don’t usually hold onto big leads like that. Every team is giving their best efforts against the Lakers so there’s that as well

Interesting that our most efficient scorers were Carmelo Anthony and DeAndre Jordan tonight.

Melo 23 points on 14 shots, 2 steals and 4 blocks. Nice effort. Not bad at all.

Melo and DAJ 12 for 18 shooting, 5 for 8 from 3.
Everyone else, 27 for 78 shooting, 4 for 23 from 3.
Not that this tells the whole story, just an interesting stat.

Still, 15 steals by the Lakers, Rockets with 25 turnovers, I sense some effort and maybe a little focus on defense from the Lakers? Granted the Rockets were terrible. Can't complain about holding the Rockets to 85 though, in spite of the lackluster 4th quarter.

Bet them to score over 100.

They went scoreless for like 3 minutes in the 4th haha.

Great defensive win tho.

Giving up the big leads isn’t because of great play by the other team though.

Lakers go through these stretches where they lose focus on both ends. Giving up easy baskets and rebounds and simply playing stupid and inefficient offense.

Frustrating to watch. This is a veteran team that should not be having these lapses.

But a win is a win! Keep it rolling
