Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers once again took the Warriors to overtime only to lose again. Kevin Durant hit the game-winner after the Lakers had a chance to win it in regulation after Kyle Kuzma tied the game with a three on the night Kobe Bryant got both of his numbers retired.
Los Angeles has lost its last three games that have gone to overtime.
The Lakers are playing some competitive games against good teams. They just have to have faith that some of these close games will eventually turn into wins. As someone watching on the outside, I feel confident that they will.
Lonzo Ball has shot a lot better from the field in his last five games with a true shooting percentage over 50.
Nevertheless, the Lakers have lost their last three games and now have to travel to Houston and then Golden State so no matter how well they play, the streak will almost certainly hit five.
Houston was down by nine in the fourth quarter to Utah the other night and then went on one of the most spectacular runs any team has gone on this season.
The Rockets ended up winning by 21.
Chris Paul remained undefeated with his first triple-double of the season and Clint Capela came up one rebound short of a 20-20 game (he originally had the 20-20 before the official scorer took away one of his rebounds and gave it to Paul, which got him his triple-double).
The Cavaliers and Thunder lead the NBA in isolation points this season. If James Harden were his own team, he’d be third on the list. He has more isolation points than 28 teams in the NBA.
Houston has two games at home against each one of the teams from Los Angeles. If it takes care of business as a huge favorite in each game, it will have a 16 game winning streak when it travels to OKC on Christmas Day.
The Rockets go to Boston on the 28th if they survive the Thunder.
