Second half effort slightly better but overall still embarrassing
The second half effort for the Lakers was slightly better than the outright disappointment of the first half. I did get my hopes up for a moment when they cut the deficit to four points but my hats off to the Rockets as they once again showed their resilience and responded to the Lakers challenge by defeating them 95-80. Overall the night was still an embarrassment for those on the basketball court wearing a Lakers uniform but the bright spot is that they have the opportunity to fight another day. Game 7 should be another adventure to say the least. The fun begins on Sunday at 12:30 pacific.
