Rockets need double overtime to escape Lakers 148-142

Rockets need double overtime to escape Lakers 148-142

The Rockets ended 2017 with a bang. It may not have been the prettiest win, but the Rockets were able to gut out a 148-142 win against the Lakers on New Years’ Eve, snapping a five-game skid. The game was knotted up at 142 with seconds to go where an offensive rebound and putback by P.J. Tucker put Houston ahead for good. The go-ahead bucket were Tucker’s only points in the contest, but it could not have come at a better time for Houston. The Rockets played both overtime periods without James Harden, who strained his left hamstring in the waning seconds of regulation. Despite a...

Lakers vs. Rockets Final Score: Chris Paul polishes off Lakers in 148-142 double-overtime thriller

This was the game that never ends. Until it did, with a Lakers lose. The Los Angeles Lakers almost made it two trips to Texas in a row with an upset victory over the Houston Rockets, but Chris Paul would put the finishing touches on the Lakers in a 148-142 double-overtime thriller. The Lakers gave one of their best efforts in the last few weeks, but couldn’t snap their losing streak to cap off 2017. Gerald Green nailed the three-pointer that forced the first round of overtime off a dime from Chris Paul. The Lakers had a chance to take the final shot with 17 seconds on the game clock,...

Clint Capela expected to return today

Clint Capela expected to return today

The Rockets have a key player returning to the lineup for tonight’s contest. Not a moment too soon, Rockets center Clint Capela is expected to return the starting lineup in tonight’s contest against the Los Angeles Lakers. Already beset by injuries to starting point guard Chris Paul (who has since returned) and versatile bench wing Luc Mbah a Moute (who has not), the Rockets received a gut punch when they found out Capela would miss two games with a orbital fracture. Capela had just returned to the lineup after missing some time to a heel bruise, and the impact on the Houston defense...
