That was fun.
In perhaps the biggest upset of the NBA season, the visiting Los Angeles Lakers – who were starting three rookies due to the absence of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Brook Lopez – snapped the Houston Rockets’ 14-game winning streak in stunning fashion, 122-116.
In this installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at Kyle Kuzma’s extraordinary, career-high 38 point night, the contributions of Corey Brewer and Larry Nance, as well as the quality help defense that made the Rockets a one-man show.
The goal of Laker Film Room is to provide Lakers fans with consistent, thoughtful content that helps you enjoy the game on a deeper level. I’m able to do that because I don’t work for a publication that demands that I cover the most sensational material, which typically gets the most views and clicks. As a result, I rely on the support of Lakers fans to help me produce my work. If you believe in what I do, please considering support my work on either Venmo or Patreon.
