Last year, this would be a 25 point loss. This year, even without AD, we played a great game. The difference is defense.

welp, I said we'd come back in the 2nd half and indeed we did. It is always a good time to see the Rockets lose

Nice bounce back game for Kuzma (23 points, 8 rbs) & Danny Green (20 points, 5 rbs, 4 steals).

Very nice win. Second half d was much tighter, better energy...honestly rockets didnt impress too much they shoulda been up more in first half with how Lakers were playing

Regardless love the win. Great job!

This game reminds me of the 2nd game we played the Cavaliers in the Q and broke their undefeated home streak in 2009. Down in the 1st half, we figure out how to D them up and complete lockdown 2nd half. Oh yea in that game Lamar Odom destroyed them too.

Caruso and Dwight tried their best to help the Rockets win yet they still failed.

We didn't play like crap. We just didn't hit shots. Our defense kept us close enough to take the lead when the shots started falling. Houston never could establish a big enough lead.

We are lucky we didn’t have Rondo. The 2nd unit continues to play better without him.

Houston is a bad matchup for Clippers, they doesn't have enough defensive guards to stop Harden and Westbrook which Lakers has plenty.

If anything, this game showed rondo is important, we don’t win that OKC game without him either
AC struggles big time today
