The turnovers and hesitation to shoot from beyond the arc really hampered the Rockets’ game tonight. They need to work on being more decisive with their passes and their confidence in shooting.

For the Lakers, this performance comes as a tremendous relief after a series of close games that went down to the wire. Carmelo Anthony had an impressive performance, he will look to continue his performance if he aims to move up the all-time scoring list.
