But McHale didn't seem so sure the 36-year-old Bryant would be able to rebound from another potential season-ending injury, this time a torn rotator cuff in Bryant's right shoulder suffered last week in a loss at New Orleans. "Eventually, this catches up to you, man," McHale said Sunday before the Rockets beat the Lakers 99-87 at Staples Center. "Kobe's a great player, but I've seen other great players. When your time's up, your time's up, man. It's too bad, but it happens to everybody. "I wish him all the best. I've always admired him.

The Golden State Warriors, who have the best record in the NBA, beat the Houston Rockets, 126-113, on Wednesday. The Warriors had a 20-point lead at the half and things got chippy in the third as Steph Curry was called for some sort of offensive foul.
