Do people really watch what's going on with the #Knicks and #Lakers and feel like what the #Sixers are doing is killing the league?

Remarkable that the Hawks' 16-game win streak is still not half of 1971-72 Lakers' NBA record 33 straight. #ATLHawks

Post game Lakers Line w @amartinezla now! "@ErikRivera: Just got back to LA and my homie @Beto Duran is doing live Q&A on #BigTime"

Ramona Shelburne

FWIW, I saw Nick Young leave Staples Center on Sunday night. He was with a member of the Lakers community relations department.

Gary Lee

Nick Young is the least of the Lakers' problems right now. RT @Ryan Ward: Nick Young left without speaking to us. Not good.

Mark Medina

There was some skepticism Young left because he has a bunch of shoes still at his locker. But Lakers say he's gone

Baxter Holmes

Lakers say they believe Nick Young is gone for the night. If so, he left without speaking to reporters after being benched at halftime.

Mike Trudell

Running diary from a rough night for the Lakers against Houston: on.nba.com/1D8bjbk

Eric Pincus

Lakers actually out-shot the Rockets 43.0% to 40.2% - but LAL missed 12 of 13 three-pointers (7.7%) to Houston's 13 of 44 (29.5%)

Janis Carr

Lakers drop their eighth consecutive game, lose to Rockets, 99-87.

Baxter Holmes

Final: HOU 99, LAL 87. Lakers have lost eight straight, matching their longest skid since they lost eight straight from March 14-27, 2005.

Rodrigo Azurmendi

FINAL: Lakers 87, Rockets 99.

Mark Medina

Lakers lose 99-87 to Houston. This marks the team's eighth straight loss.

Mike Trudell

Final: Rockets 99, Lakers 87. Boozer had 18 and 11 off the bench, Lin 14 (10 FT's) and 6, Ellington 13 and 5. Harden had 37/8/5.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 99, Lakers 87. Harden (37 points) was awesome, but Rockets did not play very well. They will need better vs Dallas on Wed.

Beto Duran

All smiles, Dwight chants along to "Howard sucks" chant from Lakers fans

Eric Pincus

Rockets 99 - Lakers 87 - that'll do for the night

Mike Bresnahan

Lakers fans uncork a "Howard Sucks" chant. He's on the Rockets' bench in a light blue suit, out with a sprained ankle.

Baxter Holmes

Loud “Howard Sucks” chants from Lakers fans. Howard is smiling, singing along, asking for fans to be louder.

Ryan Ward

Scratch that. 37 points for James Harden. Lakers have NO answer for the player likely to replace Kobe as the West All-Star starter.

Eric Pincus

Corey Brewer corner three should give the Rockets enough breathing room - Lakers haven't quit on this one yet

Rodrigo Azurmendi

Lakers recortaron el déficit a 11 antes del triple de Corey Brewer.

Janis Carr

Lakers making a run at the Rockets, closing gap to 11 pts. Rockets had led by 25.

Kurt Helin

James Harden just whipped a pass baseline into the Lakers bench. I wonder if he saw the red "fit" shirts out of the corner of his eye.

Gary Lee

Players don't tank and the Lakers were competitive for the most part, but this new lineup change that will last 15-20 games? Nope.
