I have to admit: I remember thinking, "Damn, the Rockets are gonna be the first team LeBron plays at home?" and feeling like there could have been a more fun matchup there. 1) I was quite wrong. 2) The league is gonna be unreal this yr.

Also in the fourth quarter, impressive job by Carmelo Anthony to be a plus-12 in 8 1/2 minutes while going 0 for 4. Rockets almost had to score every time he didn't shoot it.
Any other situation, that 1-for-8 fourth quarter for LeBron in his highly anticipated home debut while Harden takes over the game is the story. The fight makes it all but unnoticed.
Lost in what happened in Rockets-Lakers? That was a 1-for-8, 6-point clunker of a fourth quarter for LeBron James.
This is still the first week of the season, man.
Brandon Ingram could’ve been hit with three technical fouls there. Might’ve had to borrow one from his next game, whenever that is.
