Rockets are now 21-14 thanks to a new win to try to make post season.

On the other hand Lakers are questionable for post season as they dropped their fourth straight to fall to a poor 15-19 record.

They are in the 11th place in the tough Western Conference.

On the beginning of the game The Rockets did not  withstand great strain made by Lakers as the Lakers led 18-4 early after a play where World Peace hit two 3-pointers and Darius Morris made one.   ” Get a hold of yourself dudes ” ! said coach Kevin McHale.

Houston listened to the coach and used a 12-5  slashing spurt powered by two 3s from versatile Delfino to cut the lead to 34-28 at the end of the first quarter. Rockets finally trailed by 3 at halftime . Los Angeles lead 62-59.

And Texas Men found their path in the second half to overcome a biggest  Lakers lead of 14. Houston scored a total of 66 points after the half while Lakers scored only 50.

A team built with Kobe Bryant , Steve Nash, and Metta World Peace must be better to play basketball at high level.

But chemistry is not working in LA ! What’s the problem ! Nash has shared well the ball since four games with four double double ! Something needs to change quickly before the end of the regular season. Post Season shows his face slowly but surely.

To win this game Houston was carried by a slashing James Harden at the top his game behind 31 points on 11-for-19 shooting.

A perfect production with the charity stripe with 8 throw connected. He is now 300 free trow made.

Chandler Parsons added 20 and Jeremy Lin chipped in 19 points. Harden matched Moses Malone’s franchise record for most consecutive games with at least 25 units. Harden has 13th consecutive 25-points production.

He should top this record in the next game vs New Orleans. Harden has averaged an inspiring 29,4 points during this 13 games.

For the Lakers , World Peace had a season-high 24 points. The best scorer in the league dropped only 20 points and Nash had a double double with 16 points and 10 dimes. Nash recorded his 10,000 career assist on an A.Jamison basket with 19,6 seconds remaining in the season quarter. He’s the fourth fastest to reach that mark.

He needed 1162 contests including 10 games with the purple and yellow jersey.

Lakers were playing this game without their strong towers, D.Howard, P.Gasol and Hill, missing all the game because of injuries.

He became the fifth player to surpass 10,000 career assists , joining a prestigious club held by John Stockton,  who breast-fed  Karl Malone to record a great record of 15 806 assists. Jason Kidd,  who is the best active player in career assists numbers is the second best in this list.

This list includes also Mark Jackson, the current coach of  the surprising rising Golden State Warriors squad who is doing a remarkable job to push this team.

Last but not least , you find in this list Magic Jonhson, who accomplished an impressive career in Lakers as a versatile point guard able to play everywhere in the court ! Steve Nash, joined this club, because he has talent !
