Notebook: Rockets 145, Lakers 130


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Apr 09, 2014 2:19 AM - Updated Wed Apr 09, 2014 2:19 AM

THE FACT: The Rockets and Lakers combined for 275 points, the most in a non-overtime game since the Suns and Warriors combined for 284 on March 15, 2009.

THE LEAD: In a game that featured the type of pin-pricked defense usually seen in an NBA All-Star Game, the Rockets didn't get caught up in the apathy that seems to have overtaken the Lakers. They put up the NBA's most points in non-overtime game in four years, running away with the 145-130 victory at Staples Center.

James Harden and Terrence Ross scored 33 apiece for the Rockets (52-25), while Nick Young had 32 for the Lakers (25-53).

THE STAT: Lakers point guard Steve Nash moved past Mark Jackson and into third on the NBA all-time assist list, trailing only John Stockton and Jason Kidd.

TURNING POINT: The Lakers won the second quarter to pull within five at the half and were still within three in the opening minute of the second half when the Rockets decided they had enough, scoring 42 points in the last 9 ½ minutes of the third quarter to surge ahead by 25 heading into the fourth.

QUOTABLE: "They started playing like a playoff team and we kind of slacked up."
--Lakers guard Nick Young

HOT: The Rockets shot 57.7 percent and that was without one of their highest-percentage shooters in center Dwight Howard, who missed his ninth game in the last 11 with a sprained ankle but is expected to return Wednesday in Denver. The Houston starters combined to shoot 39-for-61 (63.9 percent) with James Harden and Terrence Jones combining to shoot 23-for-33. Isaiah Canaan sparked the reserves with 15 points for the second straight game, the first time he has reached double figures in consecutive games this season. The Lakers finished with their highest point total of the season. Young and Jodie Meeks, who scored 30 on 12-for-21, did their part.

NOT: The defense for the Lakers seems to be going from bad to worse. They surrendered 80 points in the paint and gave up nine more points than they ever had against the Rockets in serious history. They've allowed at least 107 points in each of their last five games, all losses.

QUOTABLE II: "The second half we weren't competitive at all and we lost our spirit somewhere along the line."
--Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni

GOOD MOVE: Jones was three points shy of his career high when he hobbled off the floor in the third quarter, unable to put any weight on his left leg. Fears were eased when it appeared Jones had just suffered a cramp, but Houston coach Kevin McHale didn't take any chances and kept him out of the remainder of the game.

BAD MOVE: Nash might officially be done for the season after re-aggravating the nerve-root irritation in his back that also affects his hamstrings. He didn't play in the second half after accumulating three points and five assists, exactly when he needed to pass Jackson. The bigger question now is: Will Nash try to come back for an 18th season?

NOTABLE: The Lakers confirmed after the game that they agreed to a multi-year contract extension with general manager Mitch Kupchak, who succeeded Jerry West in 2000 and has helped L.A. to four NBA championships. ... The Rockets scored 49 points in the third quarter, their highest-scoring quarter of the season.

UP NEXT: For the Lakers, Friday vs. Golden State, Sunday vs. Memphis, Monday @ Utah. For the Rockets, Wednesday @ Denver, Friday @ Minnesota, Saturday vs. New Orleans.
