None the less, Rockets came out and played better defense and offense. Without T-MAC, they cannot go very far. They just don't have enough offense..
This may be true, but in the 4th quarter kobe was taking some pretty terrible shots. Before Houston took over in the final minutes Kobe had multiple oppurtunities to tie or take the lead. Instead of driving to the basket and getting fouled, he took low percentage shots while being guarded very well. When he became agressive and drove to the basket it was too late. Trust me i'm probably the biggest kobe fan on bimmerpost and I have to admit he played that game horribly. Hopefully he'll do better in game 2. Lakers in 6.
