Check out my preview in anticipation of tonight’s meeting with the Lakers for ESPNLA’s Land o’Lakers blog:
The Rockets lost the game in Phoenix when Goran Dragic went to the bench early in the first half with foul trouble. Courtney Lee has taken on the bulk of the backup playmaking duties but he isn’t a point guard. Courtney Fortson–signed to a 10-day contract–has been horrific in limited minutes. When Dragic sits, the Rockets fall apart. They need Lowry back as soon as possible if they want to remain this race.
