Who would have thought that a team would go 22 – 0 during this NBA season. Well maybe one of the elite teams such as the Lakers, Spurs, Pistons, or Celtics but the last team anyone thought were the Rockets, especially with the injury to Yao. With the Lakers losing Gasol for a few games with a minor ankle sprain, that meant Kobe Bryant and his teammates were going to have to step it up. I forgot Kobe need his big man to win. No Gasol or Bynum means a guaranteed Lakers loss against an elite team. Yes, i used the words elite tam and Houston in the same sentence.
The Lakers will bounce back once Gasol gets back into the lineup. This Tuesday will be another great task for Houston because they must face the Celtics. Sorry Houston fans but the streak is going to come to an end this Tuesday night. A little history note all the Houston Rockets fans out there, T-Mac does not know how to make it out of the first round of the playoffs. Enjoy the streak because the LA Lakers will easily make it to the Western Conference finals while the Houston Rockets lose in the first round of the NBA playoffs in April.
