Rockets Crush Lakers 118-95 for 7th Straight Win

posted by Andrew Pisano - 

James Harden had 36 points, 9 assists, and 4 rebounds in Sunday night's victory over the Lakers to extend their winning streak to 7.  

Houston and L.A. were tied at 27 after the first quarter, but Harden and friends ran away with the game in the second quarter, putting up 34 points and holding the Lakers to 19.  

This is the Rockets' 6th straight road win by at least 15 points, which is interesting because every team that has done that before them went on to be NBA Champions.  

Chris Paul was great, finishing with 21 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds.

Ryan Anderson went to the locker room after tweaking his lower back in the 2nd quarter, and would not return for the rest of the game.  

Eric Gordon also played very well scoring 22 points, with 20 of them coming in the first half.

The Rockets road trip continues when they face the Utah Jazz Thursday night.
