After their miserable start, the Rockets are back in the game. They tied it 29-29 on Mike James’ 3-pointer midway through the second quarter and now they have tied it again at 31. The Lakers got in some trouble once they went to the bench, while the Rockets’ transition seemed much smoother. Evans, Cook, Farmar and Bynum are a combined 1 for 7 from the field. There are six minutes remaining in the half.
