Lakers Vs Rockets VIDEOS: Attention On Steve Blake, Not Dwight Howard

The anticipation for Wednesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets was centered around Dwight Howard’s return to Staples Center, for the first time since his departure. Despite Howard boos from start to finish, the Los Angeles Lakers ended up losing the game in embarrassing fashion, 134-108. Yet, the attention after the game was centered around the trade that sent Steve Blake to the Golden State Warriors right before game-time. After the game, head coach Mike D’Antoni said he was disappointed to see Steve Blake go. Jordan Farmar says Blake is a great guy off the court and hopes to see him playing in the play-offs.

With the NBA trade deadline ending tomorrow, Jordan Hill says he’s not worried. Whether or not he gets traded, he feels his energy fits in “anybody’s system.” Lastly, Howard’s return to Staples Center wouldn’t be appropriate without the media crowd around him post-game. Check out what Howard had to say about hearing the boos echo throughout Staples Center and where he thinks the Lakers will be in the future.
