The Lakers play one final game at home before a seven-game road trip. The team has lost 10 of 11 games without showing much sign that a winning streak of one is near. Until the team gets at least some their injured players back (Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry), it's difficult to pick the Lakers in any game against any team. Through 37 games, the Lakers have 14 wins, two behind cumulative expectations . Tuesday vs. Cleveland Cavaliers If there's a team the Lakers have a real shot to beat this week, it's the Cavaliers.

When the Lakers (15-18) visit the Houston Rockets (20-14) on Tuesday night, they'll have to do it with less than three-quarters of their roster. Dwight Howard is out with a torn labrum (shoulder), Pau Gasol has a concussion, Jordan Hill has a hip injury and Steve Blake is recovering from abdominal surgery. The Rockets are one of the hottest teams in the league, scoring a league-high 106.2 points per game.  Houston gives up a lot of points (103.4) but as short-handed as the Lakers are, will they have enough  firepower?
