The Lakers won three of four games in Week 19, climbing above .500 (33-31) and into a potential playoff seeding. The coming week will be a difficult one with three out of four on the road, including games on successive nights, in Orlando and Atlanta.  They'll visit one of the league's top defensive teams in the Indiana Pacers  before coming home on Sunday to play the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers gained a game but are still three losses below the cumulative predictions for weeks 1-19 . Tuesday at Orlando Magic Dwight Howard makes his return to Orlando on Tuesday in what will undoubtedly be an emotional game.  The Lakers center left the Magic under difficult circumstances.  He should expect to be roundly booed throughout the game.

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?
