Ron Artest was at it again. It wasn't quite the same impact as wearing boxers while fielding talk-show questions from Jimmy Kimmel , but the Lakers forward attempted another comedic touch after the Lakers lost in Houston on Wednesday. He pretended to be Rockets forward Luis Scola after he was handed a cellphone by a Houston radio-show employee in the Lakers' locker room. "They asked me to do an interview ? 'Can Ron Artest come on 540 [AM]?' ? or whatever station.

Luis Scola, Argentina forward, whose national team plays the United States today in the FIBA Tournament of the Americas: 'We go out there and play to win like we play every game. Maybe we lose by 50, maybe we win, who knows, but we have to go out there and compete. That's why we are here.'

Houston at Lakers, tonight, 6:30, Fox Sports West What do the Lakers' first four opponents have in common? None was over .500. If it's time for a bigger test, they're in luck, with the Houston Rockets here tonight. Challengers don't come much bigger with 7-6 Yao Ming, left, 6-7 260-pound Ron Artest and a sturdy supporting cast that includes physical players Luis Scola and Carl Landry. The X factor is Tracy McGrady, coming off arthroscopic knee surgery that limited him to 12 minutes in the preseason, obliging the Rockets to learn to play together as they go. This is the third of a five-game trip for the Rockets that began, agonizingly enough, when Portland's Brandon Roy beat them with a 30-foot three-pointer at the buzzer.
