The Los Angeles Lakers 2014-2015 season has started off sour and gone downhill quickly from there.  Just a few days after learning that Steve Nash would be lost for the year, the team opened up Tuesday at home against Dwight Howard, James Harden, and the Houston Rockets.

The game was never really competitive, as the Lakers fell behind by 12 at the end of the first quarter, and trailed by 17 at the half.  After a brief rally in the third, the Lakers were routed, 108-90.

To add injury to insult, prized rookie forward Julius Randle sustained a major leg injury while playing during garbage time late in the fourth quarter.
