Kuzma's late basket gives Lakers 3rd straight win

LOS ANGELES (AP) Despite missing LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers are keeping alive their slim hopes of trying to avoid the play-in tournament.

Kyle Kuzma's driving layup with 6.9 seconds remaining gave the short-handed Lakers a 124-122 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

The defending NBA champions have won three straight for the first time since the middle of March, but remain in seventh place in the Western Conference.
