The Houston Rockets won the game against the Charlotte Hornets in the American Basketball League (NBA) with a score of 128-119.

Turkish star Alperen Şengün, who plays for the Rockets, made a vital contribution with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal, helping his team achieve its first victory of the season.

After losing their first three games, this victory was a turning point for the Rockets.

An impressive derby took place in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Lakers managed to defeat their rival Los Angeles Clippers 130-125 in overtime with a huge performance by LeBron James of 35 points and 12 rebounds.

In the Clippers, although Kawhi Leonard was the most productive name on the field with 38 points, he could not prevent his team from losing.

Paul George’s 35-point contribution could not prevent defeat, and thus the Lakers ended their streak of 11 consecutive losses against the Clippers.
