Iman Shumpert is just waiting for his next call up. The Houston Rockets were dominated all evening long by the Los Angeles Lakers as LA took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Rockets are now on the brink of packing up and leaving Orlando as they face elimination on a critical Game 5 on Saturday. Shumpert, a former NBA champion with the Cleveland Cavaliers, is out there reminding everyone (especially the Rockets), that's he an old reliable they can count on.

“I'm 38 percent from 3 in the playoffs and the knock on me is that ‘Iman can't shoot'?” Shumpert tweeted. “I'm around.”

Shumpert has been on five playoff runs with three different teams including his last stint with the Rockets in last year's post-season. The Illinois-native converted 8 of his 21 three-point attempts in the Rockets' second-round series against the Golden State Warriors before exiting the playoffs. His last team was the Brooklyn Nets which waived him late last year.

Though the Rockets shot okay in Game 4 from long-distance (42.4%), they needed a fourth guy to really step up, especially since the Lakers seem to have all the answers.

The usual contributors were virtually absent Thursday. Both PJ Tucker and Robert Covington were lacking in offensive productivity all game long for the Rockets. Covington finished with just 3 points, making his only three-point attempt while Tucker ended up with none and missed all four field goals.

It didn't help the Rockets' cause that guard Danuel House missed his second straight game as the NBA continues to investigate his peculiar situation.

Given how much the Rockets rely on the three-ball, they might want to consider signing the vet on a 10-day to help their cause.
