The Houston Rockets gave the Los Angeles Lakers a big headache at the Staples Center last night. It was a great game for every NBA fan, but the Lakers struggled in the first half. They even trailed the Rockets at one point of the game. LeBron James took over late in the game and led his team to a win. It was a tough battle and LA came out like the winning team. Christian Wood and Jalen Green knew what they were doing as they led the charge for Houston.
The Rockets had a 70-64 lead in the first half. Guess what… LeBron saved the best for last. The four-time NBA champion turned into a beast and hit 10 points in three minutes which pushed the Lakers to a win. The young rockets team tried to put up a fight but they couldn’t get any closer to LeBron.
LeBron James beats the Rockets with dominance
The kid from Akron finished the night with 30 points on 13-of-21 shooting from the field along with 10 assists and four rebounds. It was impossible to ignore his dominance, and LeBron was explosive in the fourth quarter. He had to do this “to bring us home and make plays.” LA got the best of the game thanks to LeBron.
Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook did a good job, too. Both players finished the night with 27 points. The big man added nine rebounds, three blocked shots, and two stolen balls. Broddie had nine rebounds and whooping seven assists. I guess this powerful trio found its groove.
Lakers players entered the regular season with a loss but they have won three straight games now. They won five of the last six games and things look good at this point. Hopefully, they will be able to keep their winning streak alive. This is actually good news for Lakers fans out there. Staples Center was fire last night and LeBron had the best performance of the night. We will be seeing more of this next game. Are his opponents ready for the win?
