LeBron James played like the future Hall-of-Famer that he is on Saturday, leading the Lakers to a Game 5 victory, ending the Rockets' playoff hopes with 29 points (9-of-18 FG, 8-of-10 FT).
James flirted with a triple-double, recording 11 rebounds, seven assists, three treys, two steals and one block in 31 minutes. Now, the Lakers can take a much-needed breather as they await the winner of the Clippers-Nuggets series. Both James and Anthony Davis have been regular mentions on the injury report, so hopefully, these extra days of rest will allow both stars to rest and recuperate.
