LA Lakers beat Houston Rockets 110-100.
The Lakers produced a superb defensive performance on Thursday evening to beat the Rockets.
They now have complete control of their second-round series with the win over the Rockets.
Anthony Davis went for 29 points and 12 rebounds, while LeBron James finished with 16 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists for a near triple-double.
Houston was awful for much of the game, trailing by as much as 23 points, and giving less-than-stellar effort. In the last few minutes, however, they found some life, and made an incredible comeback to cut the deficit to five points.
It turned out to be a classic case of too-little-too-late, however.
Russell Westbrook led the team in scoring with 25 points, while James Harden had 21, but shot 2 of 11 from the field.
The Lakers’ defensive effort was phenomenal on the night as they held the Rockets to 43.1 percent shooting, and forced 16 turnovers.
They’re now up 3-1, and can close things out in Game 5 on Saturday.
