In their most recent game against the Rockets, the Purple and Gold had a great defensive display. Although they did miss many of their shots, limiting the high flying Rockets to 85 points meant that the Lakers had a 95-85 victory.

LeBron certainly had one of his worse games of the season so far. Shooting just 6 of 19 shots and unable to knock down any three pointers and scoring just 16 points, ‘the King’ had a quiet game, to say the least.
