Lakers defend Rockets with hands behind their backs

Lakers defend Rockets with hands behind their backs

James led the Lakers with 29 points, five rebounds and four assists. Harden picked up his second triple double of the season. Willingly wearing the suit shorts for Game 2 despite all the criticism was a bold choice, and perhaps that also nets James a few extra points. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 113 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting.

The Lakers scored six straight points, highlighted by a dunk from James, to get within 74-72 midway through the third quarter.

SuperSonics vs. Rockets, March 1969: Lenny Wilkens (36 points, 14 rebounds, 14 assists), Art Harris (14 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists).

Harden attempted 19 free throws.

Harden took himself out of the game for a couple of minutes in the fourth quarter.

The German legend became the only player who played for one team for at least 21 seasons. However, with this report, we can rule out anyone from the young core being moved for a player like Trevor Ariza, who has been linked to the Lakers.

Mr Rees-Mogg also said it is "not impossible" that, on reflection, Mrs May would decide to stand aside soon. On specifying question of journalists, whether it means that she is retiring, may answered in the negative.

The Lakers were frustrated for excessive whistles.

The Lakers have informed teams that have called about trade proposals that they will not give up any of their young core unless it's for a superstar player, one person said.

Early in the National Basketball Association (NBA) home game against the Los Angeles Lakers, he sped past Lonzo Ball, dashed down the lane and threw down a massive dunk over JaVale McGee and left the centre sprawling across the floor.

Harden's 50-point haul isn't even his biggest display of the season after racking up 54 points against the Washington Wizards in November.

It was the first meeting between these teams since Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo got into a fight on October 20 that led to suspensions for both players and Brandon Ingram. "You got to try to keep your hands out of the cookie jar".

"How hard is it to play defense like that?" "They were just trying to make a point: 'We're not using our arms here. And I thought tonight was an example that we could've done things better". No foul was called, prompting Walton to get on the officials and earn his tech. At one juncture, LeBron James started defending with his hands behind his back. "So just trying not to touch them".
