LeBron James scored 26 points as the Lakers blew past the Rockets 117-100. This included a look-away 3-pointer from the corner.
LeBron James carried on his spectacular form, as he scored 26 points and grabbed 8 boards in the Lakers’ win over the Rockets tonight. On his way to lead the Lakers to a victory, LeBron James seemed to be getting innovative.
Tonight, he took a page from Curry’s playbook. On a possession, the King took a three from the corner after relocating there. As soon as he let it fly, he turned to his bench and stared at them. Classic Curry move.

LeBron James pays respects to Stephen Curry and his no-look threes
If anyone has been watching Stephen Curry and his plays, the only thing he wants is respect. ‘Respect the Shooter’ has always been the main motto. However, getting respect from LeBron James has never been an issue.
LeBron always treats his opponents and rivals with the utmost respect irrespective of who they are. After all those Finals battling against each other, the respect LeBron has for Curry is high.
After the game, when LeBron spoke to the media, they obviously asked him about the shot and made a connection to Steph. There LeBron praised Steph and said Steph being the shooter he is, the same shot would go for him 10 out of nine times.

James will definitely be feeling himself after the Lakers moved to a .750 record after 12 games with a 9-3 record. Everyone expected them to dominate the league this time, and they’re performing exactly in line with expectations. It is hard to picture any team beating them 4 times out of 7 tries in the playoffs.
