Lebron James in tandem with Anthony Davis led the Los Angeles Lakers to their first Western Conference semifinal victory over Houston and to a 1-1 draw in the series. He had 28 points and was key in defending the triumph after his team missed a 21 point advantage.
The duel had historical dimensions for LeBron James because with the only three he scored he broke into the second position on the eternal list of the best three-pointers in the NBA playoffs. He now has a total of 386 hits for three, broke away from Ray Allen for a three-pointer, and far ahead of him on this list is the leader Steph Curry who has 470 hits from a distance.
Additionally, LeBron became only the second player in the League after 1973-74 alongside Russell Westbrook, who managed to reach such numbers in a playoff game, in this game in which he had 28 points and 11 rebounds, nine assists and two steals.
