LeBron James Wins Record Postseason Game VS Rockets
LeBron James became the all-time leader in NBA postseason wins with the Lakers’ 112 – 102 win over Houston Tuesday night.
With 36 points, LeBron James led LA on its way to a 2 – 1 lead in the series against Houston.
With the victory, James moved up to 162 career postseason wins, eclipsing Derek Fisher in the process.
While he was quick to credit his teammates postgame, he started off like a man who knew he was on the cusp of history.

LeBron scored 29 of his 36 points in the first half, which is a season high for any half. While his points output dropped off afterwards, he dominated defensively, with 4 blocks in the 3rd quarter.
When asked postgame what his new record means, he was keen to praise all the teams he’s played for.
“It says that I have played with a lot of great teams,” LeBron James said.
“It says that I have played with a lot of great team-mates and some great coaches, in Cleveland, in Miami and now here in Los Angeles.
“This doesn’t happen without the supporting cast. It’s why I’m able to sit here with this achievement, but it is all about the three organisations I have been with, the Cavs, the Heat and now the Lakers, because without them, I wouldn’t be in this position.”
LeBron is right to point out that it doesn’t happen without his teammates. He and the Lakers are Finals, if not championship bound. However, they would not be in that position without Anthony Davis.
Davis added 26 points as well as a game-leading 15 rebounds to give the Lakers the lead and propel his teammate into NBA greatness.
