“I never came into the league as a kid saying, ‘I want to be number one in playoff wins.’ I always said I want to be a part of a winning culture and be a winning player and do whatever it takes to help my team-mates win and this is the result of it.
LeBron James (29 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists) led the way at the Walt Disney World Resort as the Lakers reached the conference finals for the first time since winning the title in 2010 thanks to a 4-1 series win.
The Rockets, led by James Harden’s 27 points and double-doubles from Russell Westbrook (10 points and 13 rebounds) and P.J. Tucker (18 points and 11 rebounds), outscored the Lakers 41-23 in the third quarter but a 27-17 final period in favour of the Lakers saw Houston fall.
On top of the list is Stephen Curry at 470. LeBron may be ageless, but he’s not playing long enough to catch Curry. Not even close. Klay Thompson is fourth on that list and may pass Allen and LeBron eventually.

— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) September 11, 2020 Houston – who overcame a 3-1 deficit in the second round of the 2015 playoffs – put together a 18-2 run to close within 103-96 but the Lakers managed to hold in in Orlando, Florida.
And now that the offseason is here, the speculation about coach Mike D’Antoni’s future will ramp up. His contract with the Rockets is now complete, the sides couldn’t agree on terms of any extension a year ago, and he’s been mentioned as a candidate for the vacancies in Indiana and Philadelphia.
