HIGHLIGHTS: Lakers vs Rockets - NBA Playoffs 2020

There’s no letting up for the Los Angeles Lakers now. 

After stringing 3 straight wins, the Lakers look to close it out against the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of their NBA playoff series on Saturday, September 12 (Sunday, September 13, Philippine time).

An LA victory would propel the Lakers to the Western Conference finals for the first time in a decade – their last stint going way back in 2010 when the late Kobe Bryant still led the team. 

But LeBron James and Anthony Davis need to make sure the Rockets don’t get their high-powered offense going, just like in Game 4 where James Harden shot a woeful 2-of-11 from the field.  

Also adding drama to the Rockets’ campaign was the absence of forward Danuel House – who already missed their last two games – as the league, on Friday, ruled him out for the rest of the playoffs for violating the Orlando bubble’s health protocols.

Yet there are players who don’t find it daunting to climb from a 1-3 series deficit, and count the Rockets’ MVP duo of Harden and Russell Westbrook in.

Game time is 8 am.
