The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets Tuesday night 112 to 102 to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference Semifinals.

The Lakers were led by LeBron James who scored 36 points and became NBA’s all-time leader in playoff wins.

Los Angeles played some great defense and double-teamed Houston's star James Harden. Harden had a strong effort with 33 points but it wasn’t enough to get the win. What do the Rockets need to work on before Thursday to avoid falling behind even further in this series?
