In this episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I talk about the Lakers 110-100 win over the Houston Rockets to take a 3-1 lead in their 2nd round playoff series.
We dive into how this was the best full team effort of the series, and maybe, the entire playoffs to this point. With 6 players scoring in double figures and multiple role players having a real impact in the win (Caruso!), we talked about how satisfying this win was even though the Rockets were able to mount a late game comeback that wasn’t so great.
In the final part of the pod we discuss that run, too, and whether it can be a precursor to game 4 for Houston while also going long on some of the Rockets playoff issues in this series (and in past ones).
