The Houston Rockets made an exceptional job on limiting the Los Angeles Lakers offensively in Game 1 of the WC semifinals.

The Rockets’ sharpshooter Eric Gordon talked on the mentality when he is guarding a player like Lebron James. Gordon pointed out the need to take away the basic offensive weapon of his opponent.

The Rockets kept Davis and James to a total of six points in the last 12 minutes to get ahead in the series. The Lakers will probably make adjustments to counter react versus the Rockets.

Both the Lakers and the Rockets will play again on Sunday for Game 2 of the WC semifinals series.
