LeBron James had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Los Angeles Lakers Alex Caruso after Game 4 vs the Houston Rockets.

Caruso had 16 points (5/9 shooting, 2/5 from beyond the arc) in the game and also hit the three-pointer that sealed the deal for the Lakers late in the fourth quarter (108-100).

“We have so much confidence in Caruso. For him to be in this postition (coming out of the G-League a few years ago), to be on this platform for a team competing for a championship, I think his confidence is growing and growing.

A guy we know we can count on, (that) doesn’t make many mistakes on the floor,” James told reporters afterwards.

The Lakers lead the series 3-1. Game 5 is on Saturday.
