The Lakers have won three straight games since losing Game 1; coming off a 110-100 victory on Thursday. L.A. led by 23 points with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter but Houston rallied, cutting the deficit to as few as five with 59 seconds remaining. The Lakers are just a win away from making their first conference finals since winning the title in 2010.

For Los Angeles, the objective is fairly simple. Win and they advance to the Western Conference finals where a matchup against either the Los Angeles Clippers or Denver Nuggets will be on the horizon. Should the Lakers and Clippers ultimately face off against one another, it would mark the first time the two franchises have ever met in a playoff series. 

On the other hand, the Rockets have their backs against the wall as they need to run off three straight wins in order to extend their season. Unfortunately, history is not going to be on their side as LeBron James’ teams are 13-0 all-time in playoff series after jumping out to a 3-1 lead. Follow along below for live analysis of the action in the Orlando bubble. 

Yet to take a shot, @AntDavis23 just dropped off dimes for wide-open layups from KCP and then Caruso. He has 4 assists, as LAL’s lead swells to 33-11.

this is just way too easy for the lakers. they’re doing whatever they want on offense

well this is getting out of hand quickly. lakers up 23-7. lebron james has 11 and has outscored the rockets by himself. mike d’antoni takes his second time out in the first six minutes

just a brutal start for the rockets. 1-6 from the field and the lakers are up 13-2 after three minutes. this does not look like a team that’s fighting to keep its season alive

lebron to the bucket and the lakers have opened up an 8-2 lead after the first few minutes

back to back turnovers to start the game and we’re underway with game 5 between the lakers and rockets. lebron james and co. are up 3-1 and looking to close things out
