NBA - Top 5 stars of the night (28th November, 2019)
We had a great night of basketball in the NBA, right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Many top teams from both the Eastern and the Western Conference had great displays in the last round. From all the players, 5 stood out as the most impressive ones, and we are going to analyze them here:
#5 Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook has faced quite a lot of criticism this season, as his performances from the start of his run for the Houston Rockets were not as impressive as many experts believed they should have been. Well, the former Thunder star put on a great showing against the Miami Heat.
Westbrook finished the night with 27 points for Houston, as well as 9 rebounds, and 7 assists. He was vital on both offense and defense for the Rockets'. At many instances during the game, he acted as the main engine of the team. If he can keep up the form of play showed in this match, then the Houston Rockets are going to be an extremely dangerous team this season.
#4 LeBron James
While he was not the best player for the Los Angeles Lakers last night, LeBron James put on a great show in New Orleans, against the Pelicans, and deserves a spot in these rankings. James reached 33,000 points scored in the NBA during the game and he became the youngest player in history to hit that milestone.
He finished the match with 29 points scored, after a great 4th quarter showing. In addition to this, he had 11 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. LeBron was extremely important for Los Angeles both on offense and defense. His tandem with Anthony Davis is the main reason why the Lakers have the best record in the association right now.
