LeBron James totaled 37 points (14-19 FG, 2-5 3PT, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, eight assists, and three steals in the Lakers' 105-104 win over the Rockets.
Writer's Analysis: James scored 37.0 points in the Lakers' win over the Rockets, making this his second consecutive game with more than 35.0 points and his thirteenth consecutive game with more than 15.0 points. He is enjoying the beginnings of another strong year and should continue to serve as the elite multi-categorical contributor we all drafted him to be. Although James may tend to play to his high floor most nights, and although his price point may be a bit too rich to stomach at times, his production level is still competitive enough to warrant consideration in daily formats when the Lakers are on the slate, especially if it is a plus matchup. He has a usage rate of 29.3 percent, a plus-minus of 5.1, and is averaging 34.4 minutes, 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.7 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game while shooting 58.6 percent from the floor and 39.7 percent from beyond the arc.
