LeBron James paid the Rockets a pretty big compliment after Houston's small lineup bulldozed the bigger Lakers 112-97 in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals on Friday night.

"It's kind of like in the early 2000s when you had the St. Louis Rams, The Greatest Show on Turf," James said after the Lakers loss. "People always used to say how they would scout them and scout them and scout them, but until you got on the field and you saw Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt and Marshall Faulk and (Az-Zahir) Hakim and all those guys. And you were like, 'OK, we need to play them again,' because there's no way you can simulate that speed. So, getting out on the floor and having a Game 1 gives you a good feel for it."
