Rockets’ Chris Clemons Replicated Lakers’ LeBron James

Especially in the playoffs where you can face a team up to seven straight games, coaches do everything possible in planning to deal with what the other team has to offer. In the case of the Houston Rockets trying to prepare for the Los Angeles Lakers, it meant trying to replicate what LeBron James and Anthony Davis bring to the table.

Of course, when you’re talking about one of the greatest players in NBA history in James, the idea of trying to prepare for and replicate his skillset is basically impossible. Teams tend to turn to their bench players in these roles, and for the Rockets that meant 5’9 guard Chris Clemons had the task.
