LeBron James and Anthony Davis praised Los Angeles Lakers rookie Talen Horton-Tucker for his performance in Game 4 vs the Houston Rockets.

Horton-Tucker had five points on 2/5 shooting in the game, but offered solutions on both ends and was a key to the Lakers’ win in Game 4.

LeBron mentioned how impressed he was with “The Rook,” @Thortontucker, for stepping into a playoff game like that at 19 and playing so well.
