LeBron's having a tremendous season, the Lakers are sitting as the No. 5 seed in the West, and he's yet to miss a game this season. Carry on.

Advice: Thanks to the contributions of some of his teammates James didn't have to do much heavy-lifting in the scoring department, making more than half of his field goal attempts.

James missed both of his attempts from beyond the arc, going without a three for the first time since he went 0-of-4 in a November 27 loss to the Nuggets.

The Lakers are still 15-10 and they're in the thick of the playoff race, which should help LBJ avoid any precautionary rest.
