LeBron James credits Lakers' supporting cast for Game 1 win

In the fourth quarter of Sunday's Game 1 of their first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies, the Los Angeles Lakers held a six-point lead.

In the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter, neither LeBron James nor Anthony Davis attempted a shot.

Nevertheless, Los Angeles cruised to a 128-112 victory thanks to a reserve player and a player who went undrafted out of college just two years ago.

Rui Hachimura tied Mychal Thompson's Lakers franchise record for most points by a substitute in a playoff game by scoring nine of his 29 points in the fourth quarter.

Austin Reaves scored 23 points on 5-for-5 shooting in the fourth quarter, including nine consecutive points late in the period.

It was our supporting cast that won us the game tonight," said James, who had 21 points, 11 rebounds, and three blocks.

The Lakers required a greater effort from their players during the second half, as the game was in jeopardy.

Davis, who finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds, 7 blocks, and 3 thefts in the postseason to become the first player to do so since Tim Duncan nearly two decades ago,

suffered a stinger to his right shoulder and was forced to leave the game late in the second quarter.
