Call it showmanship, call it extraordinary spatial awareness, but LeBron James took his performance to a whole new level against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.

After 2018 MVP James Harden's reported trade request fell on deaf ears and their opening game was postponed, the Rockets are 3-6 so far after back-to-back losses against the Lakers.

After the blowout defeat on Tuesday -- in which the Rockets trailed the Lakers by as much as 30 points at some stages -- Harden called the situation of the team "crazy. "

The 31-year-old has won the NBA's scoring champion title for the past three seasons, but has failed to score more than 20 points in four straight games, his longest such run since 2012.

With Kyrie Irving missing for his fourth straight game due to personal reasons, the Brooklyn Nets had to rely on another superstar to help them out of a hole on Tuesday night.

More postponed games

Meanwhile there have now been six NBA games postponed this season, due to the league's health and safety protocols.

Wednesday's scheduled home game at TD Garden versus the Orlando Magic was called off after the league said in a statement that testing and contact tracing within the Celtics organization has left the team short of the eight available players required by the NBA for the Celtics to take the court.
