It's been quite a week for the Los Angeles Lakers with trade rumors swirling around many players on their roster. The team suffered a 42-point loss to the Indiana Pacers just days ago and had to visit the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. However, LeBron James was in the lineup and his team actually fought their way out of an 18-point hole to ultimately claim a buzzer-beating win. Here are the top 5 performers from Thursday's Lakers vs. Celtics game.

1

LeBron James - Los Angeles Lakers

Often times, LeBron is the driving force behind a team's victories. He was a major factor in tonight's win as he recorded a triple-double just days after suffering the worst loss of his NBA career. LeBron scored 28 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and gave out 12 assists in the close win. One of his biggest buckets of the game was a three-pointer from the corner to tie things up with under a minute to go.

Rajon Rondo - Los Angeles Lakers

Rondo was the hero in tonight's victory for the Los Angeles Lakers. His stats were impressive as he tallied 17 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds. However, he was in the right place at the right time. As Brandon Ingram failed to make an under the basket layup to win it, JaVale McGee batted the ball out to Rondo who got the shot off just in time to win it.
