LeBron James leads the Los Angeles Lakers to the Western Conference finals after a play-in game from the seventh seed in the playoffs. The Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors in game 6 by a score of 122-101. The Warriors opened the game with a strong performance, taking a commanding 27-10 lead. However, the Lakers rallied and fought back, eventually taking a commanding third-quarter lead. The Warriors attempted a comeback but fell short due to poor shooting and defensive mistakes.
The Warriors’ performance was especially disappointing, with only Curry scoring 32 points at his usual level. Klay Thompson struggled, shooting 3/19, while Wiggins only scored six points. Draymond Green finished with nine points.
The Lakers, on the other hand, had a strong performance, with James leading the way with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists for a triple-double. Other standout performances came from Anthony Davis (25 points) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (15 points).
The loss may signal the end of the Warriors’ winning streak, as their performance fell far short of expectations. Meanwhile, even as a low seed in the playoffs, the Lakers have proven that they are a force to be reckoned with. They will now face their Western Conference finals opponent.
