The Los Angeles Lakers won Game 1 against the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors and now have home-court advantage in this series, creating one of the most anticipated matches of this year’s playoffs. Suppose the Warriors respond by rebounding like they did against the Sacramento Kings. LeBron and the Lakers and LeBron has shown us all why purple and gold should never be underestimated, no matter the circumstances!
The Warriors made 21 threes out of 53 attempts, which is impressive, yet their total of only six free throws was astounding – especially Stephen Curry who only attempted one foul line shot for this event!
Steph scored 27 points, Klay scored 25, and Jordan Poole contributed 21, Poole missed a long three to tie game and narrowly miss.
Kevon Looney continued his paint dominance with 23 boards but couldn’t properly defend Anthony Davis. Overall, it was an enjoyable game, but the Warriors couldn’t come out victorious due to a free throw differential; we didn’t mention that Los Angeles took 29 shots from the foul line!
D’Angelo Russell hit a three on the other end to give Lakers their first win of this series and bring home victory in Game 1 of their opening contest.
Anthony Davis once again was the focal point, scoring 30 points and collecting 23 rebounds while dishing five assists and blocking four shots (one on Steph Curry in the last minute making an important impactful statement about himself and his team compared to LeBron). With all due respect to LeBron, Anthony Davis truly represents the heart and soul of the Lakers team.
James had 22 points with 11 boards, while Denis Schroder scored 19 off the bench, matching Russell in points scored. Overall, the Lakers only made six threes out of 25 attempts but managed 53 boards – an impressive feat!
The Warriors are in a must-win situation, so expect Step Curry to go off. Take the warriors and give the points.
