The Los Angeles Lakers have finally broken their 10-year wait for NBA championship No.17 as they clinch the 2020 title by beating Miami Heat.
LeBron James’ outfit putting on a defensive clinic to claim the finals series in six.
The Lakers crushed the Miami Heat 106-93 in game six, with James netting 28 points,
14 rebounds and 10 assists, and Anthony Davis 19 points and 15 rebounds.
It was a championship win unlike any before, played in the midst of a pandemic
in a quarantine bubble after a lengthy mid-season hiatus.
The champions in waiting led by 28 points at halftime and while that deficit would
be cut to 13 by the end of the fourth, it was a game the Lakers dominated from start to finish.
Despite being outclassed on the night, the Heat never let up until the final whistle,
showing the grit and determination that saw them take out the East and push
this series to a game six.
LeBron James was voted the MVP as Lakers celebrates their triumph having
been rocked with a sad news in January as the basketball world and western culture
in general was rocked by the death of NBA and Lakers great Kobe Bryant.
