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.

NBA finals 2020: Los Angeles Lakers clinch 17th title after 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.
