a Los Angeles Lakers Returned to the Western Conference Finals NBA. In a true home run on Friday (12), LeBron James won a home run Golden State Warriors by 122 to 101 and got the rating.

With the victory, the LA franchise clinched the series at 4 to 2 and secured a return to decision after three years.

After winning at home, the Warriors traveled to Los Angeles to secure a survival for the second time in the series. But the start wasn’t what the defending champions had hoped for. With Klay Thompson below average, Curry was trying to balance action with the Lakers, who opened up to a 17-point lead.

If, on the one hand, the ball insists not to fall, on the other hand, danger comes from nowhere. A highlight of the first half, Austin Reeves capped off a ball from midfield at the end of the first half, taking a 56-for-46 lead at the break.

As if the blemish wasn’t enough, the Warriors came back into the second half with another concern, with Jordan Paul hitting four fouls. Despite going over one side, it was Dennis Schroeder who ended up being ejected after provoking Draymond Green.

Despite the absence of the German point guard, who helped dictate the pace on the court, the Lakers shot to the scoreboard, leading 14 points before the last period, with LeBron already courting a three-pointer.
