The Lakers beat Miami 106-93 in regular time to win their 17th overall NBA championship. They are currently tied with the Boston Celtics in most NBA championships who also have 17 overall. LeBron led the scoring board of the Lakers with a triple-double of 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.
LeBron had predicted before that this would be the toughest title to win ever, but they got the job done anyways. He won his fourth career NBA title doing it with a third different franchise. And he did this against the former team that actually showed him how to become a champion.
The league’s bubble chapter that happened after nearly 5 months of suspension has finally come to an end. In this very year, the NBA registered shocking losses, first was the former NBA commissioner emeritus, David Stern. He is the man that made the NBA what it is today and he died on January 1.
Then on Jan 26, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and 7 other people died in a helicopter crash. The Lakers said they were playing in Kobe’s Memory from that day forward and have now taken the championship home.
By half time, game 6 was over with the Lakers taking a 64-36 lead into the break. The Heat never led at any point and shot only 33% from 3 point range. Whatever the Heat did didn’t matter because the Lakers outscored them 36-16 in the second quarter. All this happened with LeBron making only one shot in the period.
The Heat had a 23-8 run that got them to 69-90 with 8:37 left in the fourth quarter but the outcome had been settled already. The Lakers knew they had the win.
