How the Lakers won the title

It was a close series, but in the end, the Lakers came out on top. Here’s a look at how they won the 2021 NBA Finals.

The Lakers won the first game of the series 92-84. The second game was much closer, with the Lakers winning 111-108. In the third game, the Lakers pulled away in the fourth quarter to win 98-96.

The fourth game was another close one, but the Lakers held on to win 103-100. With that victory, they took a 3-1 lead in the series.

In the fifth game, the Lakers blew out the Miami Heat 106-93 to win their first NBA title since 2010.

LeBron James is the Finals MVP

LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers is the Finals MVP for the 2020-2021 NBA season. This is his fourth NBA Finals MVP award.

The Lakers’ path to the title

In a season unlike any other, the Lakers ultimately came out on top, taking home their 17th NBA championship.

After losing in the 2019 NBA Finals, the Lakers retooled their roster, bringing in All-Star forward Anthony Davis. The team also added key veteran pieces like Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo to help support Davis and LeBron James.

The 2020 NBA season was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but when play resumed in the “bubble” at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, the Lakers were one of the top teams in the Western Conference.

In the playoffs, the Lakers defeated Portland, Houston and Denver to reach the Finals. In the Finals, they faced off against the Miami Heat, led by All-Stars Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.

The series went back and forth, but ultimately it was James and Davis who led the Lakers to a Game 6 victory and their first championship since 2010.

The impact of the coronavirus on the NBA season

The 2020 NBA Finals was the championship series of the National Basketball Association (NBA)’s 2019–20 season and conclusion of the 2020 playoffs. The Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat defeated the Western Conference champion Los Angeles Lakers 4–2 in a best-of-seven series played between October 1 and October 11, 2020. This was James’ tenth NBA Finals appearance in his seventeen-year career, tying him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, and Sam Jones for the most all-time. James also became the first player in NBA history to appear in ten consecutive Finals.

The other teams in the playoffs

The other teams in the playoffs were the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Denver Nuggets, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, and the Portland Trail Blazers.

The NBA’s offseason

June 24, 2021 will go down in history as the day of the NBA draft. On this date,
the New Orleans Pelicans selected Zion Williamson from Duke with the first overall
pick. This was widely expected as Zion is considered by most to be a can’t-miss
prospect and has been praised for his unique combination of size, strength, and
agility. The second pick in the draft belonged to the Memphis Grizzlies who selected
Ja Morant from Murray State. Again, this was widely expected as Morant had an
outstanding sophomore season in which he averaged 24.5 points per game and 10.0
assists per game.

What’s next for the Lakers?

Now that the 2021 NBA Finals are over, it’s time to take a look at what’s next for the Lakers. With Kobe Bryant gone, the team will need to find a new leader and figure out how to keep winning without him.
