Lakers Win Their Record Tying 17th Title, 12th as L.A.

October 11, 2020

So when what I knew and feared would happen, it did so in a devastating Lakers’ rout of the Miami Heat, who until the game 6 debacle, had played so well.

The Lakers, I believe would have titled no matter, but face it the Heat and Denver Nuggets paved the way for an easy L.A. crown, by beating the Bucks and Clippers respectively.

L.A. went (16-5) straight up and I will say (12-8-1) vs the spread. Miami was (14-7) st. up and 15-5-1 ATS.

The Lakers title in 6 for the 6th time (half of their 12 L.A. crowns, they won 5 Minneapolis “such”) as L.A. and clinch on a Sunday for the 5th time as L.A. (the glorious first with Wilt and Jerry West in ’72, ’85 a first ever title round win vs the Celtics, ’87 with Earvin “Magic” Johnson the MVP and ’09 with the late, great player, Kobe Bryant “copping” the honor are the others. The ” ” among much else, including this title, in my opinion, remind of what went wrong).

Surely Mr. James won the Final Round MVP, I think his 4th such honor.

Anthony Davis was tremendous and I cite Ra Rondo, who helped best L.A. in ’08, their last final round loss.

The Lakers have won 3 straight NBA final rounds and 6 of their last 8. They are (12-14) as L.A. in final round play, after starting (0-7).
