LAKERS VS WARRIORS GAME 1 TONIGHT
The Los Angeles Lakers have done it again! The Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies in game 6, clinching their spot in the second round of the NBA playoffs. LeBron James was ecstatic about the win, taking to Twitter to quote the JAY-Z song “Trouble” in celebration.
The Lakers will now face off against the Golden State Warriors in the round 2 playoffs, beginning tonight. It marks the first time in NBA history that all four California-based teams—the Lakers, Warriors, Clippers, and Sacramento Kings—have made it this far in the playoffs.
The Lakers will look to extend their winning streak against the Warriors, who have been on an impressive run of their own. After a lackluster regular season, the Warriors have seen a resurgence in the playoffs.
Nevertheless, the Lakers have faced the Warriors in the playoffs several times in recent years and have often come out on top. With a healthy roster and the confidence of a game 6 win, the Lakers are looking to make a statement against the Warriors.
Only time will tell if the Lakers can keep their momentum going and make it all the way to the Western Conference Finals. Stay tuned to the Los Angeles Times for continued coverage of the Lakers’ playoff run.
