Lakers vs Grizzles Review


LeBron James ensured the Lakers had the necessary sense of urgency for a final-round playoff game. The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t stand a chance with the Laker’s intensity combined with a defensive performance by Anthony Davis. D’Angelo Russell scored a career playoff-high 31 points, and Los Angeles completed its first-round shock of the Grizzlies with a 125-85 victory in Game 6 on Friday night.

Davis had 16 points and 14 rebounds while blocking five shots and dominating the paint. For the seventh-seeded Lakers, who clinched a playoff series in their own arena for the first time since 2012, James scored 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting. The Lakers won all three of their home games in the series, and the last triumph was a frightening demonstration of what they can do when James and Davis are healthy, along with their whole supporting cast.

In Game 6, Davis’ intimidating defensive presence mostly shut down Memphis’ attack, while Russell’s five 3-pointers highlighted a slick offensive effort from a late-blooming club with title hopes. The team goes as Davis goes. Los Angeles will play the winner of Sunday’s Game 7 between Sacramento and defending champion Golden State on the road next Tuesday.
