Lakers start series with W

Playing on the road, LeBron James begins with the advantage in the matchup against Stephen Curry

Home » Lakers start series with W

The most awaited series so far in the NBA Playoffs finally began. And it was not in the most predictable way. The Los Angeles Lakers start the series with a W on the road, playing in San Francisco. This can be decisive as it is expected that teams playing at home always have an advantage.

As expected, the game was great. Both teams played at their finest and scored a lot of points. However, it is possible that we see even more points in the next games. They will play again tomorrow in San Francisco on Game 2 and the series continues with Game 3 on the weekend, this time in Los Angeles.

LeBron James and Stephen Curry didn’t have their finest performances, especially because of their teammates. But they still did well. The Lakers were winning by one point at halftime when the scoreboard showed 65-64. In the second half, they spread up this advantage until getting to the final score of 117-112.
