The Los Angeles Lakers laughed first in the face-to-face confrontation between the two teams, which is considered the best match of the NBA playoffs this season.
On the 3rd, the Lakers won 117-112 in the first game of the 2022-2023 NBA Western Conference Playoffs (PO) 2nd round (4 wins in 7 games) against the’defending champion’ Golden State. Two superstars representing the NBA, LeBron James (Lakers) scored 22 points and 11 rebounds, and Stephen Curry (Golden State) scored 27 points and 6 rebounds. Davis, the center, took the lead in suppressing the baseline by scoring 30 points, the most of both teams, and grabbing 23 rebounds that day. 토스카지노 Davis’ rebounds were 43% of the team’s total rebounds (53). He sprinkled 5 assists and recorded 4 blocked shots that broke opponents. “Golden State is the defending champion,” Davis said. It is a team that can burn at any time, so you cannot be relieved even if you lead by a few points,” he said. “The victory here (Golden State’s home) gave us great confidence.”
Golden State’s ‘one-two punch’ Curry and Klay Thompson’s shooting sense was not as good as usual. Curry made 6 3-pointers to the rim that day, including a successful 3-pointer to tie the score at 112-112 with 1:38 remaining at the end of the 4th quarter, but the shooting success rate was only 41.7% (10 out of 24). Curry’s field goal success rate in the regular season is 49.3%. With 25 points, Thompson’s field goal success rate was only 36% (9 out of 25 success).
The two teams, who faced each other in the NBA Finals for four consecutive seasons from the 2017 to 2018 season, met again on the PO stage after 5 years and are considered the best box office matchup in the postseason. The second game between the two teams will be held on the 5th.
In the second round of the Eastern Conference PO, New York defeated Miami 115-105 and matched the series record with 1 win and 1 loss.
