Just like I hoped, the Lakers showed up to Game 6 on Friday night with only one thing on their mind: winning. They sent the Nuggets packing with a 119-92 victory and are now heading to the NBA Finals. The Lakers played sharply in order to avoid having to play the Nuggets again in Game 7 by shooting 57.3 percent from the field. The Lakers played four perfect quarters, starting with a 13-point lead and keeping it solid until they stretched it to 20 by the fourth quarter, showing the Nuggets who is boss.
Saturday night, the Orlando Magic defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-90 clinching the Eastern Conference Finals. They’ll meet the Lakers for the first game of the finals on Thursday in Orlando. I sort of wish that the Cavaliers had won cause I really would have liked to see Kobe Bryant and Lebron James go head-to-head. However, the matchup between the Lakers and the Magic should be exciting enough, especially if the Lakers and keep it together and sweep the Magic!
