October 7, Beijing time,
Before today, the Lakers had no defeat in the first three quarters of the season, leading their opponents, with 55 wins and 0 losses. Today, although the Lakers played hard in the first three quarters, they still achieved a 75-70 lead. In the end, this law was not broken and became 56 wins and 0 losses, which is the best record in history.
It is worth mentioning that the 2017-18 Cavaliers achieved a 50-1 record with a lead in the first three quarters. This means that in the first two seasons of keeping LeBron healthy (in the 2018-19 season, he took 17 consecutive breaks due to groin problems) led the team to lead the first three quarters with 106 wins and 1 loss, which is really scary.
The fourth quarter is indeed the current weakness of the Lakers, they are not very good at playing upwind. But as long as the first three energy-savings build the lead, their accident in the fourth quarter has never happened.
But today, in the finals, facing the Heat who never admit defeat, the Lakers still encountered a lot of pressure in the fourth quarter. LeBron has gone all out, desperately going to the basket to create fouls and create opportunities, but the Lakers have never been able to get rid of the Heat.
The Lakers only led by 2 points in the last 3 minutes, but LeBron had no means at the critical moment.
Then the suspense was not over, and Claude's three-pointer brought the score closer. In the last minute and a half, Rondo made a breakthrough, coupled with Davis's key three-pointer, allowed the Lakers to stabilize the advantage, and won the victory without risk.
The Lakers lost the last game and Davis was completely crushed to death. They responded so quickly, allowing Davis to hit +18 efficiency points, and LeBron also played in the second half of the field. The temperament that a championship team should have.
