Lakers beat Heat to win 17 NBA Championship
Led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Lakers claimed their 17th championship in the 2020 NBA Finals. The Los Angeles Lakers had a 106-93 win over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
James had 28 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists while Davis had 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Lakers. The team, which has been dealing with the sudden death of the iconic Kobe Bryant in January, also had to face the many challenges that came with leaving home for three months to play at Walt Disney World in a bubble designed to keep inhabitants safe from the coronavirus.
The Lakers also said that they were playing the rest of the season in Bryant’s memory.
Bam Adebayo had 25 points and 10 rebounds for Miami, which got 12 points from Jimmy Butler — the player who, in his first Heat season, got the team back to title contention. Rajon Rondo scored 19 points for the Lakers.
