Lakers win their 6th at home and demonstrate to the league that these young pups are a defensive force to be reckoned with. It could have been much easier if they would have made their free throws. They shot 44%, missing 15 free throws but still came away with a one point victory.
Everyone played hard and helped to seal the deal but the real story here is Laker rookie Kyle Kuzma versus the Celtics’ Jason Tatum. Tatum was as sub par tonight as Kuzma was at the top of his game.
Congratulations to Kuzma and the Lakers for this great win against our arch enemies!
