FINALLY, Bron and Co. were able to shake off the Game 1 jitters they’ve experienced all postseason long.
With statement performances from Anthony Davis and LeBron James, the Lakers walked away with this one, 126-114. By halftime, the Los Angeles squad had all but sealed the deal, cruising their way to a statement victory in the first match of the Western Conference Finals.
