The Los Angeles Lakers were able to win Game 4 of the NBA Finals and are now just one game away from winning a title.

After a sloppy Game 3 loss for the Los Angeles Lakers, they were able to bounce back nicely in Game 4 against the Miami Heat.

The loss in Game 3 was a bit of a shocker for the Lakers, the Heat were without both Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo. These are two of the key players on the Heat, and the fact they were not only competitive but were able to win was pretty remarkable.

In Game 4, the Heat were able to get Adebayo back in the lineup, but it wasn’t enough for them to be able to replicate what they did in Game 3. Knowing that they didn’t want to let the Heat back into the series, the Lakers were able to handle their business and get the win.

Los Angeles once again had strong games from their two stars, as the battle for Finals MVP will be a highly contested one between LeBron James and Anthony Davis. James led the Lakers with 28 points in the game, as he nearly got a nice triple-double with 12 rebounds and eight assists.

Like James, Davis had a strong game as he totaled 22 points, nine rebounds, and 4 blocks. Davis has been fantastic on both ends of the court.

In addition to the stars, the Lakers got some great performances from their supporting cast. In the starting lineup, Danny Green totaled 10 points and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was the third leading scoring with 15 points.

Off the bench, the Lakers got strong games from Kyle Kuzma and Markieff Morris who both scored 9 points, as the Lakers were balanced on the offensive end. After the win, the Lakers are now just one win away from a championship.
