The Golden State Warriors Keep Their Hopes Alive with Victory over the Los Angeles Lakers
Stephen Curry showed his class as he led the Golden State Warriors to a dominant 121-106 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. The defending NBA champions now trail by only one game in their best-of-seven semi-finals series and have kept their hopes of reaching the Western Conference finals alive.
The three-time MVP scored 27 points, while Andrew Wiggins added another 25 and Draymond Green made a significant contribution with 20 points of his own. In contrast, LeBron James top-scored for the visitors with just 25 points on an otherwise disappointing night for the Lakers.
Golden State’s chances were given a boost when Anthony Davis was forced off due to injury after being accidentally struck on the head by Kevon Looney. The severity of Davis’ condition remains unclear, but it could be a huge blow for a team that is trying to reach its first conference final since winning an NBA championship in 2020.
