For the first time since 2010…the Lakers wrote history

 This has happened only five times in NBA history.

The Los Angeles Lakers won the크크크벳 2023 NBA Playoffs 1st round Memphis Grizzlies in Game 6 of the series 125-85, by a whopping 40 points, held at Arena on the 29th (Korean time).

D’Angelo Russell scored the most with 31 points and four assists, while LeBron James struggled with 16 points and 14 rebounds.

There have only been five times in NBA history that the No. 7 seed has upset the No. 2 seed. It was first accomplished by Seattle in 1987 against Dallas, a feat only accomplished by Golden State (1989, 1991), New York (1998), and San Antonio (2010).

The Lakers got to stand shoulder to shoulder with them. Even at the beginning of the season, the Lakers, who were at the bottom of the West, completely changed the team constitution by signing D’Angelo Russell, Jared Vanderbilt, Malik Beasley, and Rui Hachimura at the trade deadline.

In the aftermath of starting the season with 2 wins and 10 losses, the seed itself is the 7th seed, which is a lower seed. However, their current performance should be viewed as that of a top-seeded team. He finished the regular season with 9 wins and 2 losses and defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Play-in Tournament. Since then, as an underdog, he has also relatively smoothly defeated the strong Memphis Grizzlies.

The one-two punch of LeBron and Anthony Davis, the quality of the role players, and the adaptation of the new head coach Davin Hamm are harmonious. After the match, Hamm expressed confidence in his chances of winning, saying, “It’s a start.” Will the 7th seed Lakers be able to lift the trophy?
