On October 7, Beijing time, the fourth game of the NBA Finals was over. The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Heat 102-96 and scored 3-1 to get the final match point. Before today's game, James texted all the Lakers teammates to inform them that this game must be won because he thinks this is one of the most important games of his career. As a result, James’ approach did have a certain effect. His teammates improved their morale before the start of the game, and even Pope and Green, who had been playing poorly before, also performed well.
In the end, James led the Lakers to victory with the help of many teammates, and now he is only one victory away from his fourth championship trophy.
According to the statistics, 4 Lakers scored in double figures, James 28 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 steal, Davis 22 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 4 blocks, Pope 15 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists, Danny Green 10 points and 2 Rebounds and 2 steals.
The Heat also scored in double figures with 4 people, Butler 22 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals and 1 block, Hiero 21 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal, Adebayor 15 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal, Duncan Robinson 17 points, 3 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.
In fact, in this game, the Lakers did not perform well in the first half of James and Davis, but the Heat played a good offensive performance in the first two quarters. But the role players on the Lakers side stood up. Pope contributed 10 points in the first quarter. It was with Pope's firepower that the Lakers bite the game. In the first half, the Lakers led the Heat 49-47 with Caruso's three-pointer.
In the second half of the game, the two core Lakers, James and Davis, finally found a touch. James faced Adebayor's defense and hit a long Logoshot to help the Lakers determine the lead. This also became a turning point in the game. Although the Heat once evened the difference in the final quarter, but at a critical moment, James once again stepped forward to help the Lakers lead, and the Lakers finally won the game.
Although the Lakers won the game in this campaign, they still encountered a lot of trouble in the whole process. The return of Adebayor of the Heat did make the Lakers suffer a lot. As long as Adebayor is on the court, the Heat's defense becomes more three-dimensional and complete, so in the first half, James and Davis did not have any good opportunities under the strict defense of the Heat. Fortunately, Popper of the Lakers played very well in this game, and as soon as he came up, he made no mistakes and supported the Lakers' firepower in the first quarter. And at the end of the game, Pope also scored two key shots to help the Lakers win the game. After the game even Lakers legend Magic Johnson also said that Pope is the hero of this game.
And the core James had a very bad performance in the first half, not only scoring 8 points but also sending up to 5 turnovers. This is a very shameful thing for a team leader. But James' adjustment ability is definitely at the superstar level. As soon as he came up in the second half, he opened his personal mode. He not only scored 20 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists in the second half, but also only made 1 turnover. It seems that in the most important game of his career, James certainly can't let his poor performance continue. "Must win" is his promise to his teammates, so he must lead by example. The overall performance of 28 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 steal was also selected as the best data in today's game.
核心詹姆斯在上半年的表现非常糟糕，不仅得到8分，而且还创造了5次失误。对于团队负责人来说，这是非常可耻的事情。但是詹姆斯的调整能力绝对是超级巨星。下半场他一上场，便打开了个人模式。下半场他不仅得到20分，9个篮板和4个助攻，而且还只丢了1个失误。在他职业生涯中最重要的一场比赛中，詹姆斯显然不能让他糟糕的表现继续下去。 “必胜”是他对队友的承诺，因此他必须以身作则。 28分，12个篮板，8次助攻和1次抢断的整体表现也被选为当今比赛的最佳数据。
Now James is only one game away from his fourth championship trophy, and the finals MVP is stepping into him. Throughout these four games, although Davis has also played a good performance, but James is better than Davis both on the court and off the court. Unless Davis can break out a phenomenal performance in the next game, it will be difficult for him to steal the FMVP trophy from James.
After the Lakers won the game with a 3-1 championship point, the probability of the Lakers winning the championship rose to 94%, of which the probability of 5 games, 6 games and 7 games were 59.9%, 24.0% and 9.6% respectively. In the history of the finals, there have been 35 times with a big score of 3-1. Among them, 34 times the leader won the championship, and only 1 time the backward side reversed the championship. That is, in 2016, the Cavaliers led by James reversed and defeated the 73-win Warriors.
And James has taken a 3-1 lead 16 times in the playoff career series. He has won the series 15 times before. Will the Lakers win the championship in the next game? Welcome everyone to discuss!
