If they were no surprises in sports the Lakers would have won Game 4 in the series vs. the Warriors (1987 Playoff), but since there are, they faced the greatest basketball performance in Eric “Sleepy” Floyd career. The Warriors guard made that game 51 pts, 10 ast, 4 stl, 3 reb and led Golden State to a 129-121 win.
It’s the Shaq time baby- When the Lakers met the Pacers in the 2000 NBA finals, it was Shaquille O’Neal who took upon himself to delivers the message – the championship belongs to L.A. By the end of game 1 O’Neal was heard loud & clear all the way to Indiana, with the help of the numbers: 43 pts, 19 reb, 4 ast and 3 blk. The Lakers won the game 104-87.
In the game vs Philadelphia, Kobe Bryant goes up for a 3 pointer (that was ruled later as 2 point shot) and the ball dives in, thus pushing Bryant up the ladder (stepping on Shaq’s head on the way) to the 5th spot in the all-time scoring list, with 28,601 points. Bryant scored that game 28 points.
