Game 4 was a huge opportunity to take control of the series and put Miami on their heels.
Thanks to big performances from LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope down the stretch, they were able to come away with the 102-96 victory.
After the game, fans and media took to NBA Twitter to discuss the match and the outlook for L.A. as they stand just one win away from an NBA Finals.
KCP, Rondo, Morris and Caruso was HUGE tonight for the Lakers, AD put on a Defensive Clinic and Lebron finally woke the hell up in the 2nd half finishing with 28-12-8…sometimes you have to take an ugly win!!! Carry on…

KCP doing all that late while chasing Herro and Robinson around the whole fourth is really impressive. His growth hasn’t been talked about enough in the “Its just LeBron and AD”.

In their first Finals appearance since 2010, the Lakers are on the verge of bringing glory back to one of the NBA’s most historical franchises. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been their driving forces.
In Miami, Jimmy Butler has propelled them way beyond expectations, but not even his powers seem like enough to overcome the duo in Purple and Gold. With their backs against the wall, they will have to win the next three games if they want to save their season and, ultimately, become the 2020 Champions.
If not, we could see the Lakers be crowned as the Champs as soon as Friday.
