The Lakers return to Crypto.com Arena to host the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.
A victory for LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers would eliminate the reigning NBA champions and send the Lakers into the conference finals against the top-seeded Denver Nuggets.
“Every moment is its own challenge and its own game and its own opportunity to see what you’re made of,” James said. “Friday is another opportunity for us to see who we are and see what we’re made of and to go out there with, I guess, the grit and the fight that we’ve had since we came together after the All-Star break.”
A victory for Steph Curry and the Warriors would extend the series to a winner-take-all Game 7 on Sunday in San Francisco. Golden State has won a road game in 28 consecutive playoff series, an NBA record, but the team has yet to do so in this series and the Lakers have not lost a home game since late March.
Davis “should be available” tonight, according to Lakers coach Darvin Ham, after a hit to the head removed Davis from Game 5 early.
