The Los Angeles Lakers were hoping to wrap up the 2020 NBA Finals in Game 5 and win the NBA title for the first time in ten years.
The Lakers wore their ‘Black Mamba’ uniforms in honour of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. They had never lost in the Black Mamba jerseys and it was expected that the Lakers will be motivated by the jerseys and go on beat the Miami Heat.
But unfortunately, the Lakers lost 108-111 to the Miami Heat to take the series into a sixth game.
The Lakers actually had very good opportunity to win the game.
LeBron James had the ball out top with 16.8 seconds left in the game and the Lakers were down by 1 point. Jimmy Butler was in front of him… LeBron drove to his right, Butler moved with him and two-other Heat defenders closed in, so LeBron made the right basketball play and made a pass out to a wide-open Danny Green at the top of the three-point line… and Green made a shot and missed.
Danny Green received a lot of backlash from NBA fans on Twitter for missing the shot. Here are reactions from NBA fans in Ghana:
