The rebellion of the lower seed blowing in the NBA playoffs has stopped for now. Top-seeded teams escaped from the brink and avoided elimination.
The 6th seed Golden State Warriors of the Western Conference won 121-106 in Game 5 of the 2nd round of the 2022-2023 NBA Playoffs against the 7th seed LA Lakers held at the Chase Center in San Francisco on the 11th. Golden State, which was on the verge of being eliminated with 1 win and 3 losses until the 4th game, succeeded in counterattacking at home.
Golden State drove the Lakers with its hot offense, scoring 70 points in the first half alone. The Lakers started chasing Golden State little by little beyond the middle of the fourth quarter, but key big man Anthony Davis (23 points, 9 rebounds) suffered a head injury in the process of competing with Golden State’s Kevon Rooney and lost power.
Stephen Curry, who recorded a triple-double in Game 4 but lowered his head due to lack of support from his teammates, led the team to victory with 27 points and 8 assists.토스카지노
In the Eastern Conference, the 5th seed New York Knicks beat the 8th seed Miami Heat 112-103 at home, taking the series to 2-3, reviving as well. Miami, which reached the playoffs through the play-in tournament, caused a stir in the first round by defeating the Milwaukee Bucks, who had the highest overall win rate, and even drove the Knicks to the brink of elimination, but their momentum faltered with the defeat that day.
The Knicks seemed to finish the game easily by running away with a 19-point lead in the middle of the third quarter, but suffered from Miami’s fierce pursuit at the end. Miami, which boasts a tight defense, launched a counterattack from the second half of the third quarter, and with 2 minutes and 37 seconds left in the game, Jimmy Butler’s free throw scored a 103-101, two-point lead. However, after blocking Miami’s attack well, the Knicks ran away again by linking free throws obtained from fouls into points one after another, and scored a wedge with Julius Randle’s layup 17.1 seconds before the end.
