“James, if you can’t attack the paint zone, you can’t beat GSW” Lakers ‘Legend’ Magic’s advice
Los Angeles Lakers ‘Legend’ Magic Johnson has some stinging advice for LeBron James and his teammates.
The Lakers lost to the home team 메이저사이트Golden State Warriors by 27 points in the second round of the second round of the NBA 2022-2023 Western Conference playoffs held at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California, on the 5th (Korean time). The series record was 1 win and 1 loss.
On this day, the Lakers cruised in the first quarter, but then collapsed helplessly.
Regarding the loss, Johnson attributed the Lakers’ “failure to attack the paint zone.”
Johnson analyzed that the Lakers were able to win the first game because Anthony Davis and others were good at attacking the paint zone in the Golden State camp. Davis had 30 points and 23 rebounds.
However, in Game 2, Davis only had 11 points and 7 rebounds. This is because Golden State coach Steve Kerr launched a strategy to block Lakers players from invading the paint zone.
Johnson emphasized, “James and his teammates will lose again if they don’t properly deal with Golden State’s strategy to block the paint zone in Game 3.”
It is evaluated that he occupied a high ground as he won one win first in enemy territory, but Johnson seems to be concerned about the content of the Lakers game in the second game.
