Los Angeles – Basketball national player Dennis Schröder and the Los Angeles Lakers shot their playoff series in the North American NBA and took a 2-1 lead against the Phoenix Suns.
The champion, who won the title in front of empty ranks in the corona virus-protected bubble in Orlando last year, won his first home game in the finals since April 28, 2013 with 109: 95. To move into the second round, the Californians need two more victories.
Schröder with 20 points
As with the first Lakers success, Anthony Davis led Los Angeles to victory with 34 points. But also Schröder (20 points) and LeBron James (21) knew how to convince in front of about 7000 spectators who had to wear mouth and nose protection. The decision was made after switching sides.
The Milwaukee Bucks played dominantly over the entire season. They didn’t give the Miami Heat a chance at 113-84 and only need one more win to advance. Six players from the Bucks scored double digits.
In addition, the Denver Nuggets grabbed the first game at the Portland Trail Blazers. The team around All-Star candidate Nikola Jokic also took a 2-1 lead with the 120: 115 away win.
