ASTROS Beat RAYS again 4-3 and BRAVES Took Revenge defeating DODGERS 10-2

    AMERICAN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP                      ASTROS VS RAYS

ASTROS They're still alive! Puerto Rican Carlos Correa with a solo homer in the ninth inning gives Houston the second consecutive victory by the same score of 4-3 yesterday and the series for the American Conference is now 3-2 still in favor of the RAYS .

This Friday again the ASTROS  will try to stay alive by winning the third game in a row and tie the series with the RAYS of Tampa Bay. Houston has to win or be eliminated as the American Conference Series went 3-2. 

           NATIONAL CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP                  DODGERS vs BRAVOS

Starting the third game for the National Conference Championship title, the DODGERS made history by setting a new record for runs scored in an inning in a postseason game. Los Angeles team scored 11 runs in the first! when the game was over, the DODGERS had beat the BRAVES 15-3. And this past Thursday the BRAVES exploded in the sixth inning scoring 6 runs to beat the DODGERS 10-2. 

4th GAME BRAVOS  10  DODGERS 2

A solo home run by Puerto Rican Edwin Rios put the DODGERS up on the board 1-0 in the third inning . 

In the fourth inning another solo homer by Dominican Ozuna  tied the game 1-1.

The BRAVOS then connected 3 doubles in a row in the sixth inning against pitcher Kershaw scoring 2 more runs (3-1) which caused a change of pitchers for the angelinos. 

However, the arrival of Graterol could not contain Atlanta's "Brave" offense and he was only able to get 1 out allowing 3 more runs before leaving the mound. Victor González came in with the game 6-1 in favor of The BRAVES who managed to score 1 more run before Gonzalez finally shut down the inning.


We got to the 7th inning where the DODGERS were able to get the bases loaded a couple of times but poorly scored only 1 run. 7-2 BRAVES.

At the end of the 7th Ozuna connected his second homer in this game and put the scoreboard 8-2 in favor of Atlanta.

When the curtain of the fourth game finally fell  in the ninth inning, the scoreboard reflected a score with a taste of revenge by the BRAVOS who added 2 more runs, to bury the DODGERS 10 runs to 2. The beating they took the day before losing 15-3 to Los Angeles had been left in the past…

The action continues today for all four teams starting at 3 PM Pacific Time...

MVP LEBRON JAMES and The LAKERS Win Their 17TH Championship 106-93


The LAKERS won the NBA Finals and their 17th NBA Championship defeating the Miami Heat 106 to 93 on Sunday. 

The series ended 4-2 and LeBron James not only got his fourth championship with 3 different teams (Miami, Cleveland and Los Angeles), but also for the fourth time was elected MVP of a Finals Series. 

 After a season that was in doubt to be played due to the corona virus pandemic, the LAKERS after a decade, obtained another title, but this time without their fans present. In fact there will be no parade in Los Angeles, until after the threat of the pandemic has passed.

LAKERS WON THE 17TH NBA CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE

THE KING LEBRON JAMES GOT HIS 4TH MVP 

THE ROAD TO THE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP

The LAKERS of Los Angeles, California began last Wednesday night, September 30, the road to the title of the NBA by facing the HEAT of Miami

FIRST GAME SEPTEMBER 30 

The final score of the first game last week was 116-98 and left no doubt who was the better team in that game. I personally believe this final series will be 4-1 in favor of the LAKERS and will end in the fifth game, unless Lebron and company lose the rhythm and effectiveness demonstrated last Wednesday. (I failed on my prediction because the series ended 4-2)

SECOND GAME OCTOBER 2
Last Friday, October 2, the second game of the series of 7 to be played took place and the score again favored the LOS ANGELES team 124-114. Although the MIAMI players left everything on the court and fought with all their hearts, the pair of Lebron James and Anthony Davis was simply overwhelming 65 points scored between them in that game.

THIRD GAME OCTOBER 4

But this past weekend, the NBA Championship Series went 2-1 in favor of the LOS ANGELES LAKERS, as the HEAT on Sunday October 4, melted the Los Angeles offense winning their first game in the series 115-104.



FOURTH GAME OCTOBER 6 

The LAKERS victory this Tuesday night took another step towards the NBA Championship title. Anthony Davis sealed the LAKERS victory this time, with an extraordinary 3-point basket giving him a total of 22 on his personal account, and blocking a basket attempt by Butler, the best player for the HEAT, with less than a minute left to play.  

Lebron James and Anthony Davis both started missing shots and out of rhythm, but as the minutes went by they both started to play at the level we are used to see them play, especially on the second half. At the end, this very close game was decided in the last couple of minutes in favor of the LAKERS thanks to Davis great finishing performance. 

FIFTH GAME OCTOBER 9

MIAMI HEAT sent a message to The LAKERS´ Fans of Los Angeles this past Friday that read: "Put the champagne back in your refrigerator" as they beat the LAKERS by just 3 points 111-108.  

We saw another brilliant performance of both Butler who scored 35 points for Miami, and Lebron who scored 40 points unfortunately for a lost cause for the LAKERSJimmy Butler and Duncan along with the Miami Heat team showed that they are not giving up that easy. 

MIAMI HEAT VS. LOS ANGELES LAKERS STATISTICS

Before getting to the finals, the LAKERS eliminated the Denver NUGGETS, while Miami HEAT beat the Boston CELTICS

The NBA Finals´Show will include stars like LeBron James, Jimmy Butler, Anthony Davis and Bam Adebayo among others.The NBA Finals will gather enthusiasts living in 215 nations and territories in 48 languages. 

LeBron James was once again the protagonist of the Finals: these were the tenth finals of his career, so far with a negative record of 4-6. But the King shone throughout this season with the Lakers and, after his tremendous performance in the final game against the Denver Nuggets (38 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists), he managed to reach other finals and obtain his fourth ring of Champion of the NBA. At his side he had another All-Star like Anthony Davis , valued as one of the five best players in the last regular season , who excelled in his first appearance in a Championship Finals.

In the history of basketball, only one team has won a championship final NBA after trailing the series 3-1 and that team was precisely the former team of Lebron James in 2016 the Cavaliers. The Cleveland team came back from that series curiously against another California team, the Golden State Warriors.

The Cavaliers won 3 games in a row to win that championship that represented the third ring for Lebrón and the fourth came this Sunday with the LAKERS who dedicated the victory to their beloved friend Kobe Bryant , who died this year, a few months after retiring, and who guided them in 2000, 2001, 2002 to the three-time NBA championships and then in 2009 and 2010 which was the last year the LAKERS had one before    todays' game. 

The first two rings Lebron had were precisely with this year finals´rival MIAMI HEAT in 2012 and 2013.
