One of the biggest surprises in the NBA 2022-23 season was the Lakers being able to jump from the 11th seed to the 7th seed. The Purple and Gold started on the wrong foot the season with a 2-10 record.

Against all odds for non-Lakers fans, the team was able to make it to the playoffs and after defeating the 2nd seed the Grizzlies in the first round, many believe that the purple and gold postseason run was going to end against the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers won in 6 games, and now Klay Thompson has opened up and accepted LA's superiority, something that probably won't have Curry content.

“That Lakers series was tough. Obviously, I didn’t shoot the ball as well as I wanted to. We shot it terribly. It’s tough when Anthony Davis is down there at the rim, that man is like elastic, he just affects so many shots. LeBron still doing his thing. So I give the Lakers credit, they played very well.”

The Lakers' defense was the key against the Warriors

The Warriors are known for their motion offense where there is nonstop movement on and off the ball to get their shooters in Curry and Thompson open. Credit the Lakers' defense for playing with intensity and attention to detail, running the Warriors off the 3-point line as much as they could to make things tough.
