Lakers taste their first championship in a decade since Kobe Bryant won his fifth and final title ten years ago, the basketball legend that the world lost earlier this year due to a helicopter crash.

Lakers took the lead after finishing Q1 with 28-20 and increased the gap further with a whopping 36-point lead after the first half. Although Heat bounced back with 35-19 in Q4, the numbers were already settled.
