    1983 Lakers what happened vs Philly in the 2nd half's

    Watching Game 1 of the 1984 Finals and pretty much in the 3rd quarter Dick Stockton made a comment that kinda intrigued me and he mentioned that in the 1983 NBA Finals that the Lakers had the lead in every single game vs the Sixers at halftime.
    We all know the Sixers swept that series and of course should have won that series as they were the superior team overall and statistically.

    I guess my question is, how could they have the lead in every game at the half with a team that has stars and yet lose every game? Both teams had the top two records in the league and the seeds in there conferences.

    You should do a boxscore recap of the 2nd halves and see who did the most to give the sixers separation and who couldnt keep pace on the Lakers.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    @ Los Angeles (games 3 and 4) 4th quarters

    Philadelphia - 39
    Los Angeles - 22

    Game 4:
    Philadelphia - 33
    Los Angeles - 15

    inexcusable

    Lakers were kind of thin without Worthy

    I doubt it would have made a difference in the winner of the series but it would have made the series more competitive
