Lonzo Ball left early with calf soreness, but the Los Angeles Lakers managed to pull out a 108-98 victory over the Dallas Mavericks anyway. In just 21 minutes, Ball had 16 points, 10 assists and four boards, and was a team-high plus-17. His favorite target, Kyle Kuzma, finished with 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting. Dallas, meanwhile, was led by Dennis Smith, Jr., who went for 21 points, six assists and three boards. Yogi Ferrell added 15 on 6-of-19 shooting. With the semifinals now in the rearview, the Lakers will move on to the championship game to take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.
