Top 10 Performances In Lakers History

5: GEORGE MIKAN vs. Washington Capitals, Game 5 BAA Finals, 1949
This performance was pre-NBA, but regardless, it’s an incredible account of a Lakers commitment to the game and sacrifice for the team. During game 4 of the series, dominant star George Mikan suffered a broken wrist. But that didn’t stop him. He played in Game 5, somehow still managing to score 22 points. Even though the Lakers lost the game, they won the series, and much of that credit goes to Mikan’s example of what it means to be a competitor.

4: JAMES WORTHY vs. Detroit Pistons, Game 7 NBA Finals, 1988
In another clutch Game 7 performance ‘Big Games James’ lived up to his name. He scored 36 points, took down 16 rebounds and had 10 assists, helping the Lakers earn back-to-back championships, this one over a very tough Detroit Pistons team.
